Modern Crochet is just that. Have you noticed how a lot of crochet is dated?Anybody? Well this isn’t and it’s a very different type of crochet than my past experiences. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to talk about it. It has great useful patterns that you don’t see everyday. Accessories is a perfect word that the author used and they can be made up quickly. It’s a project to project instruction and the abbreviations info is in the beginning. I love that. Followed by written instructions for how to do the stitches.
Each project has:
• what you will need
• Yarn profile (what it’s made of)
• Size, stitches
• Lindsey’s tips
• Making up (finishing the piece)
There are a lot of beautiful, colorful pictures which I like. I really can’t get enough pictures.
So I really enjoyed the 12 patterns and my favorites were the gingham bag, placemats, and the textured cloths.
I hope this was helpful.

Modern Crochet Style is full of cute and fun projects.

I particularly liked the Soak rug. It definitely had that country farmhouse feel that most people are going for style-wise these days. It definitely gave me a bunch of ideas. I also liked the leopard print cowl design. Oh look, Christmas is around the corner. Whatever will I get (do) for my sister?!?

There's something about colder weather that makes me break out my knitting needles and crochet hooks.

What a wonderful book!! After following Lindsey Newns for a few years on Instagram I was absolutely delighted when I was approved to read this.

The pictures are absolutely gorgeous and the patterns are so easy to follow they are an absolute dream, I love all of the colours used and all the other beautiful stitches. It’s an absolute must have addition to any crafters bookshelf as it’s suitable for both beginners and advanced crocheters.

This is a great crochet guide full of 15 different projects! I can't wait to jump in! The patterns are all adorable. This is one I'll return to again and again.

It is rare that I find a crochet book where I would actually want to make anything. This is the exception. There are a few patterns I will try. The instructions are very clear and for a reasonably experienced crocheter the patterns are easy to follow.

NetGalley, Anni Short

Great patterns and the text was easy to follow. I am not new to crochet but I think there are patterns in here that if you are new to crochet you would learn a lot from!

NetGalley, Victoria Bee

A fun book on crochet both little and bigger projects for your home or as gifts. Some are perfect for the left over yarn that is always hard to use.. The instructions are well illustrated and some of the articles made such as hr, bathroom mat, hair tie, 3D baskets, woven and tapestry cushions - are little different from most crochet books. There are also a collection of different yarns such as raffia, hemp used and incorporating macrame cord in fruit placement mats. There are also some traditional items such as hats, scarves stockings.
A handy book to have and could be used to teach simple crochet.

I learned how to crochet years ago and I have gotten better with each year I've been doing it. I saw this book and knew that I had to review it. It has many cute crochet patterns to be able to do and some of them are easy... I'd get it for someone else who loves to crochet.

NetGalley, Charlotte Strickland

The projects are really fun and presented in a way that I feel confident that I can make them.

NetGalley, Katie Sauer

This book is a good one if you are familiar with crochet and need a few more patterns to get inspiration projects. There is a variety of skill levels and very useful household items. I was really happy to see more than just beanies or blankets here. Definitely will be making some of these projects in the future.

NetGalley, Laney Estel

This will be a new go-to book when my friends want to me to teach them how to crochet. Simple yet beautiful projects that are well explained and detailed instructions with gorgeous pictures make this a perfect book for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. I think my fav was the Pom Pom duffel bag, but there are so many projects that I will for sure end up making for myself as well as for gifts. I like that there were detailed instructions for all the stitches as well as a breakdown of yarn weights so that if you don’t have the specific one, you can substitute and still get he desired effect.
Well done!

This crochet pattern book offers a nice selection of patterns. The patterns range from home decor items to wearable garments and accessories. The writing is accessible and easy to follow. Patterns are geared towards beginning crochet crafters, though they offer plenty of challenge for more advanced crafters.

A fun book full of fresh new ideas for every season. The book provides instructions for making scrunchies and wallhangings, and incorporates chunky yarn into projects, which is always so much fun.

NetGalley, Samantha Hehr

If you are either a beginner to crochet or an expert this is the book for you. The instructions are clear , easy to understand and the illustrations are superb. There are a wide range of interesting projects which will make the crocheteer want to pick up their crochet hook and get started.

NetGalley, Val Brown

This is a great crochet book for beginner crocheters. Everything is explained really well, and the book goes through everything step-by-step. There are nice, big color photos of the finished projects.

Some beautiful crochet makes to inspire. It is good to see more unusual ideas in the projects
presented (for example using cord to make placemats and the scrap rug). The projects have a seasonal theme and are very varied.
All the techniques are very well explained at the start of the book and the patterns are clearly presented.
I think this would enable a beginner to tackle the projects with confidence and would make a delightful present for a beginner or someone with previous crochet experience.
A delightful book!

Well I absolutely loved it. I'm a mere beginner at crochet so most of these projects, which are more intermediary, felt a little beyond my skill range, but they were still simple enough that anyone who puts in the effort can learn them, I'm sure. And the project ideas were so creative and useful- just one was purely for decorative purposes. The author does an excellent job of preparing you for the project, advising on what kind of yarn to use and providing a huge list of abbreviations for both UK and US terms. I appreciated the author's thoroughness and creative ideas for each project.

A really helpful book overall, I will be keeping it aside when my skills are up to scratch.

I'm so pleased I have been introduced to Lindsey and this beautiful book. I am someone very new to crochet, currently not really straying out of my comfort zone and using the same one stitch to crochet scarves for family! I would say Modern Crochet Style is a great introduction to crochet and the different stitches but also perfect for those experienced in crochet as it includes some really nice and modern designs. I love the light, fresh photography throughout the book. The close-ups of the stitches are extremely helpful and I love the fact the book is divided into seasons with relevant designs for each season. I'm slightly daunted by some of the patterns/designs but with the instructions laid out clearly, I feel it's something achievable. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC, it's given me the inspiration to jump in and try new crochet projects!

NetGalley, Katie Young

It warms my heart to see younger people picking up some older hobbies and this book is a great example. The author shares a varied set of projects and provides good instructions.

NetGalley, Cindi Austin

This is a lovely book for beginners and more advanced crochet enthusiasts alike. It includes easy to follow patterns for home accessories like placemats, bags, cushion and wall hanging. It also includes patterns for a scarf, scrunchie and even an eye mask.

NetGalley, Maria Smith

Modern Crochet Style is a wonderfully vibrant pattern book full of new and original pattern designs for your home and yourself. The patterns are easy enough for a beginner to tackle and the step by step instructions and wonderful pictures make each one easy to follow. Refreshingly everything in the book is useful and appealing so it is a great place to start on a crochet adventure.

NetGalley, jc Cross

Full of so many tips and techniques, I cannot wait to try the styles from Modern Crochet Style. That Gingham Bag, though. I look forward to adding these designs to my home and my closet. The patterns are explained in a way that is clear to understand, which I really appreciate.

Modern Crochet Style will revive crocheting just like macrame has come back. Lindsey Newns has created beautiful projects that are also innovative in technique. Creating scrunchies from hair bands will be easy for the beginning crocheter. Then they can move on to a granny square scarf featured on the cover. Using crochet to make a background for a woven hanging or to make a rug from a crochet/weave hybrid is ingenious.

I haven't crocheted in years and this book has me itching to dust off my hooks.

NetGalley, Michelle Ogden

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This would be a superlative choice for public or school library acquisition, maker's groups, fibrecrafts groups, activity groups, pension homes and similar. The projects range in difficulty but none are beyond the scope of a keen amateur. I was impressed how cute the hair scrunchies turned out and it's a really great pattern for using up tiny scraps of yarn which we all seem to collect.
