Book Review by Reneé Rodgers (www.crochetrenee.com)
If you have ever wanted to experiment with wire crochet, this book gives some excellent pointers. The project count is twelve. All of the bags are small and crocheted with 30-gauge paddle (floral) wire.
The author is quick to point out that crocheting with wire is hard on one’s hands, so she suggests using a pair of cloth garden gloves when crocheting.
The projects incorporate sequins, beads and ribbons to create lovely little purses, suitable for a night out on the town or for a little girl’s play purse. There is a section on creating linings for all of the bags, as well as tips on how to finish wire ends so that they don’t work loose or poke out.
The suggested hook for all projects is a size E (3.5mm).
This is a great guide to beginning to crochet with wire and the bonus is that you will end up with a cute bag!
