Caitlin Sainio has been crocheting for most of her life, and especially loves the delicate geometries of thread crochet. Trained as a mechanical engineer, she's turned her engineering talents to freelance crochet design, concentrating particularly on flowers, snowflakes, and the other beautiful patterns found in nature.
The snowflake lady is back with another brilliant book including step-by-step instructions to make over 40 crochet snowflakes. You'll see all the completed snowflakes at the beginning of the book, graded from beginner to advanced. The latter are more typical of a lacy snowflake and are my favourites. Stitches and how to crochet are also at the front of the book. Each pattern shows the completed snowflake, a chart and key and clear step-by-step instructions. At the back of the book, you'll find ways to use your snowflakes - attach them to lavender sachets or clothes, make coasters, garlands or hair bands and there is a scarf pattern too. For crochet enthusiasts everywhere. * Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk * I love this book! There is nothing better than making snowflakes for Christmas.
