Since I received a couple of questions about which flowerloom I've used for my book, I thought I'd eloborate a bit on that here. I used the Hana-Ami flower loom from Clover @info_clover for all (except one) patterns and projects in the book. This loom is available across the globe, and it is a standard loom set which included several sizes and shapes of looms. Plus it is easy to make layered flowers with this set, using several sizes and shapes for one flower. Also it is very easy to secure the center of flowers: The loom set has a hole in the middle, which allows you to sew back and forth to secure any type of center you’d like. (BTW: I don’t have any commercial interest in the Hana-Ami loom!) Only for a superbulky throw in the book I've used another loom: The handmade wooden flower loom pictured right. (Which could be substituted for a circular knitting loom.) The book touches upon the different kind of looms, but does not give specific instructions for all different brands, because the basics for all looms are the same, plus there are many brands available - especially when it comes to the vintage ones. So, if you have another brand flower loom, that is no problem. The sizes might vary a bit, but I give advise in the book how to tweak the patterns a bit to make sure it fits (you might have to add or omit a couple of crochet stitches, this also depends on your choice of yarn).
Regarding the crochet hook: I’ve used a 3.5 mm hook for the 30 patterns that form the heart of the book and a DK weight yarn, the lovely #vinnisnikkim cotton. For the projects (blankets, potholder, tote bag etc.), I’ve used different yarn weights (from fingering to super bulky) and adapted the size of my hooks accordingly. That is another fun thing about flower looming: you can use all sorts or yarns and it’s rewarding to experiment with!
