    BOTTOM LINE Attempt at trendy doesn t quite come off, but a fun attitude and some very intriguing patterns made this fun to read, at least Not at all my cuppa, these designs are fairly out there , and some are plain bizzarro IMO But the author writes well, and this medium sized paperback pattern book is arranged well and photographed ditto The size and tight paperback construction make it difficult to use, but for those whose tastes reflect those of the author this would be a fun book to browse through Author has website and or blog, and appears to have quite a following, is also on Ravelry.

    I got this one from the library and immediately added it to my must buy list It s a great book filled with wonderful patterns from prominent crochet designers This is a classic book that you ll return to when you find a new, beautiful yarn and you want to know what to make with it It s a must for the crochet garment maker s library.

    mmmm, this book is like candy for the crochet person I love just browsing through the pictures and hoping that some day I ll be learned enough to be able to make some of the items in the book.

    A very nice book if looking for ideas in the world of crochet, the patterns shown, I found to be lacking It is of a introduction for specific designers than a book for workable patterns.

    A library book that I was browsing through for patterns None grabbed me and made me feel like I just had to have or use this book Love her Craftsy classes, though.

    2 great sweater patterns, the rest was ok

    I guess it s the point of the book, but too many dresses, skirts, and tops for my taste Crochet is essentially see through nothing in this about lining or additional finishing.

    A solid compilation with some cute items Watch for errata, and perhaps check the book s patterns out of Ravelry to make sure you want to make them first.

    As per crochet book rules, some inoffensive items some that I don t think would look good on anyone one I loved the concept of, but hated the execution and a couple I may attempt in the future Nothing I fell absolutely in love with, but I m picky I did like the essays and articles that came after nearly every pattern I had just mentioned to my mother that I need to relearn how to read stitch diagrams when, lo and behold Read Stitch Diagrams I was just starting to get tired of hunting through my emails and bookmarks for that Magic Circle link my sister sent me when, ta da A one page how to Stick a copy on the front of a pattern binder and hunt no A Different Kind of Post is a fabulous essay because it totally validates me sometimes desire to be a housewife A sometimes desire always foiled by my lack of romantic entanglements Oh, well Back to the salt mines I mostly make blankets because gauge doesn t really matter who cares if it s six inches longer or shorter than the pattern dictates It still covers the bed couch and keeps me warm But I m running out of room for blankets and people to give them to, so I ve been thinking that I should start expanding my repertoire Scarves are boring, I have plenty of hats I currently wear three At the same time Layered together Because it s fracking cold this year It must be time for sweaters But Gauge Have no fear A Note on Gauge is here Okay, I m weird But that s why I m awesome So the short essays and articles earned this one an extra star Would I buy it No Would I visit Perhaps But not til I catch up on everything else.

    Get out your hooks, Crochet fans Kim P Werker, editor of Interweave Crochet magazine and the founder of, has gathered together a group of hip designers and created a book of innovative and stylish designs The eighteen patterns range from bags to sweaters and leave granny squares and crocheted flowers far behind I particularly liked the looks of both the Babydoll Dress by Amy O Neill Houck and the Leaves Sweater by Annette Petavy Both designs use fine yarn to accomplish a beautiful drape In fact, there were only two designs that I saw in the entire book that used worsted weight yarns all the others use DK weight and finer One great feature, especially for a hand spinner, is the substitution section for each pattern that gives a guide to the actual size of the yarn used There is a section on techniques and a list of suppliers One of my favorite things about this book is that each designer is profiled extensively, and most of them have blogs and web sites
