Boho Crochet Book Review
Number of Pages: 147 pages
Number of Projects: 30+
Types of Projects: Home & Fashion (afghans, pillows, scarves, hats, bags, and more.)
Difficulty: The difficulty rating for these projects are – Beginner, Intermediate, Accomplish, & Advanced. The book has project of all levels, but the majority of them seem to be beginner and intermedite.
Yarn Used: This book did a great job of including projects from each yarn weight category. The patterns themselves only list the weight yarn used for the project, not the brand, but the back of the book does include a section that tells you what kind of yarn was used for each project. The only downfall I noticed is that the back of the book lists what kinds of yarns were used, but it doesn’t tell you what weight the brand is. I didn’t recognize all the brands, so I had to go back and look to see what weight it was. Not a huge deal, I think it just may have been more convenient to have all that info in the same place.
First Impression: Lots of color!
Favorite Project: Vintage Fan Ripple Blanket
Review: Not only are there over 30 patterns in this book, but by changing your color options it makes endless possibilities! While there are a few exceptions (ex: afghans) the majority of the projects will work up quickly. Martingale has included stitch help, with color photos, along with general information (gauge, terms, abbreviations).
I’ve only shown you a few of my favorites. You can click on any of the photos, or the link under the photo, to go to Martingale website and see the rest of the projects.
NOTE: The release date for Boho Crochet is actually tomorrow (2/17/15).
