5.0 out of 5 stars Superb book - it really is everyday croceht, 26 Mar 2008
This review is from: Everyday Crochet (Paperback)
This is one of the only books that I have purchased and thought that every garment in the book was wearable not just by the young but by every age group. I am very happy with the book and it is refreshing to have patterns shaped for the curvy lady with bust shapings if desired. I have made one from the book already and will work my way through it. It really lives up to it's name of every day crochet. It is not full of impractical openwork purely decorative items but sweaters, tops and jackets that could be worn equally to work or play. Crocheting from the top down gives scope for adaptation in length of body and sleeves. The only drawback for me is the US terminology and yarns but UK equivalents can be found by tension swatching.
One of the best crochet books that I have bought.

I haven't made this one. Made a lot of the ones in the book. There is an online crochet/ knit community called Ravelry. It's free to join and there is a Doris Chan forum for Everyday Crochet where people (and Doris Chan) answer queries about her patterns. I have had questioned answered on there with helpful tips.
