Knitting is all the rage, but did you know crocheters outnumber knitters 3 to 1? Cozy Crochet does for the hook what Knitting Pretty did for needles, with 26 step-by-step projects that will appeal to the sophisticated tastes of the new generation of crocheters. Ranging from simple projects for new converts to more advanced patterns for seasoned crafters, the creations in Cozy Crochet are fresh and contemporary: stylish striped throw pillows, an embellished clutch purse, a delicate wrap for a night on the town.

Appealing, accessible, and utterly original, the designs in Cozy Crochet will have readers hooked.
