Im thrilled and honored to have been asked to review Rachael Oglesby's book, Crochet Boutique, from Lark Books here on the blog.  Ive been a follower of Rachael's work for some time, and she has even been featured in the last two lookbooks of The Bohemian Collective.  She is an amazing artist when it comes to crocheting!  

She recently started selling patterns to all of her designs in her etsy shop, and now you can get a whole collection of tutorials here in one beautiful book.  I was very impressed with the quality and detail put into this how-to book.  There are 30 different projects to learn, with detailed instructions on how to do each one.  In the back of the book, there are some how-to drawings on some basic stitches.  In each project she also tells you what gauge needle to use and what kind of yarn.  And the images alone are so dreamy.  This is kind of a must have for the crafty girl who wants to make herself some fun stylish things this winter, especially some christmas gifts.  This could not be a more perfect time of year!  You can find a copy of the book in Lark's online bookstore here

Here are just some snaps of a few of the beautiful projects in the book...

A while back, I had the honor of styling a shoot for Rachel's line from Softspoken, and these were some of the images I came out with.  It was such a fun shoot to style.  I love fall and winter layering.  You can see this headwrap style in two of the images below.  Rachael has all of these styles readymade for sale in her shop too!
