On My Bookshelf: Quince & Co. Crochet Book no. 1
Rebecca Velasquez has designed a charming collection of crochet patterns for Quince & Co. yarns, featuring Sparrow, Chickadee, and Finch. When Rebecca asked me if I would be interested in hosting a stop on her blog tour for this e-book, I immediately said yes - these are lovely patterns featuring lovely yarns. Quince & Co. Sparrow is a lightweight, 100% organically grown linen from Belgium that gets softer with washing and wearing. Chickadee is a springy 100% American wool that comes in 41 delightful colors, and Finch is like Chickadee's younger sibling, a finer gauge in the same same palette. All are shown off beautifully in this 5 pattern collection of accessories.
The patterns include gorgeous color photos by Carrie Bostick Hoge, finished measurements, written instructions, a chart of the stitch pattern, and a list of the abbreviations used in the written instructions.
