Quick Crochet Accessories (3 Skeins or Less)
By Sharon Zientara
Published by Interweave/F+W; $23.99 retail price
Available at Amazon and Interweave
I have yet another hot-off-the-presses crochet pattern book to review for you. Today I’ll be talking about Quick Crocheted Accessories: 3 Skeins or Less. The author is listed as Sharon Zientara, but the book is actually a collection of 24 patterns by 10 designers: Brenda K. B. Anderson, Jessica Bolof, Terri Keller, Kathy Merrick, Cristina Mershon, Beth Nielsen, Anastasia Popova, Regina Rioux, Linda Skuja, and Sharon Zientara.
You will find a variety of hats, shawls, cowls, slippers, socks, mitts, and more. The patterns also feature a variety of techniques, including lacework, slip stitch, Tunisian, motifs, beadwork, working on the bias, and techniques that achieve a knit look.
As always with books published by Interweave, the photography is exquisite, courtesy of photographer Joe Hancock. You’ll also find clear written instructions and stitch diagrams, thanks to tech editor Charles Voth. I haven’t actually made anything from this book yet, so I can’t give you any specifics about a particular pattern.
Oh, yes, we’ll also be giving away a copy of the book to one lucky random winner, so be sure to read through to the end to see how to enter the giveaway!
Now, let’s get on to what you really want to see: photos of all the designs. Each design is linked to the corresponding Ravelry pattern page for your convenience, in case you want to start a project page of your own for any of the designs.
This has been a very long post, so let’s keep the giveaway simple. To enter to win one copy of Quick Crocheted Accessories, simply leave a comment on this blog post and tell us which is your favorite design.

of course it’s the cover “Annual Wrap”. just perfect style and color.
Annular wrap. Beautiful. Thank you!
I like the Transverse Mitts but I also liked other patterns, it was hard to pick just one.
I love all the patterns, but I really love the mosaic slippers. They are so pretty.
I love to crochet accessories and this book has so many attractive designs for accessories. It is difficult to pick just one favorite, but I have to say that the Cirque Shawlette especially calls out to me.
fantastic patterns my favourites are garland wrap by Kathy Merrick Engild mitts by Linda Skuja and enmeshed cowl by Jessica Bolof.
I would love to make these and wear them.
I love the Tesselation Socks!
I really like the appearance of the Garland Wrap by Kathy Merrick. So feminine looking. Think this would be beautiful in a multitude of differen colors(solid or variegated.
Annulet Wrap is my very favorite, but there are several others I would also like to create. Looks like a fabulous book!
The Floret Cloche is my favorite. There are so many pretty patterns in this book. I would love to win it.
I like the buttons and lace cloche.
I really love the Floret Cloche by Jessica Bolof. I think it looks young, fun and happy. :’)
I think I like the Zigzag Mittens and the Transverse Mitts, as My daughter always has cold hands!
I think I’d have to start with the tessellation socks.
I really like the Honeycomb Shawlette.
My favorite is the Flourish Cloche but the Enmeshed Cowl is a very close second.
The Annulet Wrap is definitely my favorite, though I find the Honeycomb Shawlette to be unusual but fascinating!
My favorite, hands down, is the Annulet Wrap by Cristina Mershon. Loved it ever since I saw it in the Patternworks catalog.
I like the concept of the book. But I wish there were more shawls or even shrug patterns, and fewer hats and fingerless gloves. Most of the other patterns seem to qualify for “one skein or less”.
So many cute things, but the Cirque Shawlette really blows me away! Love it!!!
The Askew Scarf really caught my eye, but all of the patterns look great!
I LOVE the Honeycomb Shawlette by Regina Rioux!
There are so many wonderful designs to choose from, but I really love the Flourish Cloche by Sharon Zientara. Thanks and keep up the great work!!!
Absolutely love the Acadian Wrap! I’d be excited to win a copy of this ebook. 🙂
