I have a fabulous review & giveaway for you today lovelies! I recently was able to check out Vintage Modern Crochet by Robyn Chachula (ISBN: 978-1632501622, Interweave F+W).

Vintage Modern Crochet is a lovely book filled with classic lacy crochet stitches and techniques that have been updated into modern styling.  The book is divided into 5 different popular types of crochet lace, each with their own intro and background information too!

Modern Vintage Crochet contains a wide variety of projects too like tunics, wraps, jewelry, cardigans, shawls, and more.  The book is photographed in full color and complete with color-coded charts to make things extra helpful.  At the end of the book each stitch used in the book both with a written explanation, plus a diagram. 

Other useful techniques like basic seaming, a metric conversion chart, and a table with all abbreviations used are included too...everything to make the projects all in one handy place!

One of my favorite pieces from the book would definitely be the the tunic shown above.  I love the classic, vintage stitches used, but it is styled in a very wearable modern look.

I was also charmed by this fabulous wrap shown below, how much fun is that red?  Check out the dimensional blossoms too...fantastic!

  1. I love the pineapple motif, so the cover cardigan is right up my alley. The variety of shawl patterns is also a plus.
