Book Description

May 6 2008
Crochet bouquets of nearly 50 whimsical, wonderful flowers, in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors! Done in upscale yarns like ribbon, chenille, and silk, this contemporary garden will get intermediate-level crocheters grasping their hooks. Some of the flora looks realistic; others are beautifully fanciful, pure products of the imagination. A simple, well-photographed basics section explains how to create them all: specialty techniques include felting, stacking the flowers, stiffening the petals, and linking the flowers together. “Grow” daffodils, dahlias, ferns, firewheels, primroses, sunflowers, and violets—or even a fantastic blossom with layers of scalloped petals radiating out in increasing size from a crystal button center. For added inspiration, a series of showcase projects incorporates the blossoms, including hats, backpacks, pillows, and cards.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless book Jan. 23 2013
Format:Paperback
I bought this book based on the one review on it but I am not satisfied with the book. Yes the flowers are original and some are whimsical but they are for the most part, difficult to make and not very nice to look at once completed. I DON'T recommend this book if you are looking for a book to make PRETTY flowers that can adorn cards or crochet projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Fabulous Flowers June 30 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an advanced crocheter, I own many crochet books, most of which tend to disappoint. This book does not disappoint. I too, like the author, adore flowers and find many motif books lacking in new or creative flowers-- same ol' thing. These designs were wonderful. The realistic flowers are great, and the whimsical, fantasy flowers are fun and worth trying for décor. I already have made several flowers used to decorate my greeting cards, and have made sunflowers in varying yarns as little gifts too. I sew, so I plan on making some smaller flowers, for spicing up tops and other items I make.

I specifically like:

1) The intro pages (with photos) on adding craft items to the center of flowers as stamens.

2) The well written, easy instructions. No diagrams here, but the instructions are easy enough, and nothing so complex that I am wanting diagrams.

3) Print in this book is easy to read, so I don't need to keep picking up the book from my lap or table. Lately, several books I have bought are printed in soft black ink and too small of font.

4) The wonderful variety of yarns and colors used to make flowers, as well as the featured projects from flowers on jeans, to decorating shower curtains. The white flowers used for wedding décor were really professionally looking.

5) The nice hints and suggestions found on several designs, such as crocheting only one row when using a carry-along yarn.

Needless to say, I am very pleased with the book and highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars There IS something new under the sun July 11 2008
By Curmudgea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Most new crochet books have little to offer that's new to an experienced crocheter; but I took a chance, ordered this book, and have not been disappointed. There are all kinds of flowers and multiple versions of each to choose from. I'm enjoying just sitting down in the evening and "picking" a flower to make with leftover yarns in my stash. Although the flowers lend themselves to lots of projects, I'm just making whatever strikes my fancy with a vague notion of eventually creating some kind of freeform floral collage. The poppy pattern is spectacular, and -- as one who loves leaf motifs -- I find there's a wonderful variety of leaf patterns to choose from (the fern and ruffled leaf are a couple of my favorites). The author also tosses in some nice ideas for embellishing the flowers,such as using purchased craft stamens, novelty yarns, beads, buttonsm and the like. For me, the real fun of this book is the process of crocheting rather than aiming for a particular project to be completed -- playing Simon Says with a pattern and seeing a lovely flower magically emerge from my hook. Plus, following these patterns opens up my own creativity; now I feel I could pick up a hook and start designing a new flower or two of my own. If I had one quibble, it would be that I wish the book were spiral bound so that it would lie flat on my lap when I'm working. However, that's true of most crochet books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely flowers! May 27 2008
By Suzanne R. Arnholt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These are the nicest set of flowers I have ever seen in one book. Many are realistic (Columbine, Daffodil), while others are "classic Irish crochet" (roses, leaf). Entire book is in color with glossy pages. Flowers are clearly pictured, though it is not always easy to find exactly which picture goes with which directions. If you have any questions, though, the author has provided a web site where you can ask...and she is a fast responder! Great product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book! Sept. 1 2008
By MidwestMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have this book, and Nicky Epstein's "Crocheted Flowers", and I prefer this one. I love the simplicity of it. She has sections on centers, stems, leaves in addition to the flowers, which makes it really easy to create something really unique. I love all of the project ideas too! These projects really give you inspiration on how you can use the flowers....from cardmaking to embellishing a shower curtain. The example photos also use a lot of different yarns, which really give inspiration on using different types of yarns to create different looks. There are no charts, and I wish charts were included, but otherwise this is a very well done book. I have so far noticed only one typo...in the index section it lists the abbreviations as page 1---they are actually on page 17. Great Book!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! Perfect! Sept. 17 2008
By Charlotte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is EXACTLY what I was hoping it would be! Clear instructions with great photographs on how to crochet all kinds of flowers. Most of the patterns are in the beginner to intermediate range, so they are do-able by almost anyone, and just gorgeous! The photos on the cover pretty much say it all...
