Crochet Crush: Creative Projects for Home and Life (Paperback)
From craft sensation Molla Mills and Laine Publishing, Crochet Crush features 23 contemporary patterns for incredible home decor and accessory pieces that you will use, wear and love for years to come.
Crochet has certainly made a comeback, and no wonder – it's a playful, mindful and easy craft; its sturdiness allows you to create wear-intensive items like carpets and bags; and the results are nothing short of stunning. In this amazing collection, Molla Mills brings together the best in modern crochet design, with projects including a duffel bag, cushion, sun visor and picnic blanket. The colorful designs incorporate modern practicality and unique style, inspired by flowers, nostalgic summers and Brooklyn neighborhoods. There is also a comprehensive section on getting started with crochet, including choosing yarns and using tools to create a range of stitches and effects.
Instead of ready-to-buy, Molla encourages readers to make their own pieces with quality materials, combine patterns and vary the colors to their liking, and enjoy the slow process. Featuring the beautiful photography and design that Laine are known for, Crochet Crush will be loved by new and experienced crocheters alike.
