Book Review | Mollie Makes Crochet

Do you want colorful illustrations? Wonderful projects that are easy to accomplish, and beautiful pictures? Then Mollie Makes Crochet is for you.


As a crocheter (and I use that title quite lightly), to me this book was refreshing and a delight.

The projects were simple and many of them were great new ideas for projects that I would never have thought of to crochet. There is so much information included. The book is easy to use because it is organized by project and then by technique, making this a great reference book. This makes the usability of the book very long lasting. The only real downside to this book is that some of the illustrations can be very confusing in terms of direction of the hook.

This would be a great addition to anyone’s crochet library both for its fun patterns and as a reference.

Mollie Makes Crochet: 20+ Cute Projects for the Home Plus Handy Tips and Tricks is published by Interweave Press and available in hardcover from for around $13.

Iʼ’m the girl who always carries a pencil pouch with 20 different colors of pens, highlighters, mechanical pencils, and a large eraser. Ever since middle school I've been fascinated with creating things with my hands. My 7 year old Christmas wish list included a diary, new tap shoes, a pink glitter tutu, and a Barbie dream house. Since those days of Ballet, Jazz, and Tap dance lessons, voice lessons, and piano lessons, I've fallen in love with memory keeping. I have boxes and boxes of “memories” that my grandmother collected over the years that have been passed down to me from my mom. Taking pictures is what our family does but they never went beyond that. We had photo albums but none of the stories that went along with those stories. 6 years ago I became obsessed with YouTube. I've learned so many things from how to apply makeup to how to knit. The one thing that changed my life was paper crafting. After watching my first card making video tutorial I was hooked and I've never looked back. As I searched for more and more information about paper crafts I was introduced to mini albums from Marion Smith, scrapbooking from Shimelle Lain, and Project Life from Ali Edwards. That has been my focus for the last 3 years. Preserving my familyʼ’s history and my new adventures of being a newlywed has fulfilled me in so many ways. It has become my creative outlet. It inspires me to live life to the fullest and appreciate the people that surround me with love and encouragement.
