Crochet Goddess Award - Robyn Chachula

This is my latest addition to MHB (must have books). Robyn Chachula is a crochet goddess and my hero worship is growing with this, her latest release. Below is my review on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Joy, June 10, 2013

This review is from: Blueprint Crochet Sweaters: Techniques for Custom Construction (Paperback)
This is my second favorite book by Robyn Chachula (first being TEACH YOURSELF VISUALLY). The photos are gorgeous! Again you get the symbols, photos, written instructions, and diagrams. But this book is about construction. ALL about construction. Top-down, one piece, bottom up, rounds, rows, granny motifs and a section on "unique construction". Some of her combinations are truly inspired, like a lace top with a heavy cowl collar worked as granny motifs, then joined. My favorite has to be the "Burnt Plaid Dress" worked from the bottom up to the shoulders. Yes, I said plaid! See for yourself.

Tips throughout, symbols, abbreviations and illustrations, written stitch directions all handily placed in the book. It is so well put together, but then what would you expect from a structural engineer?
Check out Robyn's blog to see what's tickling her hooks now.
