4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price 21 July 2011
By Charley
While this book won't win any prizes for originality, for its price it gives a great range of projects. Most are clothing and accessoires, but there are some home projects and smaller projects (like crocheted flowers) as well. The clothing projects are mostly for teens and young women, though there are some patterns for all ages and some for children. In contrast, some of the coverlets/blankets/pillow covers are fairly old-fashioned. A downside of this book is that quite a lot of the projects (I think as much as 1/4) use novelty yarn, which makes it hard or impossible to see the underlying pattern.
The patterns are written in the most concise way possible, which means you have to keep VERY good track of where you are in the pattern not to get hopelessly lost the next time you pick up your work. I haven't made anything yet from this book so I can't say whether there are any mistakes.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointingly dull 12 Dec 2008
By Fifi
100 crochet projects, only 3 of which I'd even consider making. The rest are old fashioned, boring, unflattering and uninspiring - even the yarn choices and colours are dull. Not even sure who exactly this book is aimed at -saggy crochet bikini with matching potholder and dishcloth set, anyone?

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of cool projects, most are medium to advance difficulty 26 Nov 2006
By Mindy - Published on Amazon.com
I got this book at our local library and the first thing that went through my mind was, "Finally, a book with hip patterns!" The apparel in this book are geared towards the younger crowd: they're revealing, slinky, and trendy. But because there are so many patterns, there really is something for everyone.

And that takes me to the biggest advantage of this book - the sheer number of patterns in it. I found things for children, for teens, for the home, for mothers and sisters, even for pets. Actually, I think the only thing missing were things for men. (This really isn't a problem for me since my husband hates sweaters and hats anyway.)

At first glance, the patterns look like they are medium to advanced skill levels. And here, I think is the downfall. I liked so many patterns but they looked so difficult and complicated. Maybe I am wrong but a skill level rating for each pattern would have benefited the book. That way, I don't find out half way into the project that I am in over my head.

I would say that most of the project are apparel and accessories with a few afghans and home decor items interspearsed. I have not yet tried to make anything from this book so I don't know how accurate or clear the directions are.

I do have one warning though: This book has NO DIRECTIONS for beginners. It doesn't explain how to make the stitches, how to start a chain, NOTHING. It is merely a pattern book so if you do buy it, make sure you have a reference book in case you have to look up one of the stitches.

4.0 out of 5 stars good mix 8 Jan 2007
By M. Poller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a bargain book, I highly recommend this one. Some items are taken from other sources (Twilley), but since there are 100 projects, there's enough to make the $6 a good purchase. I especially liked the entrelac skull cap, flower garden scarf, Dutch treat afghan, plum granny ripple afghan,

harlequin vest, magnificent in mesh jacket, snowflake earring, pretty posies cardi for child, stole from Braha, ribbon fringe shawl.

No schematics, no charts. Basic book. Don't need instructions for beginners as one can find them somewhere else easily.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's ok 7 Nov 2006

Most of the clothing patterns seem to be for those 20 something and younger crowd tho. Luckily, I can use most of them as my starting point and make them into something I can wear! LOL!

4.0 out of 5 stars Provider Excellent, Product Flawed 6 Jan 2009
By R. Jewell - Published on Amazon.com
The provider for this product was prompt in responding and I was greatly pleased with them. I have been crocheting for over 40 years. I have tried four of the patterns and have found errors in two of them. The publisher did not check/correct the pattern errors before printing and marketing this product.
