I’m so excited to kick off day one of the book tour for the Romantic Crochet book by Emma Escott (@lululoves_uk) and published by Tuva Publishing, which runs from 15th November 2020 to 15th December 2020.
The cover of Romantic Crochet shows a snapshot of the projects that the book includes and when you delve inside there are 20 possible projects to make. The pictures of the projects are clear, using soft natural colours which really help to envisage what the final product will look like. I love the beautiful photography, especially the warm, soft autumn light for the outside shoots. This definitely made me want to curl up by the fireplace inside with a hot cup of tea, and really capture the essence of the season.
Romantic Crochet is an utterly charming and delightful book and I have had a lot of fun making some of the patterns, some of which are still on my hook! I will share my finished makes with you below and post further finished items that I make to my Instagram page in the coming weeks.
The layout of the book is very clear and clean, with each project listing the materials required, the tension, gauge, abbreviations and measurements. There are some great patterns for those who are new to crochet and the crochet charts help with this a lot, but also some more challenging but equally gorgeous makes.
Romantic Crochet is a beautiful book and you can tell that Emma has put so much love and hard work into it, which really shines through. The projects are fun, and there really is something for everyone. I thoroughly recommend it and look forward to making many more of the projects.
Day two of the book tour will feature Lucy Djevdet (@craftingbylucy) and I can’t wait to see what project she has chosen to share!
A big thank you to Emma for inviting me to be a part of this and also a huge congratulations to her on her amazing book. I wish you every success!
