Plain and fancy---a melody in counterpoint. In this book, the designers at The Vanessa-Ann Collection play this melody in crochet. These talented crocheters have combined fancy yarns with simple stitches and mixed intricate patterns with ordinary yarns to bring you a selection of projects to suit any mood or style. Included are designs for afghans, holiday decorations, and accessories for the home. You'll find patterns to make everything from quick-and-easy gifts to heirlooms-to-be.
