Positively Crochet is great for an advanced beginner or intermediate crocheter who's looking to branch out from the usual scarves and afghans. There are a bunch of really fun projects, from eye-catching purses to funky hats to gorgeous shrugs. I've completed 3 projects so far and I'm working on a 4th now. The instructions are easy to understand and there's a handy stitch guide for the more complex patterns. All of the projects have sharp photos so you can clearly see what the finished result should look like, and there's a reference in the back to help find all the different yarns used in the book.

It's so hard to find patterns for crocheted garments that aren't boxy and unflattering. Fortunately, Mary Jane Hall's 'Positively Crochet!' offers plenty of beautiful alternatives that are fun to make (and so very stylish, too!). The best part of the book, though, is the series of uplifting messages with each pattern. These 'Words of Encouragement,' as they are called, offer inspirational tips and life lessons for the reader, making 'Positively Crochet!' more than just a set of patterns but something you will likely return to again and again. Two thumbs positively up!

The sample doesn't do this book justice! This book has a little of everything, from jewelry, to totes, to clothing. The clothes range from ladies size small up to a 2x, with a very small smattering for little girls. Project difficulty also ranges from beginner to experienced. Very glad I went ahead and bought this book :)

The sweater on the cover is only one of the lovely patterns in this book. They're fun and stylish, and would make great gifts for your loved ones at holiday time. The directions are clear and easy to understand, and the projects are great for all skill levels.

I have only been crocheting for a year and a half, and I love this book because it has SO many patterns for the beginner or advanced beginner like me! And they are all SO cute and unique. I was surprised when I bought the book at how BEAUTIFUL all of the items were! Cute purses, one-of-a-kind scarves, jackets, jewelry, sweaters, now let's see........WHAT to start on first? Top it all off with practical tips for living a happy life, and you have a formula for fun crocheting!!! One word of warning: better not loan it out to a friend....you may not get it back! :)

This is one of the best crochet books I have seen in a long time. It is filled with The most stylish designs plus the author has made this extra special by adding positive and inspirational tips and quotes throughout the book. I already have several friends who have seen my copy and they have either bought their own or are going to. There are some fabulous purse patterns in the book that I think are some of the cutest crocheted purse designs I have ever seen. The scarves are really cute, there is one with a coffee cup on it that adorable. Lots more too, like many cute sweaters, hats and some neat jewelry. I definitely do not regret buying this book. I hope the author will release another one.

This author/designer has come up with some trendy but unique projects that should make any crocheter happy. There are lots of beginner projects, as well as some more complicated intermediate patterns. Included are many quick projects I will be making for Christmas. On top of all the cool garments and accessories, I was pleasantly surprised with the words of encouragement which are a nice addition to this book. Some have deep meaning and I think they will help someone who is struggling with their life. I highly recommend this book. It was worth every penny (and more)!

If you like to crochet, you should check this out. It is an eclectic collection of all things crochet, with some designs that I absolutely loved. I actually bought it for the cover sweater. However, it even makes me want to crochet some things I would not usually bother with, just because of the choice of yarn or the way the design was handled. Some of the designs look familiar, as if I have seen them before, but it doesn't hurt to have the instructions to make them.

After purchasing Positively Crochet!, I am looking forward to winter so I get my crochet hooks out again. There are several patterns I would like to make for Christmas presents 'as well as for myself!'. I have very much enjoyed browsing through this book to see all of the designs and to read the inspirational tips. I also recommend Positively Crochet! for those crafty people on your Christmas list.
