Beautiful Botanical Knits by Nora J Bellows

 

Reviewed by:
Jenny   

Pages:
 176

Summary:
Instructions for knitting 40 botanically correct flowers using very little yarn.  It includes difficulty levels and a project section at the back.

What did you like about this book?
This book is beautiful, detailed and colourful with clear photographs.  It's very informative explaining the importance of gauge, flower anatomy, felting and wiring etc.   It's wonderful for any knitter interested in gardening/nature with a love of flowers and colour.

What didn't you like about this book?
Nothing really but I did find the easiest patterns quite complicated until I'd got the hang of it.  You need some knitting experience and to know the basics so not for beginners.

Summary:
I received this book for christmas and, even though I am a seasoned crocheter, I can honestly say that it was very helpful little indeed.

What did you like about this book?
One of the things I liked about this book was that I had not managed to figure out how to crochet cuffs onto the mittens that I have just made for my daughter, but after just a few minutes read, this little concise compendium had it nailed for me!

Star rating:
5 out of 5
Would you recommend this book to anyone else?
Yes definitely.  A great companion for anyone new to crochet through to those with experience.
