Review by Booklist Reviews

There is no longer any excuse to point to a stash of unused yarn and say, "I don't know what I'm going to do with these fibers." Thanks to Durant, who pioneered the franchise of One-Skein Wonders, and her collaboration with Eckman (of The Crochet Answer Book, 2005, among many others), any needleworker can add another 100 possible projects to the ever-growing inventory of "gotta makes." With classifications by yarn weight, which is an easy-to-use differentiation, the seven chapters offer at least one item in every conceivable craft category, including jewelry, home decor, belts, women's wear, doll clothes, men's scarves, toys, and baby apparel. Directions are clear and accessible, rendered in written instructions and universal-symbol diagrams, and accompanied by color photographs. Should the crafter opt for the beady bangles or the hair scrunchies? The switchback or the gratitude scarf? How about Louis the Lobster or Niles the Crocodile? And so the "too little time, so many projects" excuse goes up in smoke. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Library Journal Reviews

Well-known crochet designer Eckman (Connect the Shapes Crochet Motifs) and "One-Skein Wonders" series editor Durant (Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders) team up for a collection of 101 crochet projects. The projects are organized by yarn weight, making it easy for crocheters to find projects that correspond to their preferred yarn type. As with other volumes in the series, there's a diverse assortment of projects in a variety of styles and skill levels, so there's something to suit most tastes. Step-by-step instructions, including charts when appropriate, and full-color photos accompany each project. VERDICT The latest installment of this popular series is sure to please crocheters looking for projects suitable for their favorite skein of yarn. [Page 86]. (c) Copyright 2013.
