The instructions are crystal clear. The trickiest bit about crochet is where to put the hook for the next stitch. This book has extra-clear color diagrams that demystify the process.

They also have patterns for things that people might actually want to make. Many crochet books try to start you out with a pot-holder or dishrag. Um, not too thrilling. This book basically has you make the same thing--a simple small rectangle of single crochet, but then has you fold it into a jewelry case. Much better.

All of the projects are actually cute and worth your time. Thank God, no skirts made of granny-squares! (Would crochet designers forget that! No one--not one single person on the planet--would be caught dead in a skirt that looks like your grandmother's afghan. And no clever crocheted bikinis either. Just cute, do-able projects.

I haven't actually used the yarn ithat comes with the kit, so I can't say whether it's good quality, but it appears to be.

I think this book/kit would be appreciated by a person of any age who wants to learn a fun and useful craft.

I've been knitting for years and decided to pick up crochet. I have tried to follow other books, but it just wasn't clicking for me. Five minutes with this book and I was off and going. The illustrations are fabulous e.g. little arrows that say "put next stitch here". And each project walks you through the entire project step-by-step...all the way to the end! There are 6 quick, but rewarding projects that give you instant success and gratification!!!

The projects are:

Jewelry Roll/eyeglass case

Envelope purse

Bath soap bag

Flowers

Cloche hat

scarf

I've made 4 of the six projects in a week and never got lost or frustrated. I love the way they turned out.

I just wish I'd known about the knitting book from Klutz when I was learning to knit.

This would make an awesome gift for anyone wanting to learn to crochet.

I was given this book as a gift from my husband a few weeks ago--I thought it might be too juvenile but I was wrong! I had been trying to learn to crochet from instructions found on the internet but was not catching on at all. After 10 minutes with this book I realized exactly what I was doing wrong and had the first project completed within the hour. I have made every project from the book now and I'm ready to pass it along to a friend, she cannot believe how much I was able to do in such a short time but the instructions are that clear. I agree with a previous reviewer--the clarity of the illustrations and hook placement make all the difference. I highly recommend this book for anyone frustrated with learning to crochet.

This book is great. It steps you through all of the basic stitches and crochet skills in an unintimidating way. The projects are pretty cute and really help you get a feel for what is possible with crochet. In each project, all steps are described and diagrammed very clearly. Though no formal patterns are introduced, the book does have a short section about deciphering pattern abbreviations (for future use). After completing all of the projects in this book (in about a week) I feel ready to tackle intermediate patterns from more advanced books.

I thought this was a wonderful book. My grandmother taught me a little crochet when I was young but I had not tried it in years. This book was the perfect way to relearn this craft. The instructions were very clear and easy to understand (unlike a lot of other books)and it even included everything you need to get started. I have made 5 of the 6 projects with terrific results. I can't wait to try the last one.

This book is fantastic--as all the Klutz books are. It has great step by step instructions and pictures that help to teach you how to crochet. Also, they include the "real world" abbreviations for crochet patterns so that after you learn the basics you can apply them to different projects and patterns not included in the book. The illustrations on each step are very clear and it comes will all the supplies needed to start crocheting asap! No matter what your age, this is a great book to start with to learn how to crochet.

Since I taught myself how to knit from a book, I thought it would be simple to do the same with crochet. I've tried a few crochet books and websites without success.

This book was the winner. The illustrations are the best I've found in any how-to-crochet book. The colors helped me see what the yarn is doing and the written instructions were very clear.

The projects shown have a good variety, especially considering that this is a short book (there are several packed in here but nothing is sacrificed in terms of instruction). I think that everything I need is here, from basic chains to granny squares.

Since I'm experienced with buying yarn and other supplies, I can also say that the book is a good bargain. You get three nice sized hanks of pretty, quality yarn, a good crochet needle, stitch markers, a yarn needle (for sewing in loose ends), a button for one of the projects and a nice case for your supplies... plus the book.

I've completed one project immediately after reading the book and, although I'm taking a crochet break to concentrate on knitting some gifts, I plan on coming back to this book often. It will be my primary reference for crochet.
