Crochet Style offers readers uniquely designed patterns for high-quality accessories that stand out in a crowd but are easy to make if you have some basic crochet knowledge. With her beautiful, modern designs, Jennifer Dougherty has gathered a strong audience for the patterns she sells on Etsy, her website and crochet/knitting sites like Ravelry and Craftsy. With each pattern going for $5 online, readers get a great deal with more than 30 projects in the book at $21.99.
Jennifer’s patterns create products with better-than-average textures—just as good as what you could buy in a high-end boutique, but handmade with love. Most of the patterns are targeted for intermediate crocheters who are comfortable with basic stitches and techniques. However, several patterns are within reach of beginners to help them take their crochet skills to the next level. The book has a well-rounded mix of classics, such as the Texture Weave Beanie and matching mittens, and trendy styles such as the Powder Puff Slouch and matching boot cuffs for an urban look. Most patterns include directions for all sizes, which are not usually included in other books—baby, toddler, child, teenager, small adult or large adult.
This book is a true treasure for any crocheter seeking new, high-quality and beautiful cool weather accessories for herself, her family or to gift.
