Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Leapman (Crochet with Style), whose knitwear designs have appeared widely in crocheting and knitting magazines, here presents 30 designs that include-in addition to the form-fitting wrap-top pictured on the cover-the cropped tops, halters, ponchos, string bikinis, and shawls so popular today with young crocheters. The patterns are "poster children" for how crochet or knitting designs should be presented. Take, for example, the zippered hoodie sweatshirt crocheted in cotton tape. The seven-page pattern includes color photographs of the garment from various perspectives-front, back, zipper, stitch pattern-as well as schematics, row-by-row instructions, notes, and tips for working the design. Most patterns are written for a great variety of sizes, from small to XX-large, and are suitable for the moderately experienced crocheter. Recommended for public library needlecraft collections.
