By Pauline Turner
For the first time since the late 1970s, crocheters have a number of excellent new crochet books from which to choose. This is among the best. Turner is a gifted teacher and author of books and videos on crochet, including The Technique of Crochet and Crochet: A History of the Craft Since 1850. This is a complete crochet course presented as a series of workshops that cover not only standard crochet but also those varieties of crochet that do not employ a standard crochet hook, such as Tunisian, broomstick, and hairpin crochet. Each workshop features an illustrative project, full-color illustrations of techniques, and step-by-step instructions written for a U.S. audience. Public libraries will want to add this title to their short list of essential crochet books.
