Crochet Style Reviews
This are timeless pieces.
I purchased this book after finding it in the library. Has great crochet stitch patterns that can be used in different designs.
I love this book! I have crocheted since I was 14, back when nearly all patterns were for granny squares and table cloths. Crochet is often considered the step-child of knitting, and the craft and yarn companies treat it accordingly. Most "fashion" patterns for crochet are too open, not practical to actually wear. Sally Harding is one of the first to design a collection for crochet using stitches and patterns such as plaids, stripes, colorblocking, and cabling in wearable crochet "art". She also designs in Tunusian or "afghan" stitch for fair-isle and intarsia type sweaters. Although published in 1987, the designs are classic enough to be relevant for today.
I own this book already and it is a favorite of mine. It is all fashion-oriented and includes sweaters, jackets, vests and summer tops. If you want to crochet fashion items that don't look like afghans, try to get this one!
