BOOK REVIEW: Modular Crochet by Judith Copeland


BLURB:

Crocheting has never been faster and easier ― and the design possibilities have never been more exciting. This simple but innovative technique makes creating sophisticated-looking pullovers as easy as crocheting a scarf. All modular crochet garments are worked in the same basic shape, which consists of eight modules, or rectangles. You can make an infinite number of styles by varying the size of the rectangles, the type and color of yarn, and the stitches. What's more, you can customize each garment while it's being made for perfect-fit pullovers in any size, silhouette, and style ― and you'll never have to follow traditional written instructions again.


Nearly four decades after its initial publication, this guide remains among the most revolutionary and revered books on freeform and improvisational crochet. Even beginners can use its innovative method to make pullovers, turtlenecks, vests, ponchos, caftans, and other items. Easy-to-follow diagrams accompany each original design, in addition to 40 large full-color photos.


REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 9 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This crochet book shows a few patterns and many models of the patterns. 

I recommend this book for crocheters, like myself, who want to see what a finished product would look like. I do not have any favorite designs/patterns. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 and up.
