Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These 30 patterns are not your granny's crochet — these projects are chic and stylish, mimicking the tight look of knitting with cables, ribbing, and more with gorgeous, fashion-forward photography. Repeat after us: Crocheting is easy. Crocheting is fun. Crocheting is fast. Okay, got it? Great! Now forget everything else you ever knew about crocheting, because Cool Crochet takes the easy, fast fun of crochet and dumps the frumpy afghans, lumpy hats, and bumpy scarves of the past. With this book, top-selling author Melissa Leapman moves crochet light years ahead, into exciting designs, dazzling patterns, and sleek shapes that are sure to earn the approval of fashion police everywhere. Tanks, pullovers, cardigans, halters, a skirt, a dress, even a bikini — they're all just a hook and a dream away! And how about coordinating those new outfits with trendy purses, hats, and jewelry? Practical as well as good-looking, Cool Crochet includes valuable tips on assembling garments, plus an appendix of stitches and guidance on yarn and materials. Every fashionista will want to get her hooks into this book.

Synopsis:

Chic, stylish projects made easy through modernized techniques and illustrated in gorgeous fashion photography.

This is one of my all time favorite and most used crochet book. Melissa Leapman's designs are trendy, yet with enough classic elements that I doubt they will go out of style any time in the foreseeable future. The patterns come in a wide range of sizes, too, so everyone from petite to plus size should find the book useful.
