9784529043540 cute crochet projects
this book is full of cute crochet projects, just like the title promises. it has a nice assortment of projects, with a good range in size and complexity. projects include a variety of simple but clever coaster designs, hot pads and oven mits, a tea cozy, little (and not so little) stuffed amigurumi eggs and other characters, small baskets and cups, tissue box cover and blanket with square motifs, a blanket with round motifs, covered coat hanger, welcome mat and slippers!
all written directions are in japanese, but as is the case for almost all japanese craft books, each project has a clear crochet diagram showing how many/what kind of stitches to do. this is a great book for a beginner, or intermediate crocheter, as it has projects of various levels/complexity.
