3.0 out of 5 stars Not for a beginner 29 Aug 2009
This is pitched at being suitable for all skill levels but its not for a beginner. The shawls are rated from easy to hard - except there are no easy level scarves in the book. The basic directions are not easy to follow and it gives you little help to get started. That said once I got into it the scarves are very nice, quite wearable and modern enough to suit even the youngest reader. Its size makes it easy to slip into a handbag if you want to crochet out and about or even to take it with you when buying yarn. The yarns suggested are not easy to find in the UK - but thats not a fault of the book. Also UK buyers should be aware the crochet notation is the US version not the UK version. Overall a good book for those with an already good knowledge of how to crochet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid addition to your library 28 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase
Lots of good shawl designs in here - only negative is that the book is a little small (paperback novel size) so it is a little difficult to keep open while you're working on a design. Publisher take note - it is not practical to have this as a small hardback - it would have been better to be spiral bound. Otherwise you just have to photocopy the pages you need in advance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 23 Nov 2009
By Leaf
Includes patterns for 21 different shawls with difficulty rating from 1-4. There are actually no patterns rated 1, and only two rated 2 so beginners beware! Having said that, there is a section at the beginning of the book where basic notions of crochet are explained with diagrams. Of all the patterns, I would probably only make four or five of them, so it might be an idea to check out pictures of the projects first. On the whole it's a handy little book with good pictures and clear instructions.

21 crocheted shawls. mohair triangle, broomstick rectangle by Omdahl, circular spiral shawl by Omdahl, granny square that looks like a poncho to me, medallion shawl joined as you work them, elongated loop stitch shawl, rectangular 4 leaf clover shawl in 2 colors with Rowan 4-ply cotton by Kagan, ribbon shawl, star motif shawl joined at end of work, spiraled flower shawl with flower and leaf motifs and joined at end of work in Saucy sport cotton, rectangular lace shawl in Brilla, rectangular linked rings, hexagonal motif shawl (back cover) joined as you work it, triangle motif shawl (front cover) joined in the working in bamboo, mohair shawl in a loop knot pattern, triangular "box" shawl in Koigu yarn, shell stitch shawl by Doris chan inspired by a round doily, colorful triangular shawl of different sizes of mohair in circles, wrap shawl which can be tied at the ends, rectangular shawl based on Mondrian, aran shoulder length shawl with one large button. All the shawls look interesting and fun to make.
Skill level is mainly intermediate with 3 advanced and 2 very easy but nothing marked for beginners. Yarns used are on the higher end in the main. For crocheters who do shawls this is a must purchase book.Only one caveat: no hairpin lace in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars cool 24 July 2008
By Patricia R. Andersen - Published on
"Vogue" is known for, well being in "Vogue". This book has some lovely crocheted shawls you wont's be likely to find somewhere else. The "Vogue On the Go" crochet books can be a little spotty. In previous books, I have been disappointed to find some sections of the pattern do not seem to be there. But I'm happy to report that this is_not_ the case in "Crocheted Shawls". All the patterns are clear and concise. There is no grading of the pattern - beginner or intermediate, so that might be a problem for some folks. But it may allow others to stretch their crochet wings a bit, just to see what can be accomplished.
There is also no charts or symbols. This can also cause a problem for some crocheters. I do like to see charts mostly because they help me visualize how the shawl should be put together in case of multiple motifs.
I do recommend this book for intermediate and curious crocheters. I believe they will find many patterns to choose from. The jacket cover shawl is beautiful, but the looped shawl is on my works in mind list. So give it a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites! 2 Jan 2008
By TheCaity - Published on
I got this book as a gift and I'm thrilled with it. I actually like *all* of the patterns inside and I've got six of them waiting in my "to-do" drawer. The patterns are well-written and cover a wide range of skill levels, styles and tastes. Best of all, they're great for crocheters like me who are young and want to make/wear things that are age-appropriate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great patterns 28 Mar 2008
By Cyn - Published on
This book was surprisingly good. I have been disappointed by the on the go books before but I found this one had several patterns I wanted to crochet and several that were inspirational as well. There's a ton of variety in both the styles of shawl and the techniques. A beginner could find a suitable pattern but the most advanced crocheter could also find a pattern with a little challenge. Many kudos!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute little book, some useful patterns. 26 April 2010
By Emilie Johnson - Published on

This book is small and easily carried along with your work. Despite being by Vogue Knitting, it contains only crochet patterns. I was pleased that most of the projects are modern and youthful. These aren't your granny's shawls! Some shawls are for keeping warm, others for evening wear, others are just cute. I haven't completed any projects, yet, but I have started two. These projects range from easy (but not quite beginner) to moderate. I didn't see anything that I would consider difficult. Nice color pics of each projects, using the yarns specified. One broomstick crochet pattern is included, too.
