Flower Loom Crochet
Flower Loom Crochet
Are you a fan of making fibre flowers with Clover's clever Hana-Ami Flower Loom (check the loom out here)? I absolutely LOVE my Flower Loom, and this book is the perfect companion.
This 32 page, A4 sized, soft cover book allows you to create 8 beautiful accessories, combining crochet with the flowers you can make on the flower loom. As an added bonus, the book provides step-by-step-instructions and diagrams for how to use the Flower Loom, plus how to create 5 different flower varieties.
Use these skills to create the stunning patterns in the book, which include a cute clutch bag, a pretty hair pin, cosy ear warmers, a rustic brooch, swirl beret, petal shawl, geometric cowl and a truly stunning scarf. Each design is presented as a fully written pattern, with colour photographs of each completed project. The projects are worked in a variety of laceweight, 4 and 10 ply yarns.
A handy addition to this book is its page of metric/imperial conversions, as well as a chart converting US/Canadian knitting needle and crochet sizes into metric sizes. Now that's a bonus!
