Customer Reviews

So, the text and instruction is excellent.
Cassandra Hale
The spiral book does lay out nice and flat with pages heavy enough to stay in place even with a fan going.
Tisa A. Williams
Highly recommend this book as a reference guide.

This book is actually a compilation of materials from Jan Eaton and others. So, the text and instruction is excellent. I have many crochet books, and this one is my favorite. I learned how to do Tunisian crochet using it, and it has some of my favorite Eaton stitch patterns in it. As far as instructional, I thought it did an excellent job. No book will be as good as having a private instructor, but this comes close. I had no trouble understanding the instructions, and I thought the photos were as good as any other book on the market, with the added bonus that it features instructions for Tunisian crochet and has a beautiful stitch library. Also, the binding lays flat, so you can set it down while trying it out. If you have trouble learning from texts, I'd suggest a video or DVD usually available at your local public library. Oh, and I thought the instruction in the book clearer than that of Teach Yourself Visually Crocheting.

Okay, so I bought this book, with the anticipation that it would actually live up to it's title "The Crochet Handbook and Stitch Guide," and it would be something that I could actually add to my extensive crochet/knit library. When you buy books that have titles such as this, you do so with the understanding that it is efficient and all-inclusive in the world of crochet. This book didn't come close, and can be described as generic at best. I can honestly say this, because I am an advanced crocheter. There are much better resources out there on the internet, that offer better tutorials and information. To make this review easier for you, the average consumer, I will list the Pros/Cons:
Pros-
1) The book can lay flat, which can make it an easier read while you are working
2) The pictures are colorful
3) Font is readable
4) author includes pictures of some of the crochet symbols also used in charts
.............................................
Cons-
1) The book starts off with talking about different crochet hooks, but didn't include a size chart that converts US sizes with other sizes. There was also no mention of other types of crochet needles or there uses. Examples would include the double-pointed crochet needle, Crohook, circular crochet needles, specialty needles that can be used by those who have carpal tunnel/arthritis/other wrist & hand issues, and steel vs aluminum vs plastic needles, etc.
2) There is also mention of other items to include in one's crochet bag, but there is no detail of how to use these (e.g. markers, row counters, waste yarn, notebook, etc.). For example, the book mentions that one should keep notes when they work.

This book is not very helpful. Instructions are sketchy, and sometimes confusing. If you don't already know a lot about crochet it won't help you. If you do, you probably won't need it. The small pictures only show a section in the middle of the pattern.

This is the book I've always wanted. To the negative poster, it's not supposed to show more than a square of the pattern. The instructions are excellent. I love the ring binder feature...it lays open on my craft table! Thank you!

I purchased this book to enhance my niece's enjoyment of crocheting and decided to get myself a copy, as well. So glad I decided to get my own copy, otherwise I would never give her's up. So many opportunities to learn new techniques and stitches. Even with my many years of experince with the needle there is so much more I can add to my chest of knowledge. The bobbles, popcorns, clusters, and shells amazed me but I was very my excited to find techniques to include beading into my crochet projects. The spiral book does lay out nice and flat with pages heavy enough to stay in place even with a fan going. Pictures are clear and extremely helpful for demonstrating new techniques. It's like you are standing over the instructor's shoulder. The finishing techniques are clearly explained and demonstrated so that even the novice can turn out a quality product. Like I said before, I can't wait to get started. WHAT DO I DO FIRST?!?!

Very useful! When I was 11 my great grandma taught me to double crochet. She passed away the next year, at the age of 90. I am 25 now and wanted to learn some other stitches and things. I've been using Youtube and googling, which can be very helpful, but this book is a great reference too.

Great little book. I am a newbie at crochet, I have tried to learn several times without much success. This book is extremely helpful and I am finally getting to grips with crochet.
