Have you seen Linda Permann
's newest book? It's a collection of 6 bakery-inspired crochet patterns named Sugar and Spice
When Linda emailed me a review copy of the e-Book, my first thought was how delicate and beautiful the projects are. The Sugar Sparkles Shawlette
is light and airy because it's made in a light fingering weight yarn.
And, let me tell you, knitting a shawl with all of those holes would take MUCH longer than crocheting them.
The Piped Petals Cardigan
is another of my favorite projects from the book. Simple and cute. A set of fantastic buttons would really shine on this design.
The Pizzelle Beret
takes my breath away. Best. Crocheted. Beret. Ever.
... and to ensure that's not hyperbole, I looked through the first 10 pages of crochet beret patterns on Ravelry. What's hilarious is that the only other beret that caught my eye was also Linda's, the Blackberry Beret
Linda is an amazing crocheter and her instructions are fantastic. There are lots of helpful notes and guidance in her book. I highly recommend Sugar and Spice!
