Reviews for Austentatious Crochet : 32 Contemporary Designs from the World of Jane Austen

Library Journal Reviews 2012 February #1

Austenmania shows no signs of slowing down, and veteran crochet designer Horozewski, who specializes in literature-inspired designs, presents a collection of Regency-inspired crochet patterns. Each of the seven chapters focuses on a specific inspiration (e.g., love) and begins with a vignette featuring Austen's heroines; trivia quizzes are sprinkled throughout. The designs, which are romantic enough for the most ardent of Austenites but modern enough for everyday wear or use, are suitable for crocheters of a variety of skill levels, and written directions are provided for all designs, with charts for the more complex items.
