Simple Crocheting: A Complete How-to-Crochet Workshop with 20 Projects

Erika Knight. St. Martin's Griffin, $24.99 trade paper (144p) ISBN 978-1-250-01621-8
Renowned British craft designer Knight presents a new collection of crochet designs (not to be confused with her previous book, Simple Crochet) that are particularly well-suited to readers who'd like to learn how to crochet, but don't want to churn out unattractive items while doing so. Knight's aesthetic -- natural fibers in simple, unfussy designs – makes this collection look modern and nicely low-key. The British vibe throughout also appeals. Knight's emphasis is very much on instruction, as the first 60 pages are packed with advice on choosing yarn and hooks, then shaping the stitches needed. It's a thorough overview and far more helpful to beginners than the usual. Then come 20 designs, beginning with a simple dishcloth, and including all manner of items, from a scarf to slippers to a complex (and stunning) Asymmetrical Cardigan comprised of circle motifs worked in super-bulky yarn. Extensive charts and photographs accompany clearly written instructions. This book is a lovely addition to the crafter's shelf. Full-color photos. (June)
