About the Author:

Dora Ohrenstein lives in New York, New York. Her designs have appeared in Interweave Crochet, knit.1, Crochet Today, The New Crochet (Lark, 2005), and Fabulous Crocheted Ponchos (Lark, 2005). She is the author of Creating Crochet Fabric (Lark, 2010 ) and the founder and editor of the webzine Crochet Insider (crochetinsider.com), which features interviews with industry leaders, textile artists, and designers. She lives and works in Manhattan and, as a classically trained singer, also teaches voice.

From Booklist:

It is possible to go through the whole process of making a sweater, only to find that it doesn’t fit quite right. Ohrenstein guides readers through making sweaters that fit, deflating common fears along the way. She doesn’t just want you to follow instructions; she wants you to grasp the technique of how sweaters are constructed, with the idea that once you understand the concept, you can alter, customize, and even change the project to suit your fit and style. This is not for beginners but, rather, for crocheters who want to take their craft to the next level in combining creativity with technical construction. Included are 10 sweater designs with alterations. Each pattern includes discussion of technique and lessons, with emphasis on understanding how the garment is put together and including helpful side notes. Challenge yourself under the caring guidance of this designer, writer, teacher, and professional singer (also author of Crochet Insider’s Passion for Fashion, 2008, and Creating Crochet Fabric, 2010, and founder-editor of crochetinsider.com). --Lani Smith
