Editorial Reviews

Review

"I am a product of the sixties and I love crochet that expresses the individuality of the wearer. It Girl Crochet is all this and more! It offers truly unique designs in delightful colors that will set you apart from the rest. The twenty-three accessories included in the book are truly 'must have'." --Crochet Queen

"This book is a must have for any level crocheter. The patterns use basic stitches which is great for the beginner, but they also incorporate other techniques for the intermediate or more advanced crocheter. Some of these techniques include: the join as you go for motifs, beading and Tunisian crochet. There are many different projects to make and wear yourself or to give as gifts." --MyCentralJersey.com

"I especially like how the book contains a diverse mix of techniques for each stitcher's comfort level. From basic stitches to more advanced techniques like Tunisian crochet and tapestry crochet. There are even some beaded projects, which I always enjoy working on." --Fiber Flux

"You'll no doubt have a bit of difficulty choosing your first project because they're all quite amazing." --The Detroit News

"Now you can channel your inner 'it girl' with the fun and fabulous crochet patterns in this book. It Girl Crochet has a variety of easy to make projects including hats, bags, scarves, mittens and fingerless mitts, belts, shawlettes, socks and more, categorized into three themes: Romantic Art Nouveau, Retro-chic Mod, and Free-spirited Bohemian. The book also contains patterns that are for every skill level, so there is something for everyone to try." --The Stitchin' Mommy

"The patterns are all for 'must-have accessories,' and they're broken up into 3 eras: Crochet Nouveau, It's a Mod Mod World, and A Brave New Boho. But while these might sound retro or vintage, they all manage to capture the spirit of days gone by while maintaining a very modern sensibility. And I love that each pattern contains a little blurb about it's inspiration!" --Moogly

"It Girl Crochet is full of my kind of patterns!! Sharon Zientara has compiled a collection of wonderfully unique patterns that are both modern and vintage at the same time. As a designer, there are times that I look at a pattern and think 'Man! I wish I came up with that design myself!!' While looking through this book, I found myself thinking that multiple times." --Jessie at Home

"True to its title, this book is chock-full of wonderful accessories that any crocheter would love to make, and anyone would love to receive as a gift." --Crochet Guild Of America Now!

Wonderful items to crochet! Easy instructions from beginner to expert. I can't wait to get started on these projects. As always I've got more projects going at the present time so I not ready to start a new one yet. I'll try to update when I start/finish one in this book.

I was really disappointed with this book. When it came, I discovered that a number of patterns require sewing. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's disappointing when you're expecting some unique way of joining and you discover . . . sewing. If I'm going to be sewing, I'd rather just use fabric.

I made one of the hats. Almost immediately, it became clear to me that the diagram did not match the written directions. Which one was I supposed to follow? Upon close inspection of the picture, I didn't think that the display piece was done according to either the directions or the diagram. The directions/diagram gave me an idea of what I ought to shoot for and, improvising, I came up with a pretty cool hat for my mother, but no thanks to the book. I don't know if the other projects have similar consistency and clarity issues, but I think I'll be laying this one aside until I feel like improvising my own pattern again.

This book has a lot of unique and cute ideas, but if you aren't an experienced crocheter, or if you are fastidiously attached to pattern directions, this book is NOT for you. I definitely don't think that it was worth the money I payed for it.
