Postcard Reviews March 2020 The projects in this book are just beautiful. The simplicity of the patterns and designs are enough to add a touch of stylish glamour to any home. Blankets, pillows and so many other ideas are all showcased in wonderful glossy pages, and each design is striking and vibrant despite the muted colour palette. The instructions are easy to understand and there is guidance on how to finish your chosen piece and how to add any embellishments. There is a basic technique guide, on how to crochet, and a fair isle workshop that will help with yarn colour, this comes with some handy hints and tips. I adored the throw. It has a Scandinavian vibe, and looks warm and cosy. I just know that whichever project you choose, and whether you keep it or gift it it will be loved and treasured. 5*/5
