Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting on the Go: Crocheted Bags (Vogue Knitting on the Go!)?
Good and Bad Aug 22, 2006
I have made only one bag so far - the pink shell bag. It was simple and looks great. I put some embellishments of my own on it. I can see making several of these bags for gifts, in different colors, different handles and trims. So for this pattern alone, it was worth the price.
However, some of the designs are uninteresting or even seem unpolished or amateurish.

Trisha Malcolm is the editor for this book and series but I think something happened to this one as usually the quality is pretty good on this series. First of all, many of the yarns used are very expensive like Trendsetter yarns. Second: since when are baskets considered bags? There's nothing here I want to make but check out the "Hooked bags" by Margaret Hubert which I gave 5 stars. So of the 22 bags only 20 are original here. You'll find a felted laptop bag and a yoga bag here and a freeform bag which calls for a large variety of hard to find materials. Hubert does have two nice clutches here but the yarns are fancier than what she used in her own book.
