I’m happy to be able to offer my second crochet pattern book, "Baby & Kids Crochet Style: 30 Patterns for Stunning Heirloom Keepsakes, Adorable Nursery Décor and Boutique-Quality Accessories". I will be happy to autograph the book if you like (see options when checking out).
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Baby & Kids Crochet Style was published in 2018 by PageStreet Publishing and includes 30 patterns with 224 pages. It is paperback and is made with premium binding which lays flat for hands free use.
The beautiful photography for the book was taken by April Patterson of AppleTree Photography. The models are my family and friends. Each pattern displays at least 2 full color photos of the pattern in use.

ABOUT THE PATTERNS:
The patterns in this book are a collection of mostly baby patterns in 3 categories; Heirloom Keepsakes & Baby Shower Gifts, Photography Props & Nursery Décor, and Big Kids & Cold Weather Accessories. The third chapter includes patterns that have sizes all the way up to large adult for the whole family. Please see photos for examples of each pattern. Most patterns in this book are written for an intermediate skill level which means you must be able to follow a written crochet pattern and know basic crochet stitches.
