Mullett-Bowlsby (Designer Crochet) specializes in intricate, stylish crocheted garments, and his latest collection is inspired both by the draping and folding common to Japanese garment construction and his personal interest in mathematics and geometry. The focus here is on tops, including shrugs, cardigans, pullovers, and wraps, most featuring intricate, all-over lace or cabled designs. While the author is clearly inspired by forward-thinking modern fashion, he's able to translate his avant-garde tastes into wearable garments, allowing women the chance to bring something new to their wardrobes without stepping too far out of their comfort zones. Standouts include the eye-catching T-Top, which features an all-over basketweave-style woven stitch pattern; the Split Circle Wrap, which highlights a neckline that flatters most body types; and the Five Easy Pieces cardigan, constructed from five panels featuring cable and lace patterns. Many of the garments are modeled in both a size small and a size 3X, allowing crocheters to see how the finished piece looks on the body from a variety of angles (sizes range from small to 5X). Written and charted instructions are provided, and while there are a few easier projects, the majority are best suited to crocheters with intermediate to advanced skills, including knowledge of garment shaping techniques and the ability to work with complex stitch patterns. VERDICT Skilled crocheters with an interest in garment making will find flattering and attractive options in this stylish collection.
