If you liked Linda's tutorials here on CraftStylish, then you are absolutely going to love her new book, Crochet Adorned (Potter Craft, 2009).

This book covers everything you need to know to create beautiful crochet embellishments for your wardrobe and your home.

Linda includes the basics on getting started with crochet, including the necessary supplies and all the stitches you need to know before starting any of the projects. She even provides tips on color palettes and yarn selection.

The 20 projects and patterns are presented with beautiful full-color photographs and the instructions are easy to follow with simple illustrations and charts. Linda managed to cover more than 100 stitches in this gem, and each one looks approachable to even this beginning crocheter.

For even more on Linda, visit her blog.

Breezy Tunic - tunic with crocheted peek-a-boo sleeve inserts.

Scalloped Spring Jacket - Trench embellished with a crocheted scalloped trim.

Tree Tote - Crocheted appliques make an easy adornment for any tote bag.

I love the colors and am particularly anxious to try the peek-a-book sleeve insets. This looks like a good way to recycle a few of my long-sleeved T shirts.
Thanks, Linda, for all the hard work you put into this book! It's wonderful... :)
