The patterns are designed with more acrylic yarn for the winter patterns because it is wearable (does not itch or scratch) and practical for everyday wash and wear. For the summer clothing, cotton is mostly used for its absorbent qualities. All the yarn used in this book is locally produced and readily available. All patterns are illustrated for those who find diagrams easier to follow, and all pattern stitches are explained in the front section. There is something for everyone, from beginner to expert, so that every crochet moment is enjoyable and inspired!
