Review:

Corsages, table decorations, hat trims, card and scrapbook embellishments - there is a lot you can do with these crocheted flowers. This is one of the more entertaining ways of using up oddments of a variety of different yarns, and the best news for anybody fairly new to the craft is that these small projects grow quickly! Admittedly you will perhaps need to have a lot of leftover No 3 crochet cotton (or fine 4 ply yarn) and be reasonably proficient. This is not a book on how to crochet so you will need to know at least enough to follow a written pattern and do the basic stitches. Patterns feature traditional (in UK and US) written instructions with notes on materials, measurements and needles together with a page-sized illustration showing a use of the flower. At the beginning of the book is a useful UK/US list of terms used and hook sizes, as well as a handy double page spread showing all the flowers with their page number. Choose from garden classics such as roses, camellias, freesias or bridal orange blossom, glamorous black orchid (my favorite), historical Tudor rose or card and scrapbook friendly (ie small and flat) daisy and African violet. This is not a book with two ideas for every pattern, but often color variations are given along with suggestions for the use of the finished product. A useful little book that would make a great present for the crocheter in your life (possibly yourself!)-Myshelf.com This softcovered book is sized just right to carry in your yarn bag. All the flowers are crocheted, though some use add-ons of buttons, beads and fabric. Crocheted flowers are trending now. You can use crocheted flowers on hats, pins, home decor, as gift package decorations, fashionable necklaces and scarves. Your imagination is your best accessory guide. Crocheting flowers are perfect for using up your very small scraps of yarn. The flowers are small and portable projects that you can take with you on the go. The photographs are large and clear and easy to help you visualize how you will use them. Number three crochet cotton will show off the stitches as well as form delicate petals. Cotton has beautiful drape properties. Specialty and different weight yarns are used for particular flowers to enhance different properties. Be creative with your yarn and hook size. From tiny Freesia and African Violets to the larger Water Lily with beads and Passion Flower using a bit of eyelash yarn, you can hook your own garden. The Camelia is classic vintage using beads and buttons. The Daisy chain necklace can be used as a jumping off point to create the necklaces that are very popular now.-www.examiner.com/knitting-in-hartford If you are an ardent admirer of flowers and lover of crochet flowers, as I am, there won't be many surprises in this book. What the book offers in abundance are gloriously colourful and clear images of the flowers, a handy visual summary of contents, and great ideas for mixing media in flower creation. The twenty blooms are peony, pink cosmos, gazania, Tudor rose, clematis, hibiscus, foxgloves, waterlily, poppy, freesia, daisy chain, African violets, camellia, passionflower, antique rose, retro daisy, carnation, scabious, black orchid and orange blossom. I was disappointed that the daisy chain was not a chain of the flowers, as I've seen in other collections, but the individual flower on an amended metal chain. I was also disappointed at the absence of charts or diagrams, especially as the small text (in contrast to the big pictures) has UK terminology parenthetically included. I particularly liked the waterlily, freesia, passionflower and black orchid, and was charmed by her use of fabric, beads, ribbon and buttons in flower construction. At 8.5" by 6", this paperback is a great size for carrying around some fresh inspiration.-Crochet Savvy
