Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It's easy for contemporary crafters to say, "This isn't your grandma's crafting," but owing to changing trends, it may well be. This collection of crochet projects has that vibe: if your grandmother crocheted in the 1970s, you're likely to have pieces similar to these. Palanjian (former deputy editor, ReadyMade magazine) collects projects that are pretty in a retro-hipster way and generally easy enough for beginners. VERDICT Some of the projects are stunning, especially the crocheted necklaces, but others are just odd—like the crocheted net-covered river rock, which supposedly helps us remember our connection to nature. Crocheters who enjoy vintage-inspired designs may appreciate this collection.
