Hilary Mackin studied fashion and textiles at college, specialising in knitwear. She now designs regularly for all the major knitting and crochet magazines. She is constantly in demand and is the author of Simple Stylish Knits, also by New Holland. Sue Whiting is an experienced crochet designer who regularly works for magazines and yarn companies. She is the author of Learn to Crochet and Party Crochet, both published by New Holland.From Booklist:
Any stitcher worth his or her yarn will insist that there is no such thing as too many patterns. And with the renaissance of crochet, the resurrection of old-fashioned, even retro designs continues--all, of course, proffered with a contemporary twist. The Reader's Digest gang--and authors Mackin (So Simple Knits, 2005) and Whiting (Learn to Crochet, 2005)--team up to create more than 30 projects from which to choose, including sweaters, accessories, kid stuff, and home accessories. Here, the emphasis is on quick, meaning a one- to two-weekend project. Although none of the patterns indicate time to complete, all feature skill level, materials, charts (when needed), directions, and color photographs. What's more, a few sport a loving-hands-at-home look; a ruffled boa as well as asymmetrical jacket, among others, symbolize a professional twentieth-century crochet. Barbara Jacobs
