Creative Crochet Projects: 12 Playful Projects for Beginners and Beyond

56349713. sx318

Creative Crochet Projects is a project tutorial guide with 12 crochet projects by Stephanie Pokorny. Due out 1st May 2021 from Fox Chapel on their Landauer imprint, it's 96 pages and is available in paperback and ebook formats. 

This is a collection with a fun and *very* whimsical aesthetic. Crafters who are already familiar with her work from Crochetverse or Ravelry will find more fun and humorous in this collection. The projects are split into two sections: accessories to wear and playtime projects/toys. 

The introduction is quite abbreviated and beginning crocheters will likely need to have access to support in the form of youtube videos, online instructions, or (best option) a real-life crochet guru. This will be especially important for left handed crafters because the book doesn't have any sort of illustrations or instructions for lefties. 

The included projects run the gamut from beginner friendly to quite advanced sculptural projects. I would say most of them are toward the more demanding end of the spectrum. Tools and supplies will be easily sourced from most online or retail craft outlet or big box stores. It's worth noting that terms and instructions are given in USA standard and not UK. The table with hook sizes gives both US sizes and metric however. 

This would make a good choice for public or school library acquisition, maker's groups, crafting groups, or for gifting to a crocheting friend. Four stars. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
