    Edie Eckman is a crochet wizard. I crochet--I've crocheted for about 65 years, but joining motifs intimidates me and I have never been able to figure out a systematic way to get those little beasties under control. Edie shows me how in step by step procedures. What's more, these procedures are transferable to the next set of different motifs, so you can modify and adapt your joining pattern to suit your current needs without having to give up your first-born (breathe easier, Charlie!). Most of u [...]

    Connect the shapes was delivered to me on Halloween for a review. Crochet has taken a bit of a back seat for me lately, but this book got me excite to use it more in a few future projects and I am DEFINITELY going to make the skirt pattern from the book! WOOT WOOT!Before I begin though: My book got delivered on Halloween. It rained cats and dogs that day! Nobody was home to receive the book, so it had to sit outside on the front porch, where it got rained on. So it did sustain a bit of water dam [...]

    This book mostly covers connecting motifs of the same shape. If you want to join motifs of varying shapes or sizes, this doesn't really help.

    Connect the Shapes Crochet Motifs: Creative Techniques for Joining Motifs of All Shapes by Edie Eckman is the follow up to her bestselling book, Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs. The book was a pleasant surprise for me. I expected a short book with suggestions for interesting ways to join crochet motifs, and what I found was a collection of over 100 crochet motif patterns along with many tips and tricks for making more polished motifs and joins.The first part of the book, Techniques, is filled w [...]

    Connect the Shapes Crochet Motifs- Creative Techniques for Joining Motifs of All Shapes by Edie Eckman is both a crochet techniques book and a motif pattern book.In the first part of the book, the author goes over the basics about how to read international crochet notation or charted patterns and combine that with a text pattern for very clear instruction on how to work the pattern. She discusses color theory and balance, then gets into the techniques. Joining motifs, especially those with picot [...]

    I really got into making motifs a couple of years ago and then started adapting & designing some of my own so was really excited when I stumbled across this book as I was interested in expanding from embellishment to other kinds of motif-based projects of my own design. What I like about the book: - It has a spiral binding so lays flat if you ant to be able to reference it while you are working. - it contains a lot of great tips for planning the layout of a project, such as Xeroxing multiple [...]

    I love to crochet. I've been doing it since I was a little girl. But what I love even more is when a book comes around that teaches me new crochet tricks and presents new ideas - especially in a colorful, easy to read format. This book is just that.Not only does it show me 101 gorgeous granny squares (most aren't squares at all!), it shows me how to connect them in innovative and clever ways. My least favorite part of a granny square afghan is putting the thing together. This book as inspired me [...]

  • Elizabeth Kusel

    Love this book!!This book is laid out very well. It describes different ways to join, even where some make mistakes in joining. It has a lot of patterns then shows how they might be joined. Then has a list of each motif-with pics and quick links Togo directly to that page. It ends with cute projects; vest, skirt, mat, and more. Because of the way the author approaches joining, this book works well for beginners and advanced. It also will be easy to take the ideas to any project or design you wan [...]

    It isn't very often I find a crochet book I'd really like to own for myself. Well, okay, I've found plenty, as my bulging book shelves will attest to. But I loved this book. It is full of truly unique ideas, and is a spring board of inspiration. Hint, hint, if anyone wants to get me a gift.


  • Nancy

    This is a great resource book. It had a lot of interesting ideas on shapes and how to connect them. I got a lot of great ideas for projects (as if I don't have enough items on my to-make list lol).


  • Kerry

    Looks just as good as the previous one. SSSSooooo many ideas, sssssooooo little time!


  • Mintti

    Hienoja kuvioita ja yhdistelytapoja virkkuuseen. Tykkäsin, mutta tästä ei tainnut löytyä yhtään mitä haluan heti kokeilla.


  • Ellen

    Lots of good ideas with well written instructions. A winner.


  • Lil' Grogan

    Lots to get the imagination going. Love the use of different techniques in her designs. The main intro of different joining techniques was great to see collected in one place.


  • Louise Chambers

    I bought this to keep on my Kindle app on iPad as Crochet Reference.


  • Nancy

    Yup, gonna have to buy my own copy of this one.
