Summary

There are classic blocks that will always have a special place in a crocheter's heart, and this book brings many of these patterns together in one gorgeous collection. Curated by crochet designer Sarah Hazell, 150 All-Time Favorite Crochet Blocks includes the most popular motifs, like the iconic granny square in many variations, shape-changing blocks, patterns for blocks that are worked in quarters or crosses, textured, lacy and mesh blocks, and many more.

An enduring favorite with yarn crafters of all levels, blocks are both portable and perfect for small bursts of activity. If time is short, then you can work a few rounds at a time, and being portable you can carry a few with you and work on one block at a time. They help you bust your stash or declutter by using up small quantities. And they allow you to create something as large or small as you want for your own use or as a gift.

Tips on how to select yarn and color combinations run throughout the book, helping you to gain confidence in these areas. Each block is flagged by skill level, accompanied by a short description focusing on its special features and characteristics, as well as charted and row-by-row instructions. The exciting combinations will remind you of why you fell in love with a particular block the first time around or, for newbies, it could be the start of a love affair.
