cool Jul 24, 2008
"Vogue" is known for, well being in "Vogue". This book has some lovely crocheted shawls you wont's be likely to find somewhere else. The "Vogue On the Go" crochet books can be a little spotty. In previous books, I have been disappointed to find some sections of the pattern do not seem to be there. But I'm happy to report that this is_not_ the case in "Crocheted Shawls". All the patterns are clear and concise. There is no grading of the pattern - beginner or intermediate, so that might be a problem for some folks. But it may allow others to stretch their crochet wings a bit, just to see what can be accomplished. There is also no charts or symbols. This can also cause a problem for some crocheters. I do like to see charts mostly because they help me visualize how the shawl should be put together in case of multiple motifs. I do recommend this book for intermediate and curious crocheters. I believe they will find many patterns to choose from. The jacket cover shawl is beautiful, but the looped shawl is on my works in mind list. So give it a chance.
Great patterns Mar 28, 2008
This book was surprisingly good. I have been disappointed by the on the go books before but I found this one had several patterns I wanted to crochet and several that were inspirational as well. There's a ton of variety in both the styles of shawl and the techniques. A beginner could find a suitable pattern but the most advanced crocheter could also find a pattern with a little challenge. Many kudos!
One of my favorites! Jan 2, 2008
I got this book as a gift and I'm thrilled with it. I actually like *all* of the patterns inside and I've got six of them waiting in my "to-do" drawer. The patterns are well-written and cover a wide range of skill levels, styles and tastes. Best of all, they're great for crocheters like me who are young and want to make/wear things that are age-appropriate.
Yet again, no symbols Oct 11, 2007
Two stars, because there are some very pretty patterns here, I am disappointed yet again. I don't understand Vogue knitting. When are they going to wake up and add crochet symbols to their books? They're so much easier to follow. Doris Chan's books use them, Teva Durham uses them, and so do many others. Crochet scarves is the same. What a letdown.
(I don't advocate doing away with written instructions - but both is almost a must nowadays!)

For crocheters who do shawls this is a must purchase book.Only one caveat: no hairpin lace in this book.
