A beautifully photographed collection of nicely modern crochet designs. I haven't tried any of the patterns yet, but it looks like the instructions are very clear, and many projects are photographed from a variety of angles so that you can see the detail of the pattern and the places where joining might be tricky by instruction alone. I'm pretty sure I'm going to want to buy my own copy rather than constantly renewing the library one before I start any patterns, which is the reason I haven't done any yet. ( )

"Your invitation to pretty crochet Elegance can be affordable. Simply Crochet is packed with valuable designer advice and practical, yet stylish projects for crocheters who want to make the most of their yarn stash. Inside this helpful resource, you'll find: 24 cleverly designed one-, three-, and five-ball projects, including delightful patterns for jewelry, scarves, bags, shawls, vests, cardigans, home accessories, and baby-friendly items. These patterns-from top designers including Carol Ventura, Tracie Barrett, Kristin Omdahl, and Doris Chan-will help you learn how to maximize the value of your yarn without compromising on style. Designer tips on saving money, stash busting, and helpful hints on making your yarn go the furthest in a pattern with different stitch choices and stitch patterns. Perfect for crocheters of all levels, Simply Crochet offers creative ideas and inventive solutions for making every stitch count. "--"In general crocheters tend to be much more budget conscious than knitters. We see this in their preferences for less expensive big box yarns, small projects, and practical projects for home dčor and gifts. So this book will marry the crafter on a budget to great crochet designs which has yet to be done successfully in competitive titles. It will show that just because you are on a budget it does not mean you cannot make fabulous crochet projects. Techniques in the book will be geared for the advanced beginner, but the projects will appeal to crocheters of every skill level. Simply Crochet will help crocheters get the most enjoyment out of just a few balls of yarn. It will answer questions like: "What can I make with this one beautiful ball of yarn? Can I really make shawl with only 3 balls of yarn? Can I make something with scraps from a few old projects?" The book will center around 30 projects that use 5 balls or less of yarn, divided into sections by the amount of yarn, namely 1, 3, and 5 balls. The 1 skein section will concentrate on accessories like jewelry, scarves, and bags. In the 3 skein section, the reader will find shawls, socks, home, and baby items. The final section of 5 skeins or less, will have garments such as vests, skirts, cardigans, and jackets, and larger home items. Scattered throughout the sections will be helpful tips on making your yarn stash last such as how to choose the right stitch or stitch pattern to make your ball go the furthest; ideas on how to use leftover balls of yarn in new ways; and how to recycle an old project or sweater for its yarn"--… (more)
