KLIATT - KLIATT Review
Get ready for hip, edgy, flirty crochet designs that will change your mind about this craft. These projects will appeal to younger yarn workers. Eighteen fashion-forward designs have been created by up and coming designers for this book. Each designer is featured in a section called Designer in Profile. Two additional sections, Technically Speaking and Essays, provide supplemental information about the craft. Each project has a concentration rating from 1 (crochet it at a party) to 5 (Defcon 5: crochet in a quiet room). Some of the featured items are: Mini Wrap Skirt, Messenger Bag, Mesmerize Sweater (circular open weave), Thigh High Stockings, Baby Doll Dress, Style Moderne Jewelry, Icelandic Turtleneck, and Victorian Shrug and Wrap (which is totally modern). Kim Werther is the editor of Interweave Crochet magazine and the founder and creative director of the online magazine Crochetme.com, which receives more than 110,000 visits each month. Age Range: Ages 12 to adult. REVIEWER: Shirley Reis (Vol. 42, No. 1)
Library Journal

As more and more creative young DIYers take up the hook, crochet is becoming the "new knitting." Werker, the editor of Interweave Crochet magazine, founded the online magazine crochetme.com, and many of the crochet designers featured here got their start on that site. Featured are complete step-by-step instructions for 18 fashion-forward projects for crocheted clothing and accessories, plus a wealth of instructional material and inspirational designer profiles. The projects are rated in difficulty from one to four, with one being "crochet it at a party" and four meaning "crochet it in a quiet room." Recommended for public libraries.
