I haven’t learned tapestry of caring yarn yet, but I am intrigued. I use bobbins for graphghans but have never carried the yarn. These look like small enough of projects that I could possibly tackle them.
Thank you for your review.
A very informative review of the book, I would like to try tapestry crochet as I like the designs very much. I also like the Blending colors Hat. Thank you!
I been longing to learn how to crochet a tapestry. I sure this book will help to do it.
I like that the book tells you how to carry the unused color, and how to change colors. I would try to make the hat.
I think I’d try the Spanish tiles bag first, also. I’ve always wanted to try tapestry crochet, but have been overwhelmed by the thought of all those color changes and all that yarn-carrying! Maybe with the tutorials in this book it will be a less daunting project!
Thank you for your review of this book. Like you, I’ve been fascinated by the Mochila bags, but wasn’t sure that I could master the tapestry technique. You review of this book encouraged me to order it and learn the basics of tapestry crochet. Excited to start this new technique!
Thank you for your review of this beautiful book. The patterns are so striking. I appreciate your detailed description of the contents.
I love tapestry crochet. This sounds like a great book.
I’ll have to try this one.
The patterns look fantastic. Tapestry crochet is so beautiful and intricate.
Love the socks and bag – but I find it difficult to find patterns easy to follow for tapestry, as they normally do not have a step-by-step method and I get lost in all the voodoo of tapestry crochet, so I never go any further than just getting the patterns.
I think your two favorites are mine, as well, I love that hat!
I love the looks of these stitches. I am going to check out this book and buy it.
I would like to learn more about tapestry crochet, this book would be a great resource to have

I’ve had a request for a taoestry bag and this will be perfect to help me do just that!
This is one of the crochet types I’d love to get better at. So happy to see there is a modernized book available with tutorials and patterns.
I really like having the smaller projects to get started so you can built confidence and experience to dive into the larger ones.
These patterns are beautiful, I would love to learn how to make them.
