Welcome to my Kweendom! I am honored to be a part of designer Karen McKenna's blog tour featuring her brand new book. Elegant Fashionable & Chic Accessories.
Following is my review of Karen's book and I know you will enjoy crocheting each and every elegant accessory not only for gifts as holiday season approaches but also as a treat to yourself! Speaking of treats, Karen is giving away an autographed copy of her book along with one skein of Cascade Casablanca yarn! Will you be the lucky winner? Read the details of how you can enter to win.
Accessories are among the most relaxing and fun crochet projects to make because they are usually finished in a short time, and one can never have too many accessories! Following patterns for these projects is also a fabulous way to practice and improve your crocheting skills.
Karen McKenna's new book, published by Annie's, is an excellent collection of fashion-forward designs. The cheery cover with a gorgeous model decked out in a delicious shade of red invites one inside, already enthusiastic to make each and every design in the collection.
Within the booklet, you'll find accessory patterns, for both men and women, which are cleverly inspired by the many regions of the United States such as the Pacific Northwest and the Desert Southwest. In partnership with Cascade Yarns, every set is made using their fingering-, sport- and worsted-weight yarns.
This lovely book will keep you busy all through the winter as you crochet your way through each and every fantastic design. Elegant, Fashionable, Chic Accessories to Crochet is available at retail stores and at AnniesCatalog and retails for $9.95.
