I wasn’t originally going to review this book on my blog, mostly because I never review hobby books, but I’ve decided to make an exception for this one. Why? Basically, Snuggle And Play Crochet is the reason I now consider myself completely addicted to crochet. There is one thing for sure: the whole slump thing at least helped me find a whole different new hobby to enjoy whenever I need a little break from reading. I even made a Ravelry account for those who crochet/knit as well: you can find me at yvo88 if you want to add me.
So, what is Snuggle And Play Crochet all about? It’s a crafts book where Carolina Guzman Benitez shares 20 different patterns to make the most adorable toys in the form of different animals or dolls. The best part is that each one has a lovey option as well, and they make the perfect gift for the little ones. I tried quite a few of the patterns myself and they are quite easy to follow even for a crochet newbie like myself. I do have to say I had to make some minor adaptions especially to the headsize of the teddybear, because I didn’t like the head-body proportion. But that is only a minor complaint to what are otherwise adorable patterns.

I already gifted two of these (the monkey and dog) and they were a huge success. The new monkey owner hasn’t been born yet, but what I can tell is that it was love at first sight between the doggie and my friend’s little girl. ❤
In short, if you like doing crochet and need a gift for a pregnant friend or young children, this book is a little goldmine. I still consider myself a crochet newbie, so I could really appreciate the helpful explanations of the different stitches and how to put the different parts together as well.
