It doesn't specifically recommend any weight or hook. These ones I did with a 0 hook, and crochet thread(don't know the size of the thread, but the thicker one) for Christmas ornaments.

My hand for size reference. The other stars I made I did just 1 picot at the tip, instead of 3.

Pixival..those are pretty! =]  Perfect for the tree or jazzing up the gift giving, and more.  I am psyched!  I've got several skeins of a pretty blue (almost thread) yarn that will be great for this project.   Grin Grin Grin

I'll have to slip this into the Amazon order when I get the Christmas gifts scoped out!!

Thank you all for the help.  =] 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Excellent!

There are a lot of different stitches in this book, and I think it's a good way to learn them. ^_^

I'm at home and flipping through the book, and planning out how I'm going to use these motifs.

Looking at colour: the most colours used in any of the motifs is four, but only six motifs use that many.  The others run from 1-3 colours, and it's all quite adjustable.

I think I'm going to try using 2 main colours, and one colour that only comes into play when absolutely necessary.  If I position the motifs well, I think it would make a neat-looking blanket.

Now... what colours... hmm....

Just checked out the book; and tho it's nice, I'm actually more interested in the "100 flowers to knit and crochet"or the "Around the Corners" books.
I guess it just depends on what you plan to with them.
 I definitely could use some help decifering some of those tricky instructions!

I've got Around The Corner as well, and it is a very good book, I think!

The patterns are written in words and includes charts for working in the round AND for working in rows.

It is only borders, though. I might use one of them for the blanket I'm planning for this CAL... We'll see!
