When granny squares and crocheted doilies are made from black leather twine and organic hemp, they have an unexpectedly modern cachet. In "Uncommon Crochet", new techniques and fibres are applied to 20 patterns for boxes, bowls, purses, baskets, trays, totes, and bags. Using recycled materials along with wire, tulle, hemp, leather, jute, twine, linen, and silk, crochet designer Julie Holetz (aka SkaMama) offers a fresh twist on old-school techniques, turning simple projects into gift- and display-worthy creations.
