From Publishers Weekly

Apr 02, 2012 – Former ReadyMade magazine deputy editor Palajian has assembled a collection of crochet projects with a modern feel. “No longer is it only a means to make an afghan, but the essential identity of crochet has expanded,” she writes. While there’s nary an afghan to be found here, unfortunately, crochet is not as flexible a medium as knitting and sewing, and some of the projects are clunkers. Janelle Haskin’s scalloped-edge neck warmer indeed looks like the “hat that got out of control,” as the designer claims, and Brandy Velten’s hairband looks like an escapee from a low-rent production of Hair. Other projects are more pleasing, but are simple variations on ideas that have been bouncing around the Internet for months, even years: a Web of Life crochet-covered stone and Yippee Bunting. Where this book is most successful is in simple projects that showcase natural yarns in up-to-date tones, such as the Linen Lariat—a lovely necklace that resembles a strand of clovers—or the ruffled button-up pouch, which could have myriad uses. The photos are lovely and in full color, although the occasional seductive pose by a model strikes an odd note. The final shortcoming? Readers are directed to YouTube videos to learn how to crochet, although a glossary is provided.
