I was so excited to be able to preview "Reversible Color Crochet" by Laurinda Reddig from Interweave (Interweave/F+W $24.99) recently and can't wait to tell you all about it!  Be sure to read through for a chance to win your own copy too, but more about that in just a moment.

This gorgeous book is full of projects that explores a new technique invented by Laurinda herself, a method which allows you to produce full color crochet imagery that is the same on both sides!

The book contains 28 reversible squares and 10 afghan projects, from quilt- like designs to fun children's afghans as well, like the one here:

I especially like how the book walks you through the process in detail, help for crocheters learning the technique.  Each step has clear diagrams, and even includes information on joining and edging your reversible squares as well.  There are sections too for basic skills like weaving in ends and joining new colors too.

This is a great book if you're ready to explore a new technique, and begin making your own reversible color projects!

Now here's the chance to win a copy of your own.  The good folks at Interweave are giving away one copy of "Reversible Color Crochet" by Laurinda Reddig from Interweave to a lucky Fiber Flux reader.

  13. Thank you for the review! It seems this book actually teaches a new (to me anyway) technique, as well as shares some lovely patterns with which to practice that technique. It would certainly make a lovely addition to any craft library for personal use, or for gift giving! I LOVE the first pattern shown, and colors it is worked in. Great book! *Keeps Fingers Crossed!*

  23. I love having the chance to learn more about the person behind the concepts. Crochet is a very personal art form to me. It is not just the idea of making something, but investing in something, putting myself into it. I get goose-bumpy when I find others that have the same philosophy. Thanks for sharing. And yes, I want the book.
