Review

'Designs to fuel the crochet revolution' The author's words describing how she found existing crochet designs to be old fashioned and boring and what she is doing to change this state of affairs. She would love to inspire creativity in crocheters and this book will certainly help this aim. It contains designs and techniques showing crochet at its best with interesting profiles of the women who have contributed. She also publishes a website called CrochetMe.com. Lots of interesting projects with stitch information at the back of the book. --Meg-Online

This book is great in the way it gives so much information on how to make the patterns fit your needs. The book gives advice on how you can adapt the patterns to make a finished project which will fit you and not just the model they used in the p[ictures.

Furthermore I have found it extremely helpful in the way it suggests Substitutions for the yarn used by the designer. It tells you which kind of yarn is most suited, which yardage you'll need and the weight you need to buy. Not something I have seen in any other book.

I would highly recommend this book, also for relatively newbies in the world of crochet. It's been a great help to me and I will be making many of the patterns in it!

This book is proof that you can create a beautiful, shapely crocheted garment. There is a good collection of patterns from basic and functional to technical and arty. The instructions are very easy to follow and the essays are interesting. This book also has useful tips for learning new techniques and improving your skills.

This book is great. I only just bought it so can't comment on how easy the patterns are, but having looked through them they look reasonable for someone who has done crochet before, and are rated according to difficulty.

Particularly nice are the patterns for a crochet dress, and a fabulous circle pattern rug. All the patterns are fashionable and interesting.

I keep going through this book trying to find something to make, and then shuting it again. There are a couple of nice garments in it, but then you also get stuffed toys, stockings, bags, scarves(yawn) a choker and so on, and i don't think that any of these are particularly well designed. Even when you start to think more about the better patterns, there is nothing that you could not find elsewhere, and in truth they are a little on the dull side. Certainly it does not live up to its title; I felt uninspired by the pattern choice.

I did think this book would be better. Some patterns are lovely and others are just vile.

The advice bits of the book are useful such as blocking your work so it hangs nicely, but to be perfectly honest I think it could have been better not waffling on about the designer of the pattern, do I really care? If it's a nice pattern I can google her. Would have been better just leaving that out and putting more patterns in.

Most of the patterns would only really work on the models and others would just make you look like a crazy cat lady like the five o'clock tank pattern and the thigh high socks. I was expecting more designs like the ones I see in high street shops that I KNOW I could make myself but just can't find a pattern.

However I do really like alot of the non clothing items, such as the pots, shopping bag, art deco jewellery and rug. But most of the clothing item I would make but leave things out to make them more wearable, such the leaves sweater, would just leave out the leaves and turn into nice cropped sweater, much more 2011 and in a cream wool, wouldn't look out of place in Topshop!

Overall it is OK verging on good, but doesn't set the world on fire.

The one thing that I really love about this book is the articles interspersed with the patterns - there are several really good discussions about key issues within crochet clothing throughout - like the discussion on substituting a different weight yarn (with a handy equation too). Alongside, of course, several lovely wearable items of clothing - the babydoll dress is my personal favourite, but overall I'll be making about 5 items from this book ASAP, and a few others are possibles.
