Inside Summertime Crochet:
Inside the cover of Summertime Crochet you will find beautiful photos of beautiful projects. These projects are meant to worked so that you can wear them while at the beach or in the evening when there is a little chill through the summer. Most of the projects in the book can be worked in about a day or two but there are a few that are larger. There is a granny stitch (not a granny square) sweater that will take a little longer than the headbands that are also in the book.
The book is broken down into three sections. You will find patterns in the “Day at the Beach” section, “Summer in the City” section or “Let’s Have a Party” section. At the beach you will find patterns for bathing suit tops, sandals, hats, light scarves and more. Summer in the City is where you will find the garments of the book with a sweater and a top. The patterns in Let’s Have a Party bring in some metallic yarn. This really stands out as a statement piece for when you are out on the town.
Overall I really enjoyed the beautiful photos that were in this book. I have a long list of projects to make and I am not yet sure where I will start. The colors in the Green Bay pattern caught my attention right away. Looking at this pattern I think about the ocean and the beach and everything that I love about summer. Blues and greens that you find in the ocean can also be found in this wrap. It would be perfect for taking a walk on the beach in the evening when the sun is setting.
This book was written by Helgrid Van Impelen and Verena Woehlk Appel. As friends from a previous job they found that they both had an interst in textiles and continued their friendship into a partnership for this book.
