Get hooked. In a good way.

Hey, hipster. Forget glumpy afghans. Get hooked on Friendship Wrist Cuffs, a Sushi Roll Pillow, Fingerless Gloves (punk version), Fingerless Gloves (prom version), or a Pleated Miniskirt. These ain t your granny's crocheting. Specifically designed for tweens and teens, the trendy, simple projects in Get Hooked will entice even the most too-cool-for-school young person. Clear, starting-from-scratch directions begin with how to hold the hook and where to put the yarn, then move with lightning speed to the good stuff--actually making crocheted items to wear and to share. Extra sections show teens how to make their own hook holders, how to select movies to crochet by, organize crocheting groups, even crochet for charity. Add the low, low cover price, and stand back as hordes of teens rush to Get Hooked
