This book has some great ideas for projects to make for yourself and others! Every project has a full color picture, so you can see the design and stitches (yeah!), and the instructions are very easy to read. I love how the yarn is shown by color skeins, making it very simple to visualize how much you need. The essential information also allows you to know at a quick glance, if your crochet skills are up to every project!

The projects do range from very simple to harder, and for more advanced crocheters! I love how the designs have been modernized with bright colors and designs, to appeal to an younger audience. My grandmother taught me to crochet, and I can see myself using many of the basic projects in this book, like those below, to teach Miss Grace as well!

There are plenty of projects for giving, that can be made by both young and new. A handmade project always says how much you love the recipient, so if you're thinking about sharing the love this holiday season, check out this lovely crochet book!
