Coastal Crochet Book Review

I am a diehard beach lover. I was born on the coast of California and grew up by the beautiful San Francisco Bay. So when I read an Editorial Note on Ravelry regarding Karen Whooley's new book Coastal Crochet, I knew I needed to have it!
The note on Ravelry spoke about walking along the beach and warming your feet in the sand or feeling the cool water gently lapping against your toes -- MY HAPPY PLACE!

When I flipped through the pages of Coastal Crochet and saw the beautiful designs, I knew that Karen had captured this wonderful feeling exactly!


You can see that Karen put a lot of time and attention to detail in Coastal Crochet. Every aspect of the book has been carefully thought out and meticulously constructed, from the lovely crochet designs to the thorough instructions to the beautiful photography.

It has twelve wonderful crochet wearables, designed for sizes S through 2X. If you LOVE timeless designs that are well written, then you won't be disappointed with this book. These designs contain detailed schematics and charts and they are very clearly written. As always with her



style, fashion-wise, the book is filled with lovely wearables that have become Karen's signature. She put a lot of thought into choosing a variety of beautiful styles and colors that would appeal to many different tastes, yet still remain with the cool beachy theme of the Northwest Coastal area.

One of my favorites is the beautiful Mist Open-Work Cardigan,


 as well as the lovely Depths Side-to-Side Shawl.




But there are so many pretty crochet projects in Coastal Crochet!





Each design is created with beautiful fingering OR lace weight yarns in a variety of colors.
