The price is right on this slim collection of 16 attractive accessories for little girls, designed in a way that manages to be both modern and vintage. The cover photo of a sweet girl in a cute turban is exactly the right introduction to the book, full of adorable faces modeling headbands, hats, cowls, and collars. The Flower Headband and Double Delight Hat are especially cute for little girls, and even tweens might like the Reversible Vintage Headband or Pom-Pom Cowl. Intermediate crocheters will speed along, and some projects may be simple enough for beginners too. Larsen’s basic crocheting instructions are passable, but not detailed enough (she never explains how to make the pom-poms that feature prominently in her designs), so rank beginners will want to start elsewhere before moving on to this book. Full-color photos. (June)

Larsen (Crochet Undercover) specializes in whimsical crocheted accessories for children, which shows in this collection aimed at girls who enjoy flowers, frills, and pompoms. The majority of the 18 patterns are for headbands and hats, which are easily customizable based on personal taste, and most feature cute embellishments such as hearts, pompoms, or flowers—details to which young people are often drawn. Many of the designs are presented in a variety of sizes; a few, like the newborn hats, are age-specific. Each pattern includes a full-page photograph of the accessory modeled by a young girl, as well as close-up pictures of any unusual or complex steps. Larsen's designs are feminine but not fussy, and the pretty enhancements add to the appeal. VERDICT These easy-to-make projects will charm children who love girly accessories, as well as tweens who are interested in crocheting their own additions.
