Loop: Vintage Crochet contains a gorgeous collection of timeless fashion pieces, modern accessories, classic and quirky gifts, and modern-retro furnishings for the home and garden, all specially commissioned by Loop's founder, Susan Cropper, from a variety of leading international crochet designers.

Using an array of sumptuous, textural yarns -such as alpaca, silk, cotton, mohair and cashmere- in subtle, earthy and vibrant colours, such as dirty pinks and blues, shades of cream, earthy brown, leafy green and burnt orange, these nostalgic designs will let you indulge your inner hippie-chick while creating future heirlooms to treasure.

The projects feature a variety of different stitches and techniques -some quick and easy, and others requiring more time and skill. Each pattern comes with yarn specifications and suggestions for embellishments using buttons, ribbons and pompoms.

They are divided into four chapters: `Boho Babes' -beautiful clothes and accessories with a hippie-ish vibe; `Nostalgic Home' -modern-retro home furnishings; `Lazy Summers' -pretty items for outdoor living; and `Gorgeous Gifts' -perfect presents to give away or to keep for yourself.

Loop: Vintage Crochet bursts with enough originality and inspiring ideas to get even the most un-crafty of people running for their knitting needles.

There are too many mistakes in the patterns for this to be a useful book. If you ar determined, check out the errata on the Loop website - but that does not cover all the errors in a patten by any means. Be very alert - or don't start in the first place.
