Contents: Icelandic Turtleneck (Chloe Nightingale)- Crocheted sweaters get a bad rap, but this one will change your mind! Crocheted with a thin yarn, the result is a nice, stretchy, snuggly sweater with great drape. Convertible Victorian Shrug (Robyn Chachula)- This shrug was borne of a mix of inspirations - the high necklines and yards of lace reminiscent of the Victorian era, combined with a sexy, confident, asymmetrical twist. Mini-Wrap Skirt (Amy O'Neill Houck)- This edgy yet durable skirt is quick to create and will look cool whether you're riding a bike or taking a night out on the town. Messenger Bag (Julie Armstrong Holetz)- The design of this messenger bag is easily adaptable. By making changes to the cut-out design or embroidered edging, you can give this bag a whole new personality. I'm a Convert Sweater (Melissa Hills)- This modular sweater design makes it many pieces in one - take the sleeves off and remove the neckpiece, and you have a t-shirt! It has a open-work stitch designed to be worn over a shirt, camisole, or alone for a cool breeze. Style Moderne Jewelry (Chloe Nightingale)- This Art Deco inspired jewelry comes in coordinating pieces in a variety of sizes, from a necklace to a cuff bracelet that can be made larger to be an armband or choker. Mesmerize Sweater (Kristin Omdahl)- This sweater with flowing kimono sleeves and side vents incorporates swirling motifs throughout. Shades of Plaid Scarf (Julie Armstrong Holetz)- Go plaid with crochet! This woven chain design in two colorways creates the perfect accent scarf. Leaves Sweater (Annette Petavy)- This sweater is inspired by nature's mysteries. The seed beads bordering the leaves are reminiscent of dewdrops glistening in the morning sun, and they also give this sweater an elegant drape. Thigh Highs (Cecily Keim)- Tights, thigh-highs, leggings! Whatever you call them, this crocheted set will add pizzaz to your wardrobe. Comfy Cardi (Robyn Chachula)- Life is too short to wear an ugly office sweater when you get the chills. This fun, lacy pattern will keep you warm while you look cool. Five O'Clock Tank (Megan Granholm)- Go from day to evening in this lace tank crocheted with bamboo yarn for beautiful drape. Cocoon Bag (Cecily Keim)- This ruffled, crumpled, cocoon-like market bag will have you looking unique and pretty as you walk home with your wares. Variations Baskets (Carol Ventura)- The flared shape and triangle-stripe motif on these baskets is based on artifacts from other cultures. Circle Motif Rug (Donna Hulka)- The designer says she's always loved circles but wasn't wild about crocheting them until she discovered the adjustable ring, which allows the center hole to be pulled tightly closed. Gordo and Doug (Kim Werker)- These dolls, with their luxe exoskeleton of bulky yarn crocheted on a small hook, are terrific for cuddling or for just hanging around looking good.
