Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* This is smart publishing: a spiral-bound pattern and instructional book that actually lies flat, so that avid needleworkers can practice concurrently with reading instructions, and an index that is executed pictorially, in groups of motifs, so readers can quickly find the desired shape or design. Eckman (Around the Corner Crochet Borders, 2010) has mastered not only the craft of crochet but also what her audience yearns for: great color photographs coupled with written and charted directions, a true variety of choice, and some easier ways to cope with connecting dozens of baby motifs to finish a project. Also included are good how-to’s with step-by-step photographs, followed by 101 new motifs (which, except for the quick and easy, aren’t designated by level of difficulty) and 11 patterns, both wearables and home accessories. Although the designs aren’t quite up to the latest crochet revolution, Eckman can easily be forgiven in light of the treasure her book is. --Barbara Jacobs


Eckman’s (Around the Corner Crochet Borders) specialty is crochet motifs―she has a knack for turning simple stitches with colorful yarn into something fresh and contemporary. Here, she introduces a new batch of crocheted motifs as well as a variety of creative methods for joining the motifs together. Full-color photographs of each motif are included, as are written and charted directions. As a bonus, there are 12 patterns that use the motifs and connection techniques covered in the book. This isn’t for beginners―readers need to know how to crochet to get the most out of it―but Eckman may inspire some noncrocheters to learn, just so they can experiment with the techniques she describes. ­VERDICT Eckman’s eye for color and design make this an excellent addition to any crafter’s crochet collection.
