This book is a collection of 20 crochet motifs designed between 2008 to 2010. They have been published individually as a motif in Queenies Motif Club, which is run by The Natural Dye Studio, or in the English Country Garden CAL (crochet-a-long) run on Ravelry in 2010 or as designs used in garment patterns.
This book provides a set of motifs that you can use in your crochet projects. It is not aimed at providing a technical reference of crochet techniques as there are many resources available in print and on the internet for this purpose. However, it does include some useful explanations.
What you make with the motifs is limited only by your own imagination. So firstly decide what you are going to make with the motifs and then choose the yarn.
Amanda works exclusively in her own naturally dyed yarns, so all the swatches in this book have been crocheted using The Natural Dye Studio's yarns. You can find them in
The Natural Dye Studio's on-line shop
or at various stockists worldwide, please see the list at the end of the book.
I make pretty things exclusively using The Natural Dye Studio's luxury yarns.
The subtle plant dyed colours lend themselves to being mixed together in one big project.
I am fascinated by the gaps between the joined motifs, they often form a secondry
un-planned design that you will only discover after joining them.
I like suprises - :-)
