Crochet beautiful home decorations in a contemporary style with these 35 patterns for every season, special occasions, holidays, and all year round.
Kate Eastwood has designed 35 colorful and natural-looking wreaths and garlands just for you, with something to suit every occasion and every place. There are garlands with flowers and foliage that won't fade after a few days, and wreaths that can be kept on display all year round, not just for the holidays. You can crochet a Heart Garland for Valentine’s Day, or an Easter Egg Wreath full of the colors of spring. In summer, a wreath covered in bright strawberries will brighten up your hallway. For fall, a ring of crocheted pumpkins will look great on your front door, and for the holiday season there’s everything from a Mistletoe Wreath to a Gingerbread Garland. If you want a make that will look good all year round, try the Bobble Bunting in strong pastels, or the Shaker Birdhouse Garland in soft, neutral shades to suit any room.

Since then she has shared her love of all things crochet on her blog, justpootling.blogspot.co.uk. Kate is the author of Crocheted Wreaths and Crocheted Home (both CICO Books), and also designs projects for lovecrochet.com and Simply Crochet magazine. She lives near Bath with her husband and their two Weimaraners.
