The Focus of This Book:
This book has two main themes. The primary theme: it’s a crochet pattern book featuring nothing but shawl patterns. The secondary theme: the book introduces an interesting mix of crochet techniques. You’ll have the opportunity to explore each technique with the goal of using it to crochet the shawl designs featured in the book.
The featured techniques are as follows:
- Double-ended crochet
- Tunisian crochet
- Broomstick lace crochet
- Hairpin lace crochet
- Crochet motifs
- Traditional crochet
Things I Love About This Book:
Things I Didn’t Love About This Book:
Overall, thumbs up to this book. I recommend Crochet Wraps Every Which Way to you if you have an interest in wearing shawls, making prayer shawls as gifts or charity crochet projects, or learning new crochet techniques.
This book’s suggested retail price is $19.99 US, an asking price that I believe is more than fair. You pay only a dollar and change for each pattern in the book, plus you get some outstanding tutorials on top of that, which to my way of thinking means the book is an excellent value for the money you’d have to spend on it.
