Ice Box Crochet – Book Review

Ice Box Crochet eBook

“Ice Box Crochet” by Leisure Arts is filled to the brim with delightful food related items to crochet, all designed by the talented Wai Yee Ng. There are 56 patterns to be exact, including one for the fridge to keep your food! All patterns have a shopping list of all the things you’ll need, as well as instructions for any special stitches used. Have no fear, however, there’s nothing too complex. All patterns are marked as level “easy”, and the written instructions are easy to understand, so you shouldn’t have a problem making any of the patterns in this book, especially if you’ve ever done amigurumi crochet before. The “General Instructions” section in the back of the book includes the abbreviation explanations, as well as diagrams and written instructions for any special techniques you’ll need to complete your projects. It’s all very helpful information!

There are so many adorable food items to crochet in here, I could barely decide what to make first! The coffee cup seemed appropriate, since that’s the preferred way to start my day.

Although the book calls for you to use fine weight yarn (size 2), you can really use any size yarn as long as you are using an appropriate hook size to go with. Wanting to give myself a little extra challenge, I decided to make everything in size 10 crochet thread and a size 1.5mm hook. Why not, right?!

There’s lots of creative ways to use these mini-foods. You could turn Them into fun, 3D magnets for your fridge, make them into jewelry (I could totally see hamburger earrings), or just use them as play food for the kiddos and their dolls.

I even took a little inspiration from the book to make my own favorite food – Nutella! This was made by using the pattern for the BBQ sauce and altering it a little bit at the top to make the lid. I’m SO happy with how it turned out, I think I’ll turn it into a necklace.

“Ice Box Crochet” is such a fun way to combine your love of food and crochet. And, since it is available in both paperback and instant download PDF, you could be crocheting the awesome patterns in this book today! Happy hooking!
