Crochet is now just as popular as it was in its seventies heyday. The endless versatility of this yarn craft, coupled with the fact that the only equipment you need is a basic hook, means that crochet is gaining fans of all ages. The latest book in the popular Simple Makes series, Hook, Yarn And Crochet is a collection of 20 simple but adorable crocheted projects. The garland of sweet crocheted daisies brings a touch of the meadow into your home, whilst the hanging heart is the perfect love token to present to your beau. A lampshade decorated with dangling autumn leaves and a unique crocheted clock will light up any interior.
