The CAL Crochet A Long Test Team had the privilege of testing all 15 designs included in the Cosy Crochet Blankets to Snuggle Under book by Ana Morais Soares publishes by Tuva Publishing and available through Barnes & Noble, Amazon and other book stores and online shopping sites.
In this book you will find 15 beautifully written patterns which include comprehensive step by step photographs and charts along with the written instruction, making these patterns easy to use from beginner to advanced crocheter. The very different structure of each design will keep you interested from cover to cover of this page turner.
Included is a section covering crochet stitch terminology and how the proper technique on how to work them, yarn information, crochet hook information, and what other materials you will need or could be helpful with your crochet journey through this selection of patterns.
Twinkling Stars is a true favorite of mine and is a pleasure to work.
Daigo-ji Garden is a lovely piece that can be brought along when needing a smaller project to work on with the textured squares and innovative join.
The other 13 blankets are a true collection of stitches that create the most amazing blankets…. all with the most stunning array of photographs to guide you along the way.
