Brett Bara’s Crochet at Home is full of so many fun and colorful patterns. There are enough patterns to brighten up your entire home from living room to bedroom to kitchen. I spent hours just admiring each project and all the beautiful colorplay! There are seasonal wreaths, accent pieces, afghans, pillows, scrubbies, cozies, coasters, adorable nesting dolls (hint!), and so much more. And along the way there are lots of tips and tricks for choosing and working with colors.

What bigger compliment can I give a pattern than to work it up. Want to see what I’ve done?

This is from the Flowering Trivets pattern designed by Regina Rioux (p. 121) …

 … and my new pet here is from the Sleepy Kitty Doorstop pattern designed by Brenda K. B. Anderson (p. 49). I actually even had the exact colors that were noted in the pattern!
