The third handy-size, take-it-everywhere entry in the Portable Crafter series focuses on crochet, a form of needlework that just keeps getting more and more popular. With projects created by the design editor for The Crochet Guild of America, this collection offers something beautiful for stitchers of all levels. The styles range from traditional to contemporary, and the items all use rich, soft yarns. Many take advantage of the newest textured patterns, which give added appeal and dimension to every garment and accessory. Select from a cute Baby Cupcake Hat in spring colors, a super-simple yet elegant Beaded Purse, a ruffled Cherries Pillow, a Summer Shell that's embellished with a flower; plus afghans, flip-flops, booties, scarves, caps, bookmarks, and towels.
