Review

"What eye candy! The very talented Tammy Hildebrand has given crocheters both a good foundation of 6 techniques as well as wearable and versatile wraps. You'll find not only the ubiquitous shawls, but ponchos and ruanas as well. There's something for everybody here. I defy you to not find something that instantly makes you want to buy this book!" (Lily Chin, author of Couture Crochet Workshop 2014-01-01)

"Tammy Hildebrand has truly found her crochet voice. In this book she brings together her breezy, happy design aesthetic, her feel for great fabrics and textures, and her joyful personality and wit to present this bouquet of projects. Tammy's wraps are just wonderful; she deftly manipulates many stitch patterns and multiple crochet techniques, including hairpin, broomstick, Tunisian, and double-ended hook, with photo tutorials that cap it all off. Brilliant!" (Doris Chan, author of Convertible Crochet 2014-01-01)

Format: Paperback
Crochet Wraps Every Which Way by Tammy Hildebrand is a crochet pattern book featuring 18 designs for women’s wraps made with six different crochet techniques: traditional crochet, motifs, hairpin lace, broomstick lace, Tunisian crochet, and double-ended crochet.

The book opens with a friendly introduction from Tammy, along with 10 crochet tips, most of which are to help your projects look more finished. This is followed by a glossary of U.S. crochet pattern abbreviations.

The next six chapters are organized by crochet technique. Each chapter includes three patterns. Each pattern includes multiple, large photos of the wrap, shown from different angles. Several, including the Irish Jig (crocheted with hairpin lace) and the Ardeona Lace (crocheted with broomstick lace) are styled differently in each photo and can be worn around the waist as well. Each pattern also includes a skill rating and a glossary of special abbreviations.

The Essential Crochet Techniques chapter provides written instructions along with process photos for all of the major stitches and techniques used in the book, including basic crochet stitches (single, half double, double, and treble), joining motifs as you go, hairpin lace (strips and in the round), broomstick lace (flat and in the round), and the basic forward and return pass for both Tunisian and double-ended crochet.

My personal favorite patterns are the Purple Pineapples (in traditional crochet), Waiting for Willow (in motifs), Irish Jig and You are My Sunshine (in hairpin lace), Chica Mala (in broomstick lace), Cascading Rivers (in Tunisian crochet), and Zen Garden (in double-ended crochet).

Format: Paperback
I love the variety of patterns that are available in this book even though its on the one niche topic of crochet wraps.

Crochet wraps are versatile and it’s nice to see that Tammy has created many different styles here. These include:

Traditional triangular crochet shawls
Short openwork crochet shawls
Scarf-style rectangular crochet wraps
Large circle crochet shawls
Convertible crochet shawls (one turns into a skirt/ dress)
Crochet shrugs

Some additional things I liked in the book:

Tammy’s top ten tips for crochet.
Lovely photos of the crochet work.
Visual index of the crochet shawls at the end of the book.

Great design, great photography, nice book.

This book has awesome patterns at varying difficulty levels in several different styles of crochet. It has a section in the back that covers the basics of each style of crochet in case you are unfamiliar with them, too. This is truly a book that I would recommend to any crocheter.

This book definitely has garments I would like to make. It has complete instructions. There are color photographs for each project and more than one for each project so you can see the front and the back. Highly recommended.

I had been trying to locate this book of patterns for a while; should have known to look on Amazon first! An interesting mixture of crochet patterns, from casual to dressy; depends on which yarn is used or which pattern.

This book has some interesting techniques and simple/quick work-ups. I liked that the focus was narrow and in depth. I felt like I could make anything in the book with enough practice. Instructions were clear.

There are several shawl patterns using various techniques. I was surprised at the variety and thoroughness of this book. Each technique is explained and clear instructions and images are given. There is even a basic stitch guide for the beginner. This book would be an excellent choice for almost all levels of crochet. I got it when it was free, but I would gladly pay for it. I am looking forward to trying out the patterns.
