Nicki Trench returns with another set of cute and easy crochet projects for your home, family, and friends, all in a pretty pastel color palette and adorned with crocheted flowers. Divided into three chapters, the book begins with Starting Out, where you will find an easy purse, a Kindle cover, and an adorable baby beanie hat, which are all perfect for first-time stitchers.
