These are the books I have been looking at this week. Crocheted Accessories by Helen Ardley and Funky Chunky Crocheted Accessories by Jan Eaton. Both are well illustrated and have lots of nice projects in. I have just taught myself to do treble crochet stitch, but I am not really ready for a pattern yet, just sample squares! I am spending more time at handicrafts and hobbies at the moment , as I am not feeling 100 per cent.
