Timeless fashion and modern practicality are the starting points for Molla Mills' Crochet Crush. The 23 crochet patterns include both home decor and accessories, making everyday aesthetics accessible to everyone. The designs have been inspired by the colours of flowers, the moods of past summers, as well as Brooklyn's neighbourhoods.
Crochet's compact and sturdy fabric is best suited for wear-intensive things such as carpets and bags. This book is a collection, so you can combine patterns and vary the colours to your liking. Instead of ready-to-buy, Molla encourages her readers to make their own pieces with quality materials and enjoy the slow process. The mind calms down as soon as the first chain loop is crocheted.
