Add the low, low cover price, and stand back as hordes of teens rush to Get Hooked!

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Shirley Reis
This colorful, well-illustrated book moves crochet from something your grandmother created into the funky world of teens and tweens. An introductory section features basic information: various hooks, yarn sizes, shapes, weights and construction, color, notions, reading patterns. This is followed by a detailed section on technique that includes photos and the steps necessary to begin single, double, and treble crochet, finishing off and adding different yarn. Now on to the projects! They include scarves, bracelets, bookmarks, pillows, belts, punk gloves, a purse, a beret, and even a mini-skirt. Kim Werker is a web designer, writer, crocheter and the founder and publisher of Crochet Me, a bimonthly online magazine. The 15 featured projects are sure to inspire creativity.
VOYA - Stacey Hayman
Everything old is new again, including crochet. Werker writes her book in a pleasant, conversational tone. It reads like the author is conducting a one-on-one class with just the reader in mind. Humor and plain language make complicated techniques seem easy. Simple, colorful photographs assist in making the clear explanations more complete. Photographs of finished projects modeled on real teens, cute cartoon characters, and appealing background illustrations add to the visual appeal of the title. The first chapter provides a basic overview of crochet, covering a list of required tools, choosing the right yarn for a project, and how to read any pattern. The next four chapters explain progressively complicated stitches. The final chapter contains another twelve patterns, fifteen patterns in all. A short list of books, magazines, and Web sites for further exploration is included on the last two pages. A beginning crafter could easily follow one of the simple patterns, such as the Fresh-Faced Washcloth, for a completed project in just a few days. Those with more experience will discover useful tips to add to their knowledge, and they may want to attempt a more difficult pattern, such as the felted Star Power Purse. A good choice for any library that has craft books, this title will appeal to teens as well as anyone making a gift for a teen.
Library Journal
Werker (Teach Yourself Visually Crocheting) has designed this book to entice today's preteens and teens to pick up a hook and learn to crochet. Clear close-up color photos of all basic crochet stitches plus supplementary material on reading patterns, crochet abbreviations, choosing yarns, and online resources make this a complete resource for the novice. Basic projects for a bulky scarf, a washcloth, and a headscarf get the reader started and teach techniques like working in the round, increasing, and decreasing. Once these projects are completed, the new crocheter should be able to make any of the book's 15 projects. The piece de resistance is a pleated miniskirt. A good choice for public library YA collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
