section on basic to intermediate crochet techniques, well illustarted with good diagrams Then comes a collection of fun to make Irish crochet type designs with roses and leaves, followed by a good section on motifs worked in the round. A nice selection of textured stitches, many with variations, is given with both written and symbol instructions. Color blending is covered, a nice surprise, as well as a good coverage of surface crochet and free style. The publisher should have used a better title to describe the varied
contents of this book. Symbol diagrams are well done, color close-ups of stitches show lots of detail. There's a lot of bang for the buck in this volume, which has a hidden spiral binding, making it easy to use.
There are good basic instructions, well written out and illustrated, and each of the different stitches is given with written instructions and diagrams, making it a breeze to learn how to interpret diagrams, which to me were a bit daunting when I first came across a pattern set out that way. This book even has a flap at the back giving stitch, abbreviation and symbol, that can be left open while working for instant reference.
There is a good selection of pattern stitches for experimenting with. Start off making a dishcloth to see how any particular stitch works and then just see where the fancy takes you!
I would highly recommend this book.
