With an estimated 38 million people knowing how to knit or crochet, there probably are more than enough “granny squares” to go around. Uncommon Crochet, by Julie Armstrong Holetz, offers a whole new twist on some great old yarns and materials—natural sheep and alpaca wools, leathers, twine and wire—to create contemporary designs that will delight and amaze. 75 full-color technique photos. $19.95 in paperback from Ten Speed Press.
