The founder and editor of an online crochet magazine offers 15 patterns that will appeal to those new to crochet. Most of the projects are simple belts, scarves, pillows, and tiny bags. The crocheted washcloth probably won't attract many crafters, but the final project--a black beret with a red heart design--is appealing, even though it is more difficult than the others. Crotchet basics are shown primarily in helpful color photographs rather than illustrations, and the book touches on subjects that such books sometimes miss: yarn weight, edging, and custom fitting. The pop-art graphics are very cool; readers will know right away that this is not their grandmother's crochet book. A list of books and Web sites is appended. Ilene Cooper

Another thing to note is that this book provides no information on substituting yarn for each pattern, so you pretty much have to find the yarn that is called for (this was remedied in the second book, but that doesn't help me here!).
