Tasty Crochet: A Pantry Full of Patterns for 33 Tasty Treats Reviews
I just received this book last Friday and I've already made the Pumpkin Pie (I have a pumpkin fetish and have been knitting little pumpkins and dreaming of the return of my favorite season... Fall!!) The patterns are cute (as pie, of course!) and easy to follow and you can easily glam them up with special yarns. I've already bought some yummy dark red lambs wool and a frothy creamy white yarn to create a Red Velvet Cake Slice from the chocolate cake pattern. I even bought some small brown beading "nuts" to sew onto the frosting. The patterns are divided up into breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. They are great gifts for all ages and just plain fun to make. Just the idea of crocheting an asparagus stalk cracks me up!
I've casually collected food patterns for years from internet and magazines and this is the best crochet food collection I've ever seen. This book goes beyond the typical doughnut or cupcake and includes many unexpected items, like tacos and pita pockets with falafels. The details are fabulous without being overwhelmingly difficult. For example, the pizza has olives, peppers and even sauce! The salami sandwich pattern isn't just salami and bread, it's got the whole works -- cheese, lettuce and tomato. If you like crocheting food, you won't be disappointed with this book.
So lately, I have been on a crochetting food binge! I have bought patterns from Etsy as well as books and found quite a few free-bes online also.
Straight forward instructions are easy to follow. My mom and I both are able to make these - I would say skill level required is just slightly over new beginner level. The kids have enjoyed playing with the final products.
then decided I really needed my own flip-through version. It's true one can find a lot of similar patterns on the Internet, but these are a bit better, more tested and actually can help you adapt Internet patterns for consistent size. It has some tips for combining patterns and making great little washable play food items that my grandson loves. I would have given it 5 stars if it had the schematics as well as the written instructions. For those new to crochet, the illustrated stitch guides in the back would be very helpful.
This book is both adorable and useful. I definitely considered myself a beginning crocheter prior to trying any of these patterns: I had made a few baby hats, knew the basic stitches and knew how to interpret pattern abbreviations. Working through Tasty Crochet is allowing me to make cute play food items for my daughter's upcoming 2nd birthday, but it is also helping me to become better at crochet in general. The patterns are very easy to understand and, after making several of the items, I notice myself starting to generalize and predict how the next pattern will go. Most items have taken me between 30 minutes and a couple hours to complete (and I consider myself a slow crocheter and am usually multi-tasking-- also watching a movie, etc.). This is perfect for those who like to finish projects quickly or don't have the attention span for large items such as blankets or clothing. I love that I get to experiment with different yarns and colors, varying my results, and that I'm making something I know will be loved and used for years to come. More than worth the $13.59 Amazon is currently charging; it's a bargain!
I bought this book with a couple of other food related crochet books. This one has some great patterns in it. I found the strawberry to be very lifelike!! It does not call for any "seeds" on the strawberry, but that's ok the Strawberry turned out terrific!!
Love all things crochet.
