Book Review - Crocheted Scoodies by Magdalena Melzer and Anne Thiemeyer

Monday, December 19, 2016

I was provided with a copy of Crocheted Scoodies for an honest review. All opinions are those of Jessie Rayot of Jessie At Home.

Crochet Scoodies: 20 Gorgeous Hooded Scarves and Cowls to Crochet is packed full of warm goodies to keep your winter bright! Using chunky yarns, these scoodies are not only warm, but they work up fairly quickly so you can be off in fashion in no time.

From elegant and chic to sporty and fun, there's loads of variety to choose from. You're sure to find the perfect scoodie to suit your style.

The book starts with a short introduction and then moves right into the colorful patterns. There really is a nice variety of hooded cowls and scarves, in every color of the rainbow. Of course, you can use any color you like, but the colors chosen for the samples are superb. Sometimes a solid color is chosen with just a bit of a second color as an accent, sometimes a set of colors are chosen, and sometimes a variegated or textured color yarn is chosen. You can see that a lot of thought went into just the right yarn for each pattern.


Crocheted Scoodies is also a great book to learn different stitches. Nothing boring going on here! The stitch patterns are constantly changing so no 2 scoodies look the same. There are ripples and ridges, spike stitches and post stitches and more.


At the end of the book is a "How it's done" section that will teach you many of the techniques you will need to complete your projects. All with clear illustrations. After that is a section of charts to help with some of the patterns. This book has everything you need to succeed!
