Book Review- Simple Chic Crochet by Susan Ritchie and Karen Miller
Today I’m reviewing the book Simple Chic Crochet by Susan Ritchie and Karen Miller of Mrs Moon. First, let’s start with a little bit about the book:
Susan Ritchie and Karen Miller’s mission is to show you howsimple it is to create your own modern-casual crochet garments,accessories and homewares. There are easy-to-hook projects thatwill grow so fast you’ll be finished in a day and larger or moreintricate items that will take longer.
Crocheting is really only a Fall and Winter hobby for me, and I don’t share my yarn projects here on the blog much, but that won’t stop me from enjoying a good crochet book!
In the beginning of the book you have the content section, and the 35 projects are separated into different categories.
Truthfully, I wouldn’t make many of the projects in this book. Don’t get me wrong- they’re lovely!! but my crochet style isn’t very chic. I’m a nerd and I usually crochet more fun things, like animal hats or tea cup coasters. So it’s just a personal preference of project style, if you make more stylish crochet projects, You will love the patterns in this book.
That being said, I did still love a few of the projects included, like this adorable owl.
It is nice that there are a variety of projects. Some that are perfect for beginners, and others that have more complicated stitches for more advanced crocheters!
