Crochet Home:20 Vintage Modern Projects for the Home by Emma Lamb, published by David & Charles/F+W, has colorful and bright projects that are perfect for all around the home! There are so many great projects that will add pops of color to your home. There are patterns for gorgeous afghans, cushions, potholders, and more!Crochet Home is broken down into four different categories:
- Garlands & Decorations
- Blankets & Throws
Each pattern has wonderfully clear written instructions and charts for a more visual crocheter. There are also some great tips on getting started with your project including how to read the charts, tips on tension and blocking, explanations of pattern abbreviations and symbols. The book also contains an informative section on basic stitches and techniques with great photo tutorials. The patterns range in difficulty but the charts and tutorials are very helpful for a new crocheter to navigate their way through the projects.
