Crochet is something that I have come to love and I always like to learn more patterns and get new ideas. I was excited to look through and find ideas and get color ideas as well as patterns.

This book of ten patterns is probably best for beginner to intermediate levels. The patterns are very basic and easy to follow, but additional photos would be helpful. There are a few macrame inspired patterns. As an advanced crocheter, I was let down by the lack of unique patterns.

I loved this little crochet book!!! The patterns are so super cute and easy to understand. There is a lot of variety with the patterns as well, from throws and afghans to cushions and baskets. I really enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend to any crochet friend!

The cover of this book is great. Many of the other 9 included projects are a bit underwhelming. As other reviewers have suggested, I'm not sure why the reader would be better off with this book than with individual patterns.

There is no introduction with tips or methodology for making certain stitches. The individual projects would also benefit from additional pictures or explanation.

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC.

This was a well written book. Nice photos and instructions.

Two things, the projects are not unique, would be nice to have charts where applicable in addition to written instructions.

Great crochet book with gifts for Christmas, special occasions, or even just to spruce up your own home. The patterns are straight forward and easy to read. This book does not go into a lot of details with how to crochet the stitches, but most people don’t need that in the book so I preferred that. I really loved the ottoman and the hanging pot hanger!

This book has some really fun and easy to follow patterns. Highlights for me are the plant cozies and the matching placemats and runners. The inclusion of additional resources at the back is a plus as well.

Nice photos and easy to follow patterns but I was hoping for some better patterns than what was offered. I feel like every single ‘home’ crochet book has the exact same mix of patterns- wall hangings, planters, blankets, cushions and baskets. There was nothing unique or original about the patterns themselves and nothing that would make me pick one of them over a free pattern I could download online. I’m sure that’s just my personal taste and plenty of people will love this book.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review.

This book was great! Super cute patterns and was so happy to see the variety of yarn utilized, and uniqueness in home decor. I highly recommend!

As this is a book - it would be nice to have an explainer on how to complete each stitch at the start of the book rather than just an explanation of the abbreviation. If you don't know the abbreviations when buying this book, you likely also don't know how to do the stitches. I've also never seen magic ring described as adjustable loop.

The patterns were relatively easy to follow but I found some parts confusing, would be nice to have some in-between step photos as well. On the whole, a nice-looking book but just as basic and as much information as the free patterns you can get online.

This collection had beautiful photos and very simple, user-friendly instructions. I was a bit under-whelmed by the simplicity of the projects as I felt like the front cover perhaps made me feel they would be a bit more adventurous, but they've still created some lovely projects and I've gifted a few of the table runners already.

This is a great book for anyone who would like to dip their toes into weaving, I chose this book for this reason as it is a craft I find interesting. The layout is very good for the learner, the text is clear and easy to understand. The projects are relatively simple, if a little basic but for the novice they are perfect. My Crocheted Home is a worthy addition to any aspiring craft library. My thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for an ARC of this book.

A nice selection of houseware crochet patterns that rely on a modern design aesthetic using Lion Brand Yarn. I especially liked the color ways author Baca featured in the photo examples. Directions appear clear for a practiced crochet enthusiast and resources are listed for those that may need additional instructions to get started in crochet basics. There are a lot of crochet books on the market, but this one stands out because these projects use traditional techniques with a modern and unique twist. There are a few macramé style items that may be inspired from the past, but the Wow Ottoman and the Triangle Wall Hanging lean more towards coastal grandmother than your average granny square.

My Crocheted Home : Hand-made baskets, pillows, throws, wall hangings, placemats, and more, This book includes 10 projects of varying difficulty and size. Aimed at beginner to intermediate. The instructions are easy to follow and photographs very good. My only slight disappointment was the projects themselves, I think I was hoping for something a bit more inspiring. But this is probably just a personal taste thing, and many other readers will love them.

I have used/followed multiple pattern books by this author and absolutely love her patterns! This specific book i was very interested in the interior decor especially the pillow and the wall hangings!

A nice collection of crochet patterns. I really like that there are plant related patterns in this book! The table runner and blanket are quite nice too. Nothing spectacular but I like the simplicity of the projects.

So many cute designs in this book! I’m midway through following the pattern for the triangle wall hanging and am so excited to be finished and be able to hang it on my wall. I fully intended to make the arrowwood throw as well as the crochet caddy. This is a great selection of diverse home creations. From what I’ve crocheted from the patterns so far and from the skimming I’ve done, the patterns are clear and easy to understand.

I do hope the final copy has some more photos or diagrams of the pieces in progress as the visual aid can help a lot.

For a person who loves to crochet and has for years, but has an issue reading patterns some of the time, this book is pretty good. I can understand the patterns. I also like how the writer has explained what stitches are counted in the pattern or not. Walks you through it especially if you're new to crochet and have basic knowledge. You should be able to follow these patterns quite easy.
Thanks NetGalley and the publisher for the advance ecopy.

Patterns are easy to follow. Photos are good. I think that the number of projects are small and they could be more interesting.

Patterns are thorough and modern with a variety of options for both beginner and intermediate. I have already started the “Granny Chevron Throw” which will be the perfect reading throw once it’s done. There are smaller projects too like the “Hanging Plant Basket” for times you just want to make a quick gift.
