Bric a Brac
I think it is WONDERFUL.
 I have looked everywhere for books explaining more stitches, and yours is the only one I've found.  The explanations and pictures are great, and make the stitches really easy to understand. Out of the books that I purchased to be used for reference material I found this one to be quite a bit more informative. ~Meghan

Crocheted Bric a Brac
This sample I found used one strand of cotton thread and a hook to make the stitches very tight.  I used a double strand of cotton thread and a larger hook to make the stitches more visible.  I will add  another photo of this desgin pattern worked in worsted weight yarn, closer to Christmas *
Row 1: Ch 4.  In 4th ch from hk, work 3 Dc.  Ch 3 and turn.
Row 2: Work 3 Dc in 1st st. Ch 3 and turn.
Repeat Row 2 for desired length.  End off and weave threads.
The original sample (in variegated yellow) worked 4 Dc into each stitch, but with the 2 strands, I only worked 3 Dc.
This pattern has a strong tendency to twist as you work it, so a good steam pressing is recommended before attaching it to a piece of fabric.
