4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting 13 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are some very good projects in this book, I find the modern patterns more appealing but would appreciate more in the way of sweaters and cardigans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 10 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love trying different aspects of different crafts so I knew this book would be a winner for me. My only minor critisism is that one or two of the designs are a bit dated/dowdy but I suppose if your trying to interest a wide range of practitioners not all designs are going to appeal to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars ancient to modern 27 Nov. 2013
By Karia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've recently discovered this long forgotten form of crochet. It is good to see an old technique applied to modern design and style. I look forward to many dark evenings deciphering the patterns. The book is well presented and gives clear instructions of techniques.
