It's easy for contemporary crafters to say, "This isn't your grandma's crafting," but owing to changing trends, it may well be. This collection of crochet projects has that vibe: if your grandmother crocheted in the 1970s, you're likely to have pieces similar to these. Palanjian (former deputy editor, ReadyMade magazine) collects projects that are pretty in a retro-hipster way and generally easy enough for beginners.
VERDICT Some of the projects are stunning, especially the crocheted necklaces, but others are just odd
