Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
URBAN EDGE, a Leisure Arts Publication, certainly doesn't disappoint! The garment designs--unlike most crocheted garment designs--show a lot of drape, and even show nice shaping in long sleeves. Clearly designer Shannon Mullet-Bowlsby has approached his designing task by first considering the characteristics of crocheted fabric, and then thinking--a lot--about how best to use that type of fabric in each garment.

My favorite designs are (1) Bangkok (the cover design), a tunic using a lovely diagonal triangle pattern for the textured fabric; (2) Milan, a sleeveless top with a drapey bodice and cowl neck; (3) Amsterdam, a simple, tailored, open-front vest; (4) Seattle, a drape-front vest with long panels in front for draping or tying (that can even be worn upside-down!); and (5) NYC, a strapless, body-hugging sheath dress formed from square black-and-white motifs. But I like nearly all of the designs, which are quite in line with current fashion.

Most of the designs have written-out directions for multiple sizes, usually Small to 3X. Many designs have schematic drawings showing the finished measurements, to help you achieve the correct gauge, size, and fit. There are also a few pages of general crocheting instructions included at the end. Each of the designs has multiple full-color photographs that not only show important details in close-up, but also show the garments being worn in more than one pose.

Format: Paperback
Fabulous book and will appeal to anyone, even those who pride themselves in not being very "urban".

Pros:

1. almost every pattern is very wearable by the average woman
2. easy to follow instructions
3. interesting stitch patterns
4. great use of textured stitches
5. huge range of sizes
6. good use of color
7. great variety

Cons:

1. the models look too "posed" and unnatural
2. 80's flashback dress (only those who didn't live through it could look at that photo and not flinch - every detail hurts)

For the designs, buy this book right away!

The patterns are beautiful and imaginative. The instructions are clear and well written. I am looking forward to experimenting with different color combinations. Not for amateurs.

Several great patterns. I'll be doing one as a birthday gift for a friend starting at the beginning of the year.
