Baby and Kids Crochet Style - Jennifer Dougherty
In her latest pattern book, Jennifer Dougherty follows up on the success of Crochet Style by focusing on the theme that’s by far the most popular in her Etsy shop: kids and baby. Many of the crocheters who purchase her patterns online are photographers who use the bonnets, beanies, swaddle sacks and blankets as photography props in their newborn photo shoots. Others love to create a handmade heirloom gift for a baby shower. Jennifer’s patterns are renowned for their superior textures and intricate details, just as good as or better than what you could buy in a boutique. Twenty-five of the patterns are brand new, never before seen, including her eagerly anticipated faux bear skin nursery rug which uses a newly released silky faux fur yarn.
Readers get the same quality as they’d get with online artisan patterns, all wrapped up in a beautiful lay-flat paperback that’s a great deal at $22.99. A sampling of the patterns includes Honeycomb Cocoon or Swaddle, Borderline Car Seat Canopy Cover, Revelation Baby Bonnet and matching Revelation Wrap, Snow Flurry Slouch hat with matching sizes for “Mommy and Me” and “Sisters.” Each item comes with individual size instructions from newborn through toddler. This book has 30 patterns and 90 photos, with each pattern featuring 3 variation photos.
