Baby Shoes to crochet by Lucia Forthmann.
, fashionable styles for little feet, by Lucia Forthmann is published by search press. £7.99
As you may know, I like to review a book by making something from it. In this way I can test the pattern writing and instructions.
I hooked up a tiny boot and am halfway through the other. These are mainly amigurumi style patterns, worked in the rounds, some concentration will be useful!
Things I liked about this book:
- Easy to follow charts, (I have just started to use charts) Normal crochet stitch instructions are included too.
- Beautiful on trend designs.
- Good beginner instructions and illustrations for the stitches used.
- Well photographed.
- 16 designs, all modeled on grown up shoes..there is even a Timberland style boot too!
- 64 pages and excellent value for money at £7.99
Some things I would change:
The patterns for the sole of each style of shoe is given at the beginning of the book. I prefer my patterns all in one go, even if it means repetition. In this way you dont have to keep turning the pages back and forth. Just a little thing I know, but if thats all I would change must be a good book eh?
