Review

Crocheters around the globe will be readying their hooks on August 7th!

Ira Rott has created some of the most adorable and cuddly crochet animal rugs, perfect children and adults alike.

There are elephants, crabs, monkeys, and more. Plus, Rott includes patterns for coordinating accessories so that you can create an adorable themed room from your very own handmade items. 

It doesn't get much better than that! I feel like many crafters feel the most accomplished when they can see the fruit of their labor - at least I do!

I've already got a few projects on my list as baby shower gifts - I can't wait to get some new yarn, too.

The pictures are fabulous and the instructions provided are crystal clear. There are written patterns as well as diagrams, for those who are more visual. 

As a bonus, I have now discovered an amazing crochet pattern designer that I will be following for new projects. Check out Rott's website here; she has a shop with quirky crochet, knit, and quilt patterns for sale (and some for free!).

You can preorder your copy of Crochet Animal Rugs on Amazon, or from your local booksellers. 


A Note From the Publisher

Ira Rott is a knitting and crochet designer based in Canada. She began learning her skill from her mother and grandmothers when she was in middle school. This wonderful tradition has been passed on from generation to generation in Ira’s family, and has become her passion through design. She loves working with yarn and other fibers to express her ideas. She sells her designs through Etsy and Ravelry, and her own website. This is her first book.


Advance Praise

"Even crocheters without kids in mind will be grabbing their hooks in order to create one of these adorable designs. Highly recommended for all crafting collections." ~Booklist, starred review
