Mish Mash 2018 CAL/KAL May Square

**NOTE** Due to an accident involving a cat my new system, which has all the items for Mish Mash on it is currently in the shop. I completely forgot to get those items off the system before turning it over for repairs. Hence why the photo is horrible and things look different. As soon as I get my system back I will update this post to contain the correct photo and make it look the way it should. At that time I will also update the page for the pattern on the site here. Till then you will just have to download the pattern’s pdf from here or Ravelry. **END NOTE**

My Review

I am completely floored with this book. I do not normally crochet a lot due to preference to knit, but this book has given me so many ideas for shawls, blankets, rugs, sweaters, the list could go on & on. As you read through the book you can tell that Sandra Eng has really taken the time to explain how to do each motif and even gives you the graphs along with the written instructions. Along with the instructions on how to read crochet charts which I still have issues with even though I learned to crochet when I was seven, lol.

The book is brimming with 100 motifs that you can mix and match to create a wonderful project. If you crochet or even if you are learning to crochet & enjoying it. This book NEEDS to be part of your crochet library. With 100 motifs you can leap from there to making all kinds of projects with them.

I received this book from Net Galley for this review.
