“Not the usual ‘how to crochet’ guide, but a survey of insights and stories revolving around crocheter experiences.”
From the Inside Flap
How people came to crochet, what they’ve made of it, what memories it has stitched into their lives, and what moments of insight and simple pleasure it’s brought them are the stories told in Hooked: A Crocheter’s Stash of Wit and Wisdom, a tribute to the age-old art, embellished with charming illustrations from vintage pattern booklets, reminding readers that with every chain a story begins.
Kari Cornell, editor of For the Love of Knitting: A Celebration of the Knitter’s Art and Knitting Yarns and Spinning Tails: A Knitter’s Stash of Wit and Wisdom, collects musings on what it means to crochet from writers such as Lily Chin, Jennifer Hansen, Karen Searle, Gwen Blakely Kinsler, Lela Nargi, Kay Dorn, Nilda Mesa, Deborah Robson, Annie Modesitt, and Linda Permann.
