Things you Need: Crochet, Book One by Rebecca Velasquez for Quince & Co.

Do you crochet? Do you find yourself constantly frustrated by the lack of beautiful, modern patterns? Look no further than Rebecca Velasquez's new book for Quince & Co., Crochet, Book One.

5 gorgeous patterns in some of the most fantastic yarn you'll ever lay hands on.

If you haven't ever worked with Quince & Co. yarn, you should definitely give it a try. I used Lark for my Surplus Stripes mitts, and loved every second of it. Bonus, the whole yarn line is completely affordable; Lark retails for just $6.90 per 50 gram skein, and each skein has a generous 134 yards. Okay, on to Rebecca's patterns!

Beautifully photographed, beautifully styled.

One of my favorite things about this collection is the excellent styling and photography. Simple and clean, Rebecca chose to forgo fussy backgrounds in favor of bright, springy green fields and trees. Love it! I am particularly in love with the Marigold Sweater, and would make that for myself in a second.

  1. Hard to choose, but I think I like Queen Anne's Shawl the best

  2. I have to go with the Pauline hat -- It's my mom's name and it would be really neat to knit her one!

  3. The Water Lily Mitts are stunning, not sure my crochet skills are good enough yet :(
