Book Review: Crochet Wraps Every Which Way by Tammy Hildebrand

I met Tammy Hildebrand several years ago at the CGOA conference I spoke at in Manchester, New Hampshire. Since then, we have become online friends and designer collegues in the industry. In Tammy's new book, "Crochet Wraps Every Which Way" she explores 6 crochet techniques in a collection of 18 designs. This is a great collection for someone wanting to explore new techniques! The color palette is bright and cheerful like Tammy and the designs are lacey and flowy which is definitley what I would say is Tammy's signature.

  • Patterns for 18 wraps and shawls using 6 crochet techniques: traditional crochet, motif crochet, Tunisian crochet, broomstick lace, hairpin lace, and double-ended crochet
  • Includes one easy, one intermediate, and one advanced project for each technique
  • Accessories for every occasion: delicate shawlettes, comfy ponchos, intricate lace shawls, and vibrant, modern wraps

    Here are some rave Celebrity Reviews:

    "What eye candy! The very talented Tammy Hildebrand has given crocheters both a good foundation of 6 techniques as well as wearable and versatile wraps. You'll find not only the ubiquitous shawls, but ponchos and ruanas as well. There's something for everybody here. I defy you to not find something that instantly makes you want to buy this book!" - Lily Chin, author "Tammy Hildebrand has truly found her crochet voice. In this book she brings together her breezy, happy desgn aesthetic, her feel for great fabrics and textures, and her joyful personality and wit to present this bouquet of projects. Tammy's wraps are just wonderful; she deftly manipulates many stitch patterns and multiple crochet techniques, including hairpin, broomstick, Tunisian, and double-ended hook, with photo tutorials that cap it all off. Brilliant!" - Doris Chan, author
