Crochet Inspiration

Crochet Inspiration, by Sasha Kagan

A lovely book to have for those even slightly interested or for those with years of experience in crochet. British knitwear designer Sasha Kagan supplies plenty of large samples of the crochet work in many weights and colours of yarn along with charted maps of each sample and inspiring projects further along the book. The yarns she chose to work with take great photos and are clearly of quality. I find it exciting and refreshing to have so many different types of yarn and weights featured in one book. A task not easy to do well, but Kagan does execute the book well --an example of her years of experience in design and publishing. Kagan’s work is professional and classy. Recently re-released in paperback, I highly recommend Crochet Inspiration.
