Today I will talk a bit about a new book by Sharon Zientara, 3 Skeins or Less: Quick Crocheted Accessories (Interweave/F+W; July 2015; $23.99),
which includes crochet designs of Kathy Merrick, Brenda K. B. Anderson, Beth Nielsen, Cristina Mershon, Terri Keller, Jessica Bolof, and Linda Skuja. Every project in this book requires 1, 2, or 3 skeins of yarn.
We all know crochet is not a fast craft, we must be patient to see the result, but if you feel antsy, that book might be of a help.
I will simply show you all the projects. Each header leads to the project on Ravelry with more details.
If you are a "chart" person like me, there is a chart, yes.
Another pretty button and I saw this one just yesterday at Joanne!
Buttons again, you can play with the color you like and wear it in different ways. I would go for the unsymmetrical look with buttons on the shoulder.
What to say, aren't we all need a few pairs of those?
Lovely gradient effect and unisex design? A few of that one as well for everybody!
You will not get bored while making this one! 9 different motifs (all charted) and an assembly diagram! So much for your creativity and your stash of yarn if you play with colors!
It's a cute one!
My favorite design in this book. I know this shape will fit me perfectly!
Design from the cover. Different look, beautiful color, embellished with beads! love it!
I've never tried Tunisian stitch! This design made me think it's time. looks very warm!
This brooch with beads is lovely.
Nice stitch here, charted.
Lovely colors in this scarf.
Quick project, makes perfect last minute gift, charted!
Another opportunity to play with colors!
Have you tried knitting socks using 5 needles? If you hated it as much I did, this might be the solution for all of us!
These are very useful, to cover your hands on a cool day! And again, no 5 knitting needles to drive you crazy!
I would say, jewelry look.
Your chance to try tapestry crochet!
Happy crocheting, my friends!
