My mom or I checked this book out from the local city library when I was in high school and we kept it for about 5 years, I think. I learned to knit during that time- and honed my crochet skills- with the help of this book. It is where I fell in love with lace knitting. It has one large lace tablecloth in it that I am pretty sure was designed by Herbert Niebling or the Burda design team, anyway. It is called 'Apple Blossom,' I believe. That pattern has written instructions (sadly- since the original German version would have been charted- but at the time- publishers thought they knew what American knitters needed). There are many other many wonderful items for the home. Many knitted and crocheted afghans, placemats, rugs, bedspreads, pillow and cushion covers, and doilies. There are crocheted bowls. The doily selection is not large- but one crocheted star pattern reminds me of a star quilt in it's color changes. It has a very Native American or Southwest look in the book- but you could make it in colors of your choosing. I recommend this book highly if you're looking for a place to learn the basics- or to find some really fun patterns to make for your home.

By the way- this entire book is also included in the larger book- Better Homes and Gardens Treasury of Needlecrafts. Crocheting and Knitting is one in a series. The Treasury book binds all those individual books into one volume. The Treasury includes other skills like applique, patchwork and quilting, rugmaking, embroidery, and needlepoint.

Bought this for one particular pattern. Am anxious to start crocheting it. Great patterns. Easy to understand and follow directions.

This pattern book is full of very different, unusual patterns that are timeless.
I have already made one pattern from the book and recommend another to a friend.
I expect to go back to it soon for others.
The pictures are placed well (many leaflets do not do this) and the instructions are very clear.

This book has a lot of afghans and other household items. Been there, done that. There are some cute patterns, however, I am looking for some doable sweater patterns, not the same old afghan patterns that I have in a ton of books in my library.
