I got mine from Amazon for $10.85 and I think it is a bargain at that price. It is full of great information and patterns to keep you busy for years! : ) I think it is a great addition to any crocheter's library.
One of my students brought this book to me and asked me to help them figure out one of the patterns. In the end we just had to abandon the pattern and make it up as we went. This woman doesn't have a clue what she is talking about. If you don't know what a cluster stitch is (and she doesn't), then she is not a crocheter and has no business pretending to write a crochet book. She appears to just make things up. How this book got 119 positive reviews I'll never understand. She must have 119 friends, editors, publishers, co-workers, and more friends to lie for her. She should be ashamed.
Poorly, poorly, poorly done.
I don't care how cute the patterns look. If you can't understand the instructions, then it's just a picture book that will sit on your shelf till you finally try to re-sell it on Amazon.
Bottom line, don't buy this book.
However, if you're a lefty looking to learn to crochet, there is NO WAY you could learn to crochet from this book. Don't even try.
The one(!!) sentence of instructions for lefties says it all. On p.27, the instructions tell lefties to either learn to crochet right-handed (which seems like a real cop-out on her part and, frankly, irresponsible) or "reverse everything - and I mean everything - in this book." And that's it. No other instructions, tips, NOTHING. Learning to crochet with your right hand would be equivalent to learning to write with your right hand: not easy and not necessary. There are other books out there that actually show left-handed instructions, diagrams, and tips on how to convert patterns for lefties. This book has none of these.
If you already know how to crochet, this book has some cute patterns (do check for errata on the website) but lefties are on their own. If you're looking to learn crochet AND you are left handed, my recommendation is to look elsewhere and (possibly) come back to this book when you've got way more experience.

Lots of good explanation and diagrams, but the projects--wouldn't be caught dead in them or carrying them or with them in my house. Nasty, useless stuff.Published 4 months ago by Darla Heart
