  1. Review by A. Designer for Crochet That Fits: Shaped Fashions Without Increases or Decreases
    The black dress on the cover of this book is a great crochet design. Inside the book you’ll find two more creative garment designs — one for a cap-sleeve top and another for a sleeveless turtleneck sweater.

    My criticism of this book lies in the fact that many of the other designs are for scarves, headbands, purses, mittens, etc. When it comes to creating “crochet that fits,” I think most crocheters like myself are expecting this book to provide instructions on creating crochet garments that fit well.

    I was looking for tips on creating sweaters, dresses, and skirts that fit well and don’t look boxy. Many crocheters don’t struggle with creating things such as scarves and headbands because they’re largely just rectangles.

    The book also includes a few open-work designs, which again aren’t the types of projects that necessarily present problems with fit when completed.

    So, if you’re a crocheter who’s looking for more than a few garment patterns to crochet, you may be disappointed if you buy this book, unless you intend to use the technique presented to create your own garment patterns.

  2. Review by Suzanne R. Arnholt for Crochet That Fits: Shaped Fashions Without Increases or Decreases
    This is a nice book for making “shaped” garments. It does live up to its promise not to have increases or decreases. It creates garments largely by working in the “back loop only” with shaping done through different heights of stitches. For example, bust stitches in dc, waist in sc, hips in tr with sleeves added at the end. Given the title, I would have expected more actual garments. There were more than a few headbands and scarves, none of which have to “fit” much since elastic is sewn on the headbands and scarves fit anyone. That said, the idea is novel. Positively Crochet!: 50 Fashionable Projects and Inspirational Tips has a peach top in it that has similar styling to many of the garments in this book, and virtually all of them look like they are made of “ribbing” because of the back loop construction. So, if you are looking for vertical stripes, this has some good ideas of how to make your garments fit well.

  3. Review by Loraine Vorster for Crochet That Fits: Shaped Fashions Without Increases or Decreases
    I absolutely LOVE this book! What attracted me to the book at first was the stunning handbag designs inside. I do not really crochet clothing as the projects are always to time-consuming and I hate following patterns. The patterns in this book, including the clothing pqatterns, are extremely easy to follow. I am now contemplating making clothing items from patterns in this book! I have made two projects from this book so far – the Houndstooth-check felted purse and the Sweater Bag. Both patterns were extremely easy to follow and FUN to make. I think this might be the first time in my life that I started a project and followed the pattern exactly till the end! I highly recommend this book to any crocheter!
