Vickie Howell is one of the shining stars of the craft world, both on the indie scene as well as the industry. She has her crochet hook and knitting needles on the pulse of pop culture, innovative design, and straight up classic fashion. She combines all of these into one heck of a page turner. This book is not only for crafters, it is for anyone who is into movies, film, and music. The projects are clever, easy to tackle and loaded with personality! Not to mention the pictures are a blast - great coffee table material here! Way to go, Vic!

No projects too difficult. Very wearable items, practical for my Midwest weather. Nice photos & Instruction are easy to follow and the book has a good entertainment value. I do Enjoy Vicki Howell, so maybe I'm partial, but I have purchased much worse. This was a good value and will be a go to book for when I have time to do a project to for myself

This is an excellent crochet pattern book with some innovative patterns not seen elsewhere and also not so complicated that average skilled crocheters could enjoy making the unusual items.

LOVE, Love, Love this crochet book. I'm going to make the David Cardigan for my Grandbaby, the Cameron for myself. The Heidi will have to be a gift for someone because I love pom-poms. I will probably make more of these items as well. I'm looking forward to Vickie's next book as well.
