I have waited so long to see a crafting book like this come out and WOW is it full of WIN.  You will find projects for crochet, knitting, beading and sewing.  Now how often does that happen in a book ?  I found all the instructions very easy to follow, very well illustrated AND you certainly will be able to find the materials easily. 

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

About this book


"You are about to embark on a wondrous journey, full of flowers, and light, and--wait, wrong book. This book is about the darker side of craft.

If you are familiar with our website, this will be like an old friend, except it won't call you at three in the morning asking for bail money."

More than just a hip knitting/crochet book: Fiber enthusiasts, DIY fashion designers and other dark-minded crafters alike will be inspired by the wide variety of cool, nontraditional projects, to try something new.

Filled with projects such as the Tough Baby Sweater, the I [Skull] Trouble Tote and a sleek, black duct-tape corset, Anticraft takes an approach much sought after by the growing audience of hot publications like BUST, Ready Made and Craft: transforming traditional crafts into quirky wearable fashion. Featuring a variety of knitting, crochet, stitching and beading projects the book instructs, inspires and entertains. Includes quirky sidebars such as "How to tap into your dark side" and "The top five reasons it's good to be an AntiCrafter", plus comic strip art, recipes and more.
