Crochet Style BY SALLY HARDING (Ballantine Books; 1987)

CROCHETED garments all too frequently look like something made by a loving but uninspired relative: frumpy and boring. Fortunately, Harding's book can change all that; not only are the designs stylish and interesting, but they are also presented in a wonderful format that lists variations for designs, colors, yarns and stitches. Even the obligatory basic-stitch and finishing information is clear and helpful. ($11.95)
