In Rustic Modern Crochet Yumiko Alexander showcases 18 clean, sophisticated crochet designs. Yumiko’s garments feature eye-catching construction based on very simple lines that come together in unexpected ways. Stitch patterns have central focus here, as the silhouettes or shapes are kept simple to emphasize the crocheted fabric. Her pieces are versatile enough that they can be dressed up or down according to your fancy.

Yumiko takes her inspiration from the natural world – tide-swept sand, shells, coral, shale rock formations, the colors of sunset. Her nature-inspired palette is brought to life using luscious yarns that are as pleasing to the hand as they are to the eye.

These 18 designs will appeal to both younger and more mature crocheters. Versatility is key in the sizing as well: designs will feel at home on wearers from size to small to XXL. Experienced beginner crocheters will be able to complete these projects, and intermediate crocheters will find patterns to love!

Distinctive and Wearable Designs Review by Diane

I am very impressed with this book! The designs are distinctive and stylish. I am working on the Bridges tunic and the pattern is easy to follow. I want to make every single item!

This book is incredible. Review by Terry

This is a truly wonderful book by an incredibly talented author. I am so glad I stumbled upon it. Almost every pattern is unique and perfectly laid out for working through to the end. I can certainly say that this is the best new vision of crochet work that i have seen, ever.

However, this is the third book, and magazine, that I received from Interweave Store that was so closely form pressed into the packaging that the products were in some degree damaged. Two were just crinkled on the covers, but one I had to press down most of the pages. This needs to be addressed.

Incredibly Beautiful Projects! Review by Brenda

I am a novice spinner, a dabbler weaver, a sporadic knitter and an even more intermittent (but very enthusiastic) crocheter. I bought this book because of the project on the cover, hoping for the best with the rest of the projects. Wow was I not disappointed! I want to do most of the projects (unusual for me), and I am confident I will be able to execute them because of the clear layout, great photography, and detailed text and graphical instructions. Our hand-spinning guild has a spring challenge to take 4 oz of fiber and turn it into a finished project and I can’t wait to do the water lily scarf on page 70 as my project!

Note to the people who gave this book a one-star rating because they couldn't see more projects or hadn't received their copies yet. Please respect the author by rating and reviewing based on the book and its content--not the presentation and shipping by the distributor. And if you are going to give a one-star rating, please explain why in your review.

Wow! Review by Irris

Have just downloaded the ebook - and wow, what an exciting collection. I just want to start, but which one?! Clever, confident designs, but also elegant, and so wearable. I particularly look for patterns that include larger sizes, so had to take a punt on that, but the designer has come through on that too. Ticks all the boxes for me - I am in awe of Yumiko.

ratings Review by Debi

It's easy enough to go to Amazon to see the projects in this book. Why give it a 1 or 2 star rating just because you can't see the projects right here? I wouldn't be interested in this book if I had glanced at the average rating instead of reading the reasons why there was a low rating. I'm rating it a five star because 1. the projects look lovely and different from the average patterns usually seen, and 2. this review requires that i give a start rating in order to submit the review :)

Preview, please? Review by Julia

I'm very interested in this book. I have been since you first put a preview for it up on your site. The problem is, I don't buy pattern books unless I've seen what the patterns work up into, and you still haven't posted the images - although I've just gotten an email recommending that I buy the book with some of the images embedded in it, and the designer has what seem to be patterns from the book posted on Ravelry.

Since this appears to be a book you folks published, could you please post the images?

Love It!! Review by Linda

I downloaded the eBook and I am so happy with this purchase. All but a few are patterns I want to make. In fact I've already made the Water Lily scarf which I've already worn and gotten compliments on. You won't be sorry buying this book. Thank you Yumiko.
