About the Author

Brett Bara was the editor of Crochet Today and continues to host the popular show Knit and Crochet Now! on public television. Previously she was Crafts Editor at Woman's Day Special Interest Publications and a writer for numerous national magazines including Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Details, Men's Health, and Prevention. She is the author of Sewing in a Straight Line: Quick and Crafty Projects You Can Make by Simply Sewing Straight(Potter, 2011)


Former Crochet Today editor Bara (Sewing in a Straight Line) curated this fine collection of crocheted accessory patterns designed for instant gratification. Crocheters will find plenty of the standard hats, mittens, and scarves, but there are also patterns for socks, jewelry, handbags, and a clever cozy for electronic devices. Several of the patterns take advantage of crochet's built-in retro feel, adding a modern spin to 1970s style; others make use of unusual objects such as key rings or novelty yarns made of linen paper to create a unique look. Written directions are provided for each pattern; charted instructions accompany the more complex projects. VERDICT Quick projects are perpetually popular with crafters, and this collection incorporates some interesting accessories that go beyond the usual hats/mittens/scarves triumvirate.
