20 to Crochet: Crocheted Flowers to Wear
This lovely book provides 20 contemporary, stylish designs for crocheted corsages – large, eye-catching floral designs that can be worn in different ways: as a brooch, buttonhole, on your wrist, shoes, bag or belt, for example. The flowers are made in a variety of sizes and styles, with different types of flower, all worked in various colours, yarns and crochet stitches. Some feature added embellishments such as buttons and beads.
Some of the flowers are based on real ones, such as the pansy, lily and hydrangea, while others, such as spectrum, roux and rainbow are fantasy flowers designed by Anna. There is more variety in that some of the flowers are quite flat, while others are distinctly 3-D, giving them added appeal. The patterns are easy to follow and there is a beautiful photograph of each one, suggesting ways of wearing them.
All of the materials used are widely available both here and in the US. Examples of the author’s work can be found on her website, www.moochka.co.uk.

Anna Nikipirowicz was taught to knit and crochet as a child by her very talented mother, but without practice, those skills were quickly forgotten. Twelve years ago she rediscovered her skills and an obsession was born. Around four years ago she started designing and selling her patterns. Her designs are also regularly featured in craft magazines. Anna is also a workshop tutor, teaching knitting and crochet across the UK. You can find Anna in her online home, which she runs with the help of her amazing partner, David, http://www.moochka.co.uk, where she shares her love of yarn, knitting, crochet, accessories and her two cats.
