My New Favourite Crochet Book! Vintage Style Crochet Projects by Agnieszka Strycharska
I’m very excited to share my lovely friends – Agnieszka’s crochet book! You may know Agnieszka as the blogger and crochet queen behind Niebieska Chata (Blue Cottage). A few months ago I saw some of Aga’s gorgeous pillows and blankets and I got in touch to tell her just how much I loved them and it turned out they were for sale! So I nabbed those and her brand new book! I was so excited when they all arrived. I’ve marked out a lot of pages in the book so I can make lots of crochet based christmas pressies this year.
The cushions are so colourful and have different panels back and front. I love the popcorn pillow cover, I like how it matches my lamp shade.
The pastel shade granny squares look like they would make an amazing blanket and I love the hot pink pom-pom trim ^_^
You can see a little sneaky peek of the blue and white blanket I ordered, lying on top of my favourite Greengate Dk blanket! AND! A little sneaky peek of my Love Crochet Mystery Project!
Meet the Seat Thief. Aka the Heart Handmade UK resident Monster.
This is the book!! Doesn’t it look beautiful? I absolutely adore all of Aga’s images and her daughters make fabulous models ^_^
You can see a little preview of some of the projects contained within the covers of this pretty little masterpiece!
The patterns come with yarn guides, diagram and written patterns. I can’t read the diagrams but I will learn how they work. They look relatively simple to understand.
I LOVE these coasters!! The colour possibilities are pretty endless.
I spent a lot of time in the summer, crocheting dish cloths and cleaning cloths (to try to stop our use of paper towels, it worked!) and these dish cloths with different coloured trim are made from a wonderful pattern!
I’ve always wanted to crochet some vintage hangers, I finally found some relatively cheap old wooden hangers and I plan to cover them. I absolutely love this book and I highly recommend it! You can buy it via the publisher or via Aga’s blog.
