3.0 out of 5 stars incomplete directions February 17, 2006
Format:Paperback
While the projects in the book may be nice and there is a pleasing variety, I was very disappointed when I went to crochet my first project and the instructions were incomplete. The leaf embroidered tassel bags has directions for the front and back but none to be found for the strap. It mentions attaching the straps but no directions on how to make. Also due to a very obvious typo with the project mesurements it is almost impossible to guess the strap instructions. Per the book the strap on the bag before felting is 25" and AFTER felting which should shrink the project the strap grows to 35".

Another error the book cover states HATS and BOWLS both plural but there is only one hat and one bowl.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Felting! January 27, 2006
Format:Paperback
This is a great starter book for the craft of felted crochet-I love the hedgehog and lamb toys and also the quiver bag. May make the flower pincushion tomorrow.

I paid way too much at a local Barn es Noble store yesterday for this, so I may have to return it and get it for less here, especially with free shipping.

Great photos and instructions, well-planned designs, yummy yarns. Useful items to make, not just pretty stuff to look at. Great book, overall.

Only wish there were MORE projects in this book. 30 projects for 22.99 is too few, when other new crochet books with more projects (ie: 40 or 50 per book) competing with this one are selling for 14.99 and up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Variety of crochet projects February 23, 2006
Format:Paperback
I bought this book for mainly one project and then was pleasantly surprised with the variety of projects. Great accessories, baby items, household items etc. NOTE: Unfortunately the one project I was interested in had a whole section of instruction omitted.

I was very excited when I found this book, as there are not too many resources for felted crochet out there. The projects are innovative, attractive, and contemporary. However, as soon as I started making the projects I discovered many problems with the book. There are significant errors and ommissions in many of the patterns, which resulted in my spending a lot of time and frustration re-calculating and deciphering how to complete the projects. The author does not use what is considered fairly standard crochet notation, and the book lacks the short, helpful directives, such as "to make the heel of slipper:" or "to make the strap:" found in most crochet instructions. Also, be ready for LOTS of double-crochet. Overall, I'd say this book has great ideas, but falls very short on project instructions.

Easy to follow instructions. Complete instructions for felting by machine and by hand. I have had the book for 2 weeks and have made 3 items with total success. Thanks for a fine pattern and insturction book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it January 16, 2006
Format:Paperback
Finally, some charming & creative crochet patterns for felting, now that the technique is no longer only the domain of knitters!

A great variety of patterns, including hats, bags (the majority of the patterns), and toys. Great information about the kinds of yarns used and it's also nice to see that not every yarn recommendation was for pricy Noro!

The only reason why I don't give this book five stars is because there are just too few patterns in this great book. Also, some of the photos are nicely composed, artsy even, but sometimes unhelpful if you want a straightforward and objective image of the project you're working on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice projects...iffy instructions December 3, 2007
By Capless
Format:Paperback
I was very happy to see a felting book for crochet with patterns that I'd actually make. I've made several already with great success especially the flowers to embellish, beaded eyeglass case, coin purse, and the pincushion and did notice a few little errors in the other instructions but as a seasoned crocheter I was able to figure my way through with little difficulty until I tried the "Scissors Case" on pg. 91. Rnd 1 of the finishing section is badly written and simply will not work out. I've been reworking this round as long as it took to make the entire case! I've looked at the Krause publications website for an errata page but none was found. I've emailed them and await their reply.
