Format: Paperback
I'm mainly a knitter, I can crochet granny squares but until I read this book I could not follow a crochet pattern or chart.

The presentation of the book is beautiful, lovely high quality paper, photographs and an elegant neutral colour palette. But I am not quite so enthusiastic about some of the projects. I think it is fair to say that although there are so many good things to say about crochet, its simplicity, the comforting association with our grannies, the way we can use up all sorts of scraps and how a piece of work is perfect to fit into a corner of our bags for long journeys, the problems arise when thinking what to make. Throws, cushions and shawls, yes but actual clothing, not so sure. Erika Knight has come up with some very innovative designs but I could not quite see me wearing the Asymmetrical Cardigan or the Edgy Scarf.

But there is still plenty of goodness in there, the Slipper Boots are fun, I rather wish I had a dog so that I could make the Rag Pet Bed and I loved the Texture Throw

Quite often when I see a new book I leap into the projects first imagining all the pretty things I will make but this book is much stronger on the technical aspects of the craft, ideal for a novice like me.

I'm a bit lazy at writing reviews but I have been so impressed by this book that I felt I had to contribute something! I have been crocheting for a year now but only have the confidence to crochet simple stuff, having bought many crochet books that leave me frustrated and questioning my intelligence :)))) Finally this book has had the opposite effect. The book is beautifully presented, the colours used and styling is just gorgeous. I think it is very clear and easy to follow and I just love the projects, they really do give you confidence to try something new and persevere, as all the information is there, nothing is assumed in terms of knowledge. Love it!

So far I've made the slipper boots, the snood and am halfway through the gloves. I love all the ideas and the classy choice of good quality, often British wool. Easy to follow patterns. I've been crocheting for about 8 months and found that I've learned new things from this book. New techniques are clearly explained and I've built my confidence.
Love this book. Modern and tasteful.

I bought this as I wanted to remind myself how to crochet having not done it since I was a child (10+ years ago). There are lots of instructions on generic crochet "patterns" so you can learn how to do a range of different crochet techniques. However, better basic crochet books are available and I found myself buying another after buying this. The actual designs however are a bit disappointing, and I can't see myself doing many, if any, of these. Overall, it's okay, but I probably wouldn't recommend it as a book to learn crochet from.

Ericka Knight has taste and a simplicity that is appealing and enduring. A lovely book. Well written and affordable to make the projects. You get hooked if you can forgive the pun!

Bought this book for a friend who has not done any crocheting before, but likes to learn it. I ended up copying all the pages for myself before giving it to her, as I liked the projects so much. The colour choices are great, as I kow my friend prefers pastell and neutral colours. Instructions are very clear with very detailed pictures about how to do the difficult bits. Very appealing pictures accompany every project. And all of them I can see using in my own house. It starts with very easy projects like oven cloths/ towels and goes over cushions, blankets, carpets, a dog bed, slippers, gloves to more complicated very lacy looking blankets, scarfs and jumpers. Particularly like the technique section that also explains felting. Will definitely work my way through all of them!

This book describes in great detail how to crochet and is most helpful. No doubt it will be referred to many times in the future.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. S. J. Currie on 6 Aug 2012
Format: Paperback
Crochet books can be a little bit hit and miss, the cover looks great but inside the projects can be a little strange. Not so with this book, great projects, very up to date and fashionable. My one criticism would be that some of the projects could have better, more detailed photos, the photography is stylish, but I need to see a close up before I commit to spending money and time on a project.
