  1. Hi Connie, I assure you the scarf pictured at the bottom and the stitch diagram are for the same scarf 🙂 The pattern is written in U.S. Crochet Terms and is a simple Chevron stitch design. Best wishes, Rhondda

  2. The pattern listed for the scarf does not make the scarf pictured. Guess I’ll figure it out on my own.

  3. Such a fantastic variety of patterns in this book. Of the ones shown, I think my favorite is Meditative Mandala though I’ve never made one.

  4. This is why I crochet. It’s relaxing. I like easier projects that are easily memorized, but still turn into lovely things.

  5. Thank you for the review, I have bought the book and also make the honeycomb blanket 🙂

  6. I would love to get this book someday, looks like lots of great projects. Love that mandala!

  7. I love the calmness from concentrating on crochet, it’s very soothing when anxious. So this book looks like it would be a great addition to the crochet book shelf 🙂

  8. Crochet is my therapy and saved my life so I love that they have this book out there

  9. This is a great book review. I love to crochet accessories for my home and I also love to crochet scarves to give away.

  10. Crochet is a THERAPY IN ITSELF, PLUS YOUR completed item gives you memories of the work you so enjoyed making it! Great patterns in this book.

  11. Crochet has always been my “go to” when feeling down or stressed so this book is great for me..

  12. Crochet is my therapy, these look like great patterns for that! Thx.

  13. Love this book.. putting it on my wish list for my birthday

  14. Hi, you are great with such comments we know what we are buying, I specially like short projects since I get bored easily. Love this book I will bought it today. You should be paid for this !! Best regards, Elda Da Fonseca

  15. This book would be great especially after working a complicated pattern. I always like to work a more relaxing pattern after a more complicated one.

  16. I think I would like this book because of the ease of the patterns. I am blind though I do some complex patterns, it would be nice to have a book of patterns that are nice but relaxing to do. I am interested in the Zinnia and the Meditative Mandala patterns to begin with.

  17. This looks great 🙂
    Because of ill health, for much of the time I’m unable to concentrate on more complex patterns, so this book looks like something I’d enjoy working through 🙂
    There really isn’t anything I find more relaxing than crocheting something uncompicated, and easy to follow 🙂

  18. Sometimes I like to crochet difficult projects to challenge myself, and sometimes I like simple projects with lots of repetitions so that I can just get in the “crochet zone” and not concentrate at all. This book would help when I want to get in the “crochet zone!”

  19. I love the idea of getting over anxiety and stress with some crafty project. It works perfectly. Combining bright colors helps me get distracted from any problem. Thank you for your review!

  20. Love the designs 🙂 Crochet is my getaway from this adult problems :p It helps me unwind <3

  21. Nice review – pillows are an easy way to update any room, and crocheting them is a nice way to try new yarns or use up leftovers. They make nice gifts for all ages.

  22. These look like great projects. I think crocheting is very calming and could be used by so many people. I find if I crochet an hour before bed, I sleep better. I really enjoy these patterns. Thank you

  23. Looks very nice. Esspecially the home decoration patterns 🙂
