Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - KLIATT Review
Crochet is an easy, fun way to make many creative and unique projects. This book provides easy instructions and photos for 15 different patterns. Some of the projects are Juliette Vest, Ruby Slippers (Dorothy would've loved these!), Autumn Striped Scarf, Lacy Choker, and Flower Power Pillow. Special information such as various hook sizes, American Standard Yarn Weight System, how to read a yarn label, and abbreviations provide basic background information for the "newbie." The chapter on "Getting Started" includes detailed information about how to hold a crochet hook, do various stitches, make rows, turn chains, and increase and finish yarn projects. Kim Werker is the editor of Interweave Crochet magazine and the founder of the Crochetme.com website. Age Range: Ages 12 to adult. REVIEWER: Shirley Reis (Vol. 42, No. 1)

Gr 6 Up- Plenty of white space, wide margins, color photos and illustrations, and more than a dozen full-page pictures of girls using the finished items all add up to an excellent presentation. The lively, easy-to-read text will appeal to beginners and experienced crocheters alike. The book includes a labeled illustration of a crochet hook; discussions and charts of hook sizes and standard yarn weights; clear explanations of pattern instructions, stitches, and techniques; and more. Each project lists "Skills" (such as single crochet), "Materials," "Finished Measurements," "Gauge," and "Pattern." There are instructions for a striped scarf, brimmed hat, sunglasses case, choker, tote, fingerless mitts, pillow, etc. Back matter includes sites for yarn companies. Similar in scope to the author's Get Hooked (Watson-Guptill, 2006), Judith L. Swartz's Getting Started: Crochet (Interweave, 2006), and Susie Johns's Ready, Set, Crochet (Quayside, 2004), this title is a welcome addition.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
