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.

    Had some good tips and information. As for the projects, I was only interested in the hat on the cover. There were a pair of slippers I would probably try to make as well. Everything else was jewelry or stuff for the house, which I wasn't interested in. If you are, you may like this book.

    Crochet e-book not for novices.

    Being a novice, I definitely prefer the written book. Especially since my NOOK is in black and white only, the e-book is not a good selection for me.

    made the hat on the cover for a friend who has cancer.

    bought the book for the cover pattern,but there are several other patterns I will use. Good for the money.

    A nice collection of patterns

    The crocheted i-cord was of particular interest to me. Several other patterns have made it onto my list of projects for the near future. Definitely worth getting.
