What Others Are Saying
“Rachael has a fabulous sense of style that shows through not only in her crochet designs, but also in the vintage pieces she selects for her Etsy shop. Crochet has made a huge comeback in recent years, so it's a lot easier to find pieces that appeal to you than it once was. It's certainly no longer just granny squares and bulky shapeless sweaters.”
“Each of the patterns is clear and concise, with gorgeous full-color photo illustrations, and descriptions. There are projects here for every level of crocheter, and each project is labeled with one of three levels: beginner, easy, and intermediate. I loved the book...every page is chock full of beautiful colors and textures...the projects and patterns are so lovely!”
“If you're a fan of Rachael, it should come as no surprise that the projects featured within this book have a varied skill levels but use very simple, easy to acquire yarns that you can find at your local craft store. It's warm, inviting, comfortable, and effortless. All the images are gorgeous and you practically want to own every piece of crochet wear plus the outfits the models are wearing.“
“Are you looking for crochet designs that are quick to crochet yet trendy? If you like crochet accessory patterns that are simple yet fashionable, then this book is for you.”
