Forget ugly afghans and dainty doilies and think luxurious throws and sumptuous sweaters. You can crochet cool stuff that will make everyone envious--things to spice up your wardrobe and your pad, or gifts to amaze your ""I could never do that"" friends. Choose from nearly thirty projects ranging from elegant to earthy--from a chic shrug to a recycled denim rug and from fun plush toys to sweaters too good for boys.


In hip style, this guide covers:
* All kinds of yarns and materials, and the tools of the trade
* The basic stitches, shaping, finishing techniques, blocking, and more
* Simple projects that give you close-to-instant gratification and more complex ones that take some commitment
* Suggestions for customizing every design and personalizing every project

Intone your creative mantra and get your hooks into a terrific project. With Not Your Mama's Crochet, you won't just make unique, chic items--you'll make a statement.
