Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Epstein's Knits for Barbie Doll was immensely popular with collectors of Barbie doll but left out those Barbie owners and costumers who prefer crochet to knitting. In the hands of a lesser designer, a doll's wardrobe in crochet might have been a disaster, since crocheted garments tend to be more bulky than knitted ones. Fortunately, Epstein chose fine yarns crocheted with a small hook. The enticing designs that result have a Sixties flair. There are 75 designs a few are for Barbie's boyfriend, Ken including a camel coat, a granny striped poncho, and a gorgeous wedding gown, as well as assorted accessories and props such as hats, purses, pillows, and afghans. Recommended for all public libraries.
