Happy Hooker - Debbie Stoller

Truth be told, I almost didn't purchase this book. I'm not a big fan of the title. I get the SnB thing and the HH pun, but I didn't look at it and think "Oh, how cute, I must buy this."

However, this book contains the pattern for Stitch Diva's Baroque Jacket which I was planning to buy anyway. And there's more really neat patterns inside, including Julie Holetz's Fat Bottom Bag and the most adorable pink fuzzy bunny slippers designed by Shannon Murphree. So far, I've made the Baroque Jacket and the Fat Bottom Bag. I plan to make the Li'l Monkey afghan soon.

Actually, there's 40 crochet patterns here and they are all really good. One pattern, the One Skein Scarf, has turned up as a free pattern on Patons website. There is a major list of errata though and you can find that here. .

And if you want to learn to crochet the first 95 pages are full of instructions.
