Favorite Project: The Puffs Blanket is my favorite project, but my favorite feature of the book is the links to video tutorials.
Review: There are some great projects in this book for anyone looking to freshen up on their crochet skills. I was also very impressed with many of the other features that were included in this book. Leisure Arts and Sharon Silverman have thought of everything! The book starts by refreshing you with the easiest stitches first and then works harder stitches and techniques into subsequent projects. It covers everything like the basics of sc and hdc, to changing colors and post stitches. In addition to photos for almost all the stitches used in the book, they also have photos for left handed crocheters. There is also general information (gauge, terms, abbreviations, blocking, and more).
Bonus: There are links in the ebook that will take you to online video tutorials. I believe this is an invaluable tool for those who are visual learners.
I’ve only shown you a couple of my favorite projects. You can click on any of the photos, or the link under the cover photo, to go to the Leisure Arts website and see the rest of the projects.
