Delicate Crochet: 23 Light and Pretty Designs for Shawls, Tops and More

By Sharon Silverman, Published by Stackpole Books


Delicate Crochet Book by Sharon Hernes Silverman, Published by Stackpole Books

Delicate Crochet Book by Sharon Hernes Silverman, Published by Stackpole Books


Important Disclosure: Most of the pages on this website are unbiased crochet book recommendations. However, this one is NOT — because I contributed 2 of the accessory patterns to this book, a necklace and a pair of ruffled fingerless gloves. These are 2 of the nicest crochet accessory patterns I have ever designed; I think they are simply gorgeous, and they are two of my most frequently-complimented crochet projects.


The other accessory patterns included in this book are also fantastic. There are some lovely scarf, cowl and shawl patterns included. So, of course, I strongly believe this book deserves its place at the top of my list of best crochet accessory pattern books.
