"I love that all of the designs are very unique! There are lightweight, lacy wraps as well as warm, cozy shawls. Such a great variety!"
author of Couture Crochet Workshop Lily Chin
"What eye candy! The very talented Tammy Hildebrand has given crocheters both a good foundation of 6 techniques as well as wearable and versatile wraps. You'll find not only the ubiquitous shawls, but ponchos and ruanas as well. There's something for everybody here. I defy you to not find something that instantly makes you want to buy this book!"
author of Convertible Crochet Doris Chan
"Tammy Hildebrand has truly found her crochet voice. In this book she brings together her breezy, happy design aesthetic, her feel for great fabrics and textures, and her joyful personality and wit to present this bouquet of projects. Tammy's wraps are just wonderful; she deftly manipulates many stitch patterns and multiple crochet techniques, including hairpin, broomstick, Tunisian, and double-ended hook, with photo tutorials that cap it all off. Brilliant!"

"If a book can radiate joy and energy, Crochet Wraps does that. You can tell that Tammy loved all of the projects she made, and is excited to share them. It's a happy feeling to leaf through the pages and discover one gorgeous project after another."

"Tammy has put together a lot of kick in a little book! It's rare to see so many different techniques all in the same place, and I think using the wrap to showcase the variety of stitches is a brilliant idea!"

"When reading the introduction, one feels that Tammy is sitting nearby, cheering us on to success! Her down-to-earth approach in the Tips and Hints section is like having a crochet friend next door to get us over the stumps and humps we crocheters inevitably encounter."

"Some of the things about this book that I like other than the variety of the patterns include: Tammy's top ten tips for crochet. Lovely photos of the crochet work. Visual index of the crochet shawls at the end of the book."
Amy Solovay
"Bottom line, I'm happy to recommend this book to other crocheters. It has become a valued part of my own crochet library. . . . I'll be keeping this one around, and will continue referring to it and benefiting from it in the future."

"This book is worth checking out not just for the techniques, but also for the gorgeous designs featured."
