Format: Paperback
I got this book hot off the press as I was inspired by a review I'd read.I have the US version 1st edition (Bed on the front- UK version has the girl on the front). I bought some yarn and got stuck in to the "Millie" cardigan.....
If you have this book and are having problems, check the errata page on the Loop website. I have marked the star rating down due to the hassle I have had with the pattern.
The styling and lovely patterns are let down by the dreadful pattern-checking on some of the patterns.Hopefully they'll have remedied it in future editions.

Format: Paperback
The patterns in this book are great - so often I end up just wanting 1 or 2 from a whole book, but I love most of these. There is everything from a dress to a corsage (and even a curtain!), and would suit intermediate to advanced. Simply the best crochet book I have bought in ages!

Cover photo misleading 7 May 2008
By MidwestMom - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has some very beautiful patterns in it. I love the way the patterns incorporate embellishments such as buttons, etc...and there is a very nice variety from wearables to items for the home. Even a doggie sweater! I am not sure how many of these I will actually make, but they are just so beautiful to look at, I enjoy just flipping through this book. There truely are some gorgeous photos. However, the reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I feel the cover photo is misleading. On the cover you see 5, possibly 6 crochet items. There is a filet pillowcase edging, 3 crochet pillows, a bedspread, and also the green pillow in back that I cannot tell if it is knit or crochet. Well, I expected the book to have patterns for these pillows....wrong! Out of these 6 handmade items on the cover there is a pattern for only 1 of them...the bedspread. So just beware, if you love the pillows like I did...forget it, you will not find those patterns in this book! Otherwise though, well done.

Quirky, yet elegant... 3 Mar. 2008
By S. Carter - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am really enjoying this book. Not only are the pictures beautiful, but the patterns are a little off-beat and unexpected, also quick and sweet. In particular, I love the baby blanket with pom-pom corners and the bobble scarf by Juju Vail, but could easily find a use for all other patterns in the book. I did have some issues making the bobble scarf. I do wish there was a site for any errata, if only to share my fixes. Despite this, it is one one of my favorite crochet books for the style, simplicity, and elegance of the patterns, much like Erika Knight's books.

Problems with pattern for Ava Shawl 12 May 2008
By CDM - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really love this book as the patterns are unusual and very inventive. The Ava Shawl is one of my favorites, so when I started it, I was very saddened to find a problem with row 3. Since the book only gives written instructions there isn't a way to look at jus the pattern and fix it.

If anyone has figured out how to fix the errors, please let me know! I'll try something else and see if the pattern works.

Not really what I expected 8 Jun. 2008
By Cherrybomb - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had hoped that this book would share some lovely updated patterns for vintage style crochet items. I expected crochet trimmed pillowcases, dresser scarves, kitschy potholders, granny squares - things with a vintage feel that have been brought into the next century.

Unfortunately, this book only partially delivers. There are a few cute purse patterns I will likely try, a scarf that looks interesting and a round sofa pillow (all featuring the bobble stitch) but the clothing featured isn't too exciting and the home section is too small.

This is the kind of book that I like to browse at the bookshop but that I ultimately don't purchase. Now that I own it, I won't bother sending it back because I might make a few gifts from it, but for those looking for a book with fresh though vintage styled projects, I would suggest you keep looking.

Frustrating Shrug Pattern 2 Oct. 2008
By A. Suave - Published on
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book because I enjoy crochet and wished to make the grey shrug. I can't look up the name of the shrug as I had to leave the unfinished sweater with an expert to figure out how to put it together. There are not enough diagrams for the average person to solve their own difficulties. The directions in general were extremely difficult to read as well. The size of the finished shrug is way smaller than what is stated in the pattern. This was not due to my crocheting tightly or the wrong hook or yarn. I used the recommended size hook and the Blue Sky Alpaca yarn suggested. Crocheter beware, beautiful pictures can turn into a nightmare with this book.
