Book Description

September 1, 2006
Contemporary crochet projects for fun, fast, fashionable afghans, shoulder wraps, and baby blankets.

Throws and baby blankets are the most popular crochet projects, according to the Yarn Council of America. Beginners love them because no fitting or seaming is required, and everyone loves the look and coziness of a crocheted throw. Hooked Throws presents colorful, contemporary crochet projects for textured Afghans, lacey shoulder wraps, and cute baby blankets. The original patterns use widely available yarns including popular novelty yarns. Color photographs show the finished projects, the stitches close up, the yarn used, and how to make the crochet stitches step by step. Other features include a handy ruler inside the cover and a covered spiral binding. Hooked Throws joins an exciting new series of crochet project books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Projects February 2, 2007
Format:Spiral-bound
This book is full of beautifully photographed and well-written patterns for a variety of projects; I began two of them immediately. There is an excellent "how to" section at the back with super close-up photos and clear explanations of how to make each type of stitch, including the Tunisian stitch.

Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I am a self-taught beginner crochet. I wanted to learn some new patterns so I can create more than just scarves. I have collected a library of books already but this one was what I was looking for - the directions are clear and accurate, the photos of the stitches helpful and the patterns are not too difficult to learn, Now I can create more than scarves!

So easy! This really got me a head start on all my crocheting friends. I had 2 throws done in a couple weeks after first picking up this fabulous hobby, and both throws were from this book. Great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique Throws September 7, 2007
Format:Spiral-bound
This book is perfect for unique shawls and throws. The use of speciality yarns to will result in throws that any crocheter can be proud to display in their home or give as a gift. Although the books says it is for a beginner, the patterns seem more geared towards an advanced beginner. However, all the stitches are explained in the back of the book. One thing that is very helpful is that this book has a key that explains specific abbreviations used in the patterns and remains true to that key throughout the book. (Sadly, this is not the case in all crochet books.) The binding is wonderful because the pages will not tear out, bend, or crease. This book would be a great gift by itself. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, with graphic pictures, using higher end yarn, and not too much stress learning intricate stitches, this book is perfect.

2.0 out of 5 stars complete let down December 16, 2007
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This book fails to give complete photo's of the projects, and the directions leave much to be desired. If you are new to crochet stay away. I had bought this book based on the reviews, I am an experienced crochet artist and I was confused on the first project. these directions are not easy to follow and the book would be greatly enhanced by either diagrams or photos of the more complicated turns and ideas in the book. If you are experienced and are good at improvising you can do this book. the only good thing I can say is the spiral binding makes it easy to carry along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful August 28, 2009
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I recommend this book because the patterns are simple and the photos are complete in detail which makes it possible to count the stitches based on the photos alone. I do not agree that the yarns used are "easy to find", nor are they inexpensive. Nevertheless, if you want a finished project that looks as wonderful as the picture, purchase the correct yarn and enjoy making it.

Hooked Throws: 20 Easy Crochet Projects

This "how to" book is fantastic and very easy to read and understand! I only wish it were entirely spiral bound so it lays flat and takes up less room. Great photos in this book as well. I would easily recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm HOOKED April 28, 2008
Format:Spiral-bound
Hooked Throws: 20 Easy Crochet Projects
This is a terrific book! I too am self taught and this book was very easy to use - I've made 3 throws already and I'm working on a "baby" throw right now - the yarns they suggest are common and can be found anywhere - this one really got my creative side moving and I'm already thinking of other colors to switch out to go with other decor! The spiral book makes it easy to keep a page open while you work!
