What an amazing time for my friend and wonderful designer, Andee Graves. I met Andee a couple of years ago at the CGOA Conference in San Diego. We had been “internet friends”, but it was amazing to meet her in person. She’s probably one of the most talented crochet designers that I know and when she asked me to do a book review for the blog tour, “Wraps for All Seasons”, I was thrilled. (Be sure to scroll all the way down for a surprise)!
If you follow ELK Studio, you know that wraps are one of my favorite types of accessories! There is just always a look of elegance about the drape and style. You must really check out all 6 of these beautiful wraps. The only problem you’ll have is which one do you want to start first!
It’s really hard for me to choose my absolute favorite…but my eye really caught the beauty of the Summer Seaside Shawl on page 7.
I’m sure for me that it’s the elegant edging that Andee designed. It really sets the shawl off don’t you think?
If you love quick projects, check out the Sassy Spring Wrap on page 5.
Maybe you love fun Shawlettes, Andee thought about you too with the beautiful Autumn Days Shawlette you can find on page 10!
Each pattern comes with details of the yarn used in the project, how much you’ll need, the hook size needed and the finished measurement of each piece plus other great details. For those of you that don’t know Andee, she’s basically a mathematical whiz…..meaning all these projects are done in perfection! It blows my mind that she can basically write her patterns mathematically before even picking up a crochet hook!
You can order a hard copy book from Annie’s or choose to download it too. You may also buy the book from Amazon if you prefer and can download it to your kindle!
