The fall season is coming up and one of the things that makes me think of fall is wreaths. I don’t really see too many wreaths in the summer around here but when fall hits, they really start to make their debut. It seems appropriate that in light of this, I’m reviewing the book Crocheted Wreaths for the Home by Anna Nikipirowicz. Thanks to Search Press, they have provided us with a copy of the book to giveaway to one lucky winner so keep reading to learn you you can possibly win a copy for yourself.
This book was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Crocheted Wreaths has patterns for 14 different seasonal wreaths that you can crochet. You could potentially get many other wreaths by mixing and matching the components to create your own custom wreaths. Some of th wreath patterns included are:
- Valentine Wreath
- Autumn Wreath
- Berry Wreath
- Halloween Wreath
- Christmas Wreath
- Summer Wreath
- Easter Wreath
- and more.
Most of the wreaths use a premade wreath form as the base of the wreath and the crochet patterns provided are for the various components added to the wreath and assembly instructions. Each wreath pattern has a mini project that can be made with one or more components of the wreath pattern. For example, One of the pumpkins from the halloween wreath can be used to make a pumpkin pincushion and the author gives instructions for how to do that. The patterns are written in the UK terminology. The UK/US terminology conversion chart hs been included to aid those that may not be familiar working in the UK terminology.
The yarns used in the books are popular in the UK and Europe and may need to be ordered online for North American readers that want to use the exact yarns in the book. The yarn weights used range from lace to light worsted. Other yarns could be substituted if you are able to match guage or keep in mind that you may have a finished project that is much larger (or smaller) than expected if you are substituting yarn weights.
The resource section in the back of the book is helpful covering techniques used in the book like how to crochet an i-cord, crocheting with beads, crocheting with wire, blocking your pieces and more. This section is well illustrated and explained although, does not cover all the techniques in the book. There are no basic stitch demonstrations or explanations in the book so you will need to have at least an intermediate level of crochet knowledge in order to pick up this book and start working with it. There are brief written explanations of how to do some the stitches in an abbreviations section at the front of the book but this wouldn’t be enough for most beginners.
This book is suitable for intermediate to advanced level crocheters. The patterns offer a lot of variety and you can create some stunningy detailed crocheted wreaths with them. If crocheted wreaths are your thing, this resource has the patterns to provide you with a diffferent wreath for every new season. The elements of the patterns could be mixed and matched to create a wide variety of different and customized wreaths beyond those given in the book.
