New blog post: Little Christmas Decorations to Knit & Crochet by Sue Stratford & Val Pierce

'Little Christmas Decorations to Knit & Crochet' by Sue Stratford and Val Pierce is a cute book full of stash-busting characters to make for Christmas.


There are 40 projects in this packed book - 20 to crochet and 20 to knit.


There is everything in here from the traditional stocking and pudding patterns to more innovative patterns for gift toppers and fridge magnets.


To aim for the global market, Sue & Val have put their UK crochet directions into brackets after the European stitch so you are reminded to convert for UK crochet. The patterns look easy to follow although I haven't knitted or crocheted anything from this book (yet!).


There are two pages of instructions at the front of the book to help you with things like french knots and blanket stitch.


There's a quirky feel to the book which is really whimsical and sweet. It captures the childlike excitement you feel when thinking about making for christmas.


'Little Christmas Decorations to Knit & Crochet' is out now and is available from Search Press.

Thanks to Search Press for sending me this book to review.
