About the Author:

JEAN LEINHAUSER is the founder of Leisure Arts and The American School of Needlework. She was the editor Crochet! Magazine and is the co-owner of Crochet Partners, the oldest internet crochet discussion group

RITA WEISS is an author, designer, and teacher who was formerly the executive Vice-President of The American School of Needlework. She is the former president of the Crochet Guild of America, having served for three terms.

From Booklist:

With today’s ever-rising cry for do-it-yourself how-to books, many manuals simply repeat the tried-and-true. But the authors who demonstrate true originality and a spirit of innovation deserve attention. Two well-known designers have done avid stitchers a favor by presenting 18 different crochet techniques. Many imitate their knitted brethren; Aran crochet resembles the best of its cousin through post stitches and intricate cables. Others work from once moribund techniques; hairpin lace and Tunisian crochet, for example, are back in fashion. And still others focus on innovation, like free-form and entrelac crochet. Each lesson first profiles the craft master in a few paragraphs and showcases a few of his or her finished pieces. One pattern follows, ranging from a filet crochet table runner to the Princess of Wales memorial tartan blanket. The all black-and-white photographs, unfortunately, don’t live up to the creativity. Expect challenges and some difficult maneuvers. Appendixes provide refresher courses in crochet abbreviations, symbols, and terminology. --Barbara Jacobs
