"The phrase crocheted clothing brings to mind 1970s-era granny square vests-an image that designer Hubert attempts to dispel in this collection of fashion-forward crochet patterns. Her audience is younger crocheters, particularly those with the body type to pull off some of the form-fitting garments included here. Some of the designs read 1980s a little too strongly-particularly the off-the-shoulder dress crocheted out of a teal sock yarn-but there are a few gems sprinkled in, such as the Asian-inspired Qipao tunic and the dramatic Catawba shrug. Step-by-step text instructions are included, as are charts as needed. VERDICT Younger crocheters who are curious about creating their own clothing may find something of interest here." - Library Journal
