Library Journal
Austenmania shows no signs of slowing down, and veteran crochet designer Horozewski, who specializes in literature-inspired designs, presents a collection of Regency-inspired crochet patterns. Each of the seven chapters focuses on a specific inspiration (e.g., love) and begins with a vignette featuring Austen's heroines; trivia quizzes are sprinkled throughout. The designs, which are romantic enough for the most ardent of Austenites but modern enough for everyday wear or use, are suitable for crocheters of a variety of skill levels, and written directions are provided for all designs, with charts for the more complex items.

    Fun book

    I bought the paperback of this before I got my Nook. Can't wait to try many of the patterns. Mainly reviewing because I wanted to note for others interested that the clothing patterns do go up to an equivelant of a women's 1x/2x (18/20). Something I look for in reviews before buying and rarely find.

    Adorable Patterns

    When I saw this book I just had to have it. I am an avid (perhaps rabid) Janeite and I am always looking for crochet patterns that are modern but sophisticated. The patterns look great and the bantering dialogue of having all of Jane Austen's Heroines in the room with her as she writes is charming. However I can only give this book four stars because there are some mistakes. Edward Ferrars is reffered to as Ferrar and the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley was reffered to as the 1995 version. The author also commented on Greg Wise from the 1995 version of Sense and Sensibility as Grey Wise. I love the style of this book and the patterns, and it was certainly worth buying, but I am saddened that these errors were not fixed. That said, I can't wait to try these patterns while watching Austen movies!

    Lovely Book

    This is a lovely book. Very well put together and I enjoyed reading the accompanying facts with the designs/patterns. I'm not sure how many of the apparel designs I would actually make (not many would flatter my bodacious body) but I think the author and publisher did a great job putting it together. Even if you didn't make a single thing out of this book you would enjoy it. Don't get me wrong. Even if you don't have a svelte body, you could make and wear many of the things in this beautiful book.

    I especially appreciate the fact that it was available for my nook.

    I love the feminine designs in this book!  The instructions, mat

    I love the feminine designs in this book!  The instructions, material requirements, and skill levels are all so very clear.  I'm not a Jane Austen fan (gasp!) but even I enjoyed the literary tidbits.

    Best Crochet Book!

    This is the best crochet book I've ever owned. The garments, styling, photography....all stunning (at least in my taste/opinion). A wide variety of projects to suit everyone from women, men, teens, infant & children, home decor, accessories, etc....along with stitch charts and schematics for every pattern that should have them - win win! There is certainly something that you will like in here, even if you are not familiar with Jane Austen. I wish they made more crochet books like this one. It's too fun!
