From the catwalks of Europe to the trendiest catalogs and boutiques, crochet is making a very fashionable resurgence. But even with all that popularity, there's no need to pay designer prices for chic crocheted clothes. These stylish, contemporary patterns come from a variety of artists, and they're far from those musty designs Grandma used to make. And because most use familiar and easy to learn stitches, you can easily make them yourself with the help of the well-illustrated basics section. All the classic garments--including a cloche, fringed poncho, Chanel-inspired jacket, and itsy-bitsy bikini--are created with both traditional and specialty yarns, and they feature a range of fashionable embellishments like textured bobble stitches, corkscrew fringe, and delicate edgings.
