Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this fresh collection of 22 patterns for garments, accessories, and home decor items, needlework designer Jensen (Knit Scarves!) combines the techniques of knitting and crocheting to take advantage of the best qualities of each. Some projects are crocheted with a touch of knitting (e.g., an afghan with a wide knitted border), but most are knitted with a touch of crochet (e.g., the dressy tank top with filet crochet yoke and bottom edging). There are full-page color photographs of each design and separate step-by-step instructions for the knitted and crocheted elements of each piece. As a means of awakening knitters to the creative possibilities of using crochet touches in their own designs and to enhance commercial patterns, this book is recommended for public libraries.

    unique and fun

    I made the mittens and hat (numerous times and adjusted size for children). They were quick, easy and versatile. The tank top was true to size and quick to make. The graph was slightly difficult to follow. The flowers were too raised. I stitched down the petal with thread. The second time I made it, I eliminated the flowers. I received many compliments on all projects. Well worth it!
