Description

Get the vintage
look...without
the vintage aggravation


Everybody loves a great vintage find on eBay or in
an antique shop. Unfortunately, everybody also
knows that for every great vintage find, there are
dozens of "vintage" items that are really just "old
and kind of dirty." Ick. Now readers can make their
very own "vintage" home accents, accessories,
gifts, and more with Vintage Crochet, the book that
brings together the best in brand-spankin' new
designs for great nostalgic projects. Author Susan Cropper gathers the finest crochet designs into four
sections: Nostalgic Home, modern-retro accents;
Lazy Summers, hot styles for picnics and patios;
Boho Babes, hip fashions like a sheath dress, a
shrug, and a beaded necklace; and Gorgeous Gifts,
nifty presents. This is vintage as it was meant to be: fun, amusing, nostalgic... and really really clean.


• More than 30 chic, nostalgic projects for
crocheters at every level


• Home accents, clothing, gifts, more, by top
designers, including Bee Clinch, Alicia Paulson,
Kristeen Griffin-Grimes


• International style! Author has roots in
NYC and London
