75 Seashells, Fish, Coral & Colorful Marine Life to Knit and Crochet
St. Martin's Griffin, pub 2012
ISBN: 978-1250003089

Now that I'm living on Vancouver Island I find myself more and more interested in beachy and coastal decor, colours, and textures. Recently I came across this colourful and fun collection of knit and crochet projects that all marine themed. I especially like how projects are grouped together near the beginning of the book into collections for the beach, coral reef, and tide pool. Each pattern indicates the skill level required and has helpful stitch diagrams. The last section provides some projects. Frankly, I can't imagine making and using any of them - they are a little over the top in terms of theme - but the rest of the book is so unique that the few pages of ho-hum projects wouldn't deter me from adding this to my collection.

Skill Level: Beginner - Intermediate
