Book Description

May 1 2004
Hooked on Crochet offers 20 fabulous crochet projects, including hats, bags, clothing, and home accessories. If you love the look but have never crocheted, this is the book for you! First-time crocheters will learn the basic techniques, step by step, as they complete beautiful projects to wear, use, and give as gifts.

Start with a long, simple scarf made from novelty yarns. Then, move on to a throw pillow in jewel tones inspired by the fabrics of India. Make a fashion statement with a lacy tank top, a cloche-style hat, or a short cardigan in your favorite delicious shades. Try a beaded crocheted fringe for a lamp shade, crocheted trim for a hammock, and even elegant crocheted edgings for pillows, sheets, and napkins.

Whether you're new to crocheting or need a refresher course, Hooked on Crochet makes crocheting a snap.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Eschewing the afghan and doily patterns often found in crocheting books, this colorful guide offers an assortment of trendier alternatives handpicked to appeal to women in their 20s and 30s. Those new to crocheting should have no trouble mastering the first pattern (a cell phone case made with a luxurious yet hard-to-find suede yarn), and the Striped Skinny Scarf and Basic Scarf with fringe will be a breeze for beginners. The Bamboo Handle Purse and Posh Frock, on the other hand, require some sewing savvy, and the directions on how to create decorative posies and flower pins look easier than they really are. Jensen, a veteran craft and needlepoint designer, describes the basics of yarn weight, hook size and gauge in an easy-to-follow manner, and the accompanying illustrations elucidate details that are difficult to explain (such as hand and hook positioning). While her prose is not as exuberant or as playful as one would expect from a guide touting its projects as "sassy," "bold" and "hip," the book’s creative patterns and vibrant photographs more than compensate. Color photos throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Several nice scarves.... Jan. 30 2005
By Dianne Foster - Published on Amazon.com
HOOKED ON CROCHET includes many nifty projects, including a beautiful striped scarf and a granny square scarf both of which I have made or am in the process of making. I made the striped scarf in shades of purple, mauve, and lavender for my 12-year old granddaughter and she loved it. Now I'm making another one for me.

Another scarf featured in this book is constructed of a single color (lime cotton) with detail provided by the contrasting pattern created by alternating rows of single, half-double and double crochet stitches.

The book also includes the ususal impractical items like a crocheted skirt (even if you line them they sag) and a teeney-weeney bikini (the bottom will also sag and may come off in the pool if you aren't careful).

Jensen's book includes a nice discussion on hooks and yarn types the crocheter will find useful, as well as some basic stitch instructions and a brief digression in an appendix on 'instructions for lefties'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice projects Jan. 4 2005
By Bonnie - Published on Amazon.com
I like the book immediately after browsing through Hip to Crochet & this one. "Hip" is also good but has more patterns on garments which I think look bulky but they have a very nice circular shawl pattern. Like this book better as the step by step drawings are clear and patterns interesting, esp the sweet top in the book. But the last 2 projects are not that interesting, it imitates macrame - cover for a lamp, edgings for hammock. But I hope the author will come out with more books & patterns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall well done Jan. 28 2005
By Kristie Haynes - Published on Amazon.com
When I first wrote a review for this book I was kind of skeptical. Now that i have owned it for a while and completed a couple of the projects I am editing my review because I like it more than I thought! I made the skirt from page 114 and it is my favorite thing I've ever crocheted. Candi is great at giving precise instructions, and the designs can be easily modified.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best beginner book! May 28 2006
By C. Gallivan - Published on Amazon.com
I just started crocheting this year, and puchased a number of books. This one turned out to be the best beginner book of all of them. There are some patterns that I'm not ready to make, but the ones I did make were very easy to understand, and turned out quite well. I recently read something on the author, Candi Jensen, and she said that she had written it for the beginner. It shows! Fun, fresh and varried, her patterns are fun to do, easy to modify and make your own, and make a gift-quality product with little or no experience. I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Aug. 23 2006
By Capless - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really nice CROCHET patterns for a change! The instructions are clear and the diagrams are very helpful. I especially like that the pictures show the item as it's being used not draped overe a chair. My daughter is 19 and the garments are more geared to her taste (and size). She has 3 projects lined up for me already. The only slightly negative comment is that the lovely yarns used are usually only found in specialty yarn shops or online and they are a bit pricy. I'm not new to crochet so I'll be able to find subs but a beginner might have a little trouble.
