This is one of those free coloring books online that merges two fantastic hobbies: coloring and crochet.
Crochet coloring pages are available in this gorgeous printable PDF. Discover flowers, a crochet still life, granny squares, and more in this free eBook.
From the Designer: 2 pages are both a fun coloring page and crochet pattern. They include stitch charts for crocheting up the motifs. The Flowers and Vines Coloring Page (page 5) has a quick little 3 round pattern for a fun flower. You can crochet it in 2 colors: one for the center 2 rounds and the other for the petals. The other motif is my 5 Round Gorgeous Granny Square Coloring Page (page 7) that is perfect for making up small squares for a blanket or wrap. A great scrap buster project. You can experiment with coloring the motifs on the page to decide what color combos appeal to you.
I like to use color pencils and markers to color my pages. Sometimes I combine the two to create more depth to my final image. You can see an example of that on the colored Flowers and Vines image (page 10). I used my fine point color markers to outline the interior of shapes on the crocheted motif and then filled in the center of the shapes with a similar color of pencil.
My suggestion is to print the image on 65+ pound cover card stock paper or 100+ pound Bristol Marker Paper. If you are planning on working with color pencil it is helpful to have a paper with a bit of tooth (or roughness), if you prefer coloring with markers something with a smoother surface may give you a better result. I like to have an extra piece of the same paper I’ve printed on handy to test how my colors will look before trying them on the page. This is especially handy for testing if my marker colors will feather or bleed on the page. The advantage of an eBook is you can print out the pages on different paper and experiment with different methods of coloring.
