By her own admission, Teva Durham used to be a knit snob. No longer. Now, the influential needlecraft guru has become a two-timer, bringing the same ingenuity, innovative eye, and solid fashion sense that shes always exhibited in her knitting design to the world of crochet. In "Loop-d-Loop Crochet," Durham presents more than 25 designs that are as up-to-the-minute, style-wise, as they are thoroughly steeped in crochet stitchwork tradition. Each of the projects, which range from purses, skirts, shawls, and sweaters for the whole family to a hammock and a pair of brocade boots, epitomizes Durhams signature design sensibility, which she describes as a tension of oppositesrough-hewn yet delicate, stark yet feminine, organic yet structured. Decked out in evocative color photographs (by Adrian Buckmaster), a diverse cast of models show off the finished garments. Beginner and advanced crocheters will find Durhams novel approach refreshing and inspiring. And for newcomers just making the switch from knitting, "Loop-d-Loop Crochet" provides the perfect introduction to what Durham terms the flip side of needlecrafts heritage. Crochet is a freeing experience, Durham saysa sentiment with which her many fans are certain to agree.
