Publisher Comments:

Crocheters will satisfy their hunger for unique small projects with former Crochet Today editor Brett Bara's Clever Crocheted Accessories. Brett, the former editor of Crochet Today, collected 25 delightful, practical pieces that make perfect gifts — though you may be tempted to keep them all to yourself!

The ideal curator, Brett shares a first-rate lineup of projects. Whether you are a beginner or experienced crocheter, there is something for everyone: hats and caps, including a cloche, porkpie hat, and tam; scarves, shawls, and cowls, from chunky to drapey to snug; eye-catching mittens and arm warmers; delicate lace socks and cozy man-slippers; flirty bags; and sparkly jewelry. Each piece is designed with standout details so that even the simplest pattern has that “wow” factor by showcasing lust-worthy yarn, an unexpected technique, or a fun embellishment. Techniques you'll discover include Tunisian crochet, broomstick lace, and Bruges lace.

The all-star roster of designers includes Robyn Chachula, Doris Chan, Mari Lynn Patrick, Regina Gonzalez, Drew Emborsky, Linda Permann, Kristin Omdahl, Ellen Gormley, Cal Patch, Pamela Wynne, Linda Cyr, and Vickie Howell.

Review:

"Former Crochet Today editor Bara (Sewing in a Straight Line) curated this fine collection of crocheted accessory patterns designed for instant gratification. Crocheters will find plenty of the standard hats, mittens, and scarves, but there are also patterns for socks, jewelry, handbags, and a clever cozy for electronic devices. Several of the patterns take advantage of crochet's built-in retro feel, adding a modern spin to 1970s style; others make use of unusual objects such as key rings or novelty yarns made of linen paper to create a unique look. Written directions are provided for each pattern; charted instructions accompany the more complex projects. VERDICT: Quick projects are perpetually popular with crafters, and this collection incorporates some interesting accessories that go beyond the usual hats/mittens/scarves triumvirate." Library Journal

The 25 patterns in this book range from a sparkly beaded cocktail ring (Dazzling Ring by Kazekobo) to thick, warm, cabled men’s socks (Hiking Socks by Kim Kotary) to a colorful floral motif bag (Amazing Motif Bag by Regina Rioux) - all cleverly constructed and great ways to explore crochet techniques and stitch patterns you may not be familiar with. For example, the Saturday Beret by Ellen Gormley, featured on the cover, is a visual head-turner that uses Bruges lace techniques to create a chunky texture, and the Chunky Capelet by Doris Chan employs broomstick lace. There a lot of great gift ideas here, including hats for men.
