My first crocheting projects were making clothes for my Barbie doll, about 40 years ago. Crocheting like knitting is a wonderful hobby for cool winter nights. The touching of soft yarn while creating something beautiful relaxes the mind. Recently having moved into a cooler area I thought I might check out a book, which shows me the latest techniques and styles. I am not into buying stuff from China, I prefer interesting, beautiful and unique pieces.

I could not have made a better choice than getting "How to crochet Vol 1" by Beatrice Crimbleton. Here is what makes this book exceptional: Once and for all it wipes out any association of crocheting and old fashioned doilies.
This book is modern and beautiful. I loved how the author states: "If you are here to learn how to crochet, you must also learn to treat yourself as a real artist..." That is indeed what it is. Crocheting is one of the simplest ways to create artsy clothing, tailored to one's personal liking, no piece alike.

This book takes crocheting into the 21 century. Beautiful illustrations of individual pieces make the reader want to start crocheting this minute. I loved the precious and creative gloves (location 16 and 24) and the various scarves. Actually, these are exactly the kind of pieces I want to crochet. The author does a fine job in presenting technical details about the different needles and yarns, as well as pictures, which show the beginner how to do the various loops and stitches. Even though I have crochet for a long time, I found stitches I had never seen, like the Crocodile Stitch. I think that is the first one I am going to try out..
This book would be a wonderful gift for a daughter, who wants to create unique, individualized, fashionable clothing - 5 stars

Crocheting has always something that I have wanted to do, but have never really been able to get started good. I've even got a few needles around the house and some yarn, and I've picked it up and put it down a few times. This book gave me the details and steps to get started, keep going, and get something finished, finally. For anyone who wants to learn how to crochet, this is the book!

This book shows you how to start a new hobby of crochet. The first chapters go into detail about hooks and different types of yarn. It tells the beginner what yarn to use with the hooks that are available. The pictures really help with all the explanations all through the book.

Methods on holding the hook and advancing yarn are discussed and then each type of stitch is explained from the simple chain to the more complex treble crochet. Instructions for increasing and decreasing each type of stitch are included and explained. The book goes on to creating circles, rings, spirals, how to join rounds and how to join yarn to make the neatest juncture.

All of the different abbreviations used in crochet are listed and the book explains how to block and press a project, how to assemble the projects and includes several different seam methods. Advance projects, like Granny Squares, Bruges crochet and Crocodile stitch are explained as well as all things that can be made by crochet. The book ends by giving great suggestions on how to go into business selling what you make.

It is a great book for the beginner and a good reference book for someone that does know how to crochet, just in case they forget how to make a stitch. Hook and yarn sizes and other measurements are in both American and European measurements so this book can be used by anyone anywhere. There are also suggestions on videos and web sites where you can get lovely patterns and other information.

My wife's mother had always crocheted scarves and hats for our kids for winter, and when she passed last January, I wanted to get this for my wife, since she always wanted to learn herself. She is getting very good, and it makes her feel great doing something she knows her mother loved as well. Can't wait for my blanket!

Beatrice Crimbleton graciously requested I take look at her work, "How to Crochet Vol. 1", providing me with a copy. I was able to view it as a Complete Beginner.... because I really am, knowing nothing than it is something other people really enjoy doing (my next door neighbor has been learning the craft since last December and has often waxed enthusiastically about it when we chat).

With such a natural mindset, I immediately noticed an unfortunate lack... the introduction does not tell me, the absolute novice, what exactly I should buy to get started with. Crimbleton briefly explains and illustrates differences in hooks and yarns, but this simply adds to my initial confusion. What kind of yarn should I start with? Why should I choose one type over another for learning? How should I decide on an appropriate hook? Where do I go for a reliable source of quality materials, recommended manufacturers/retail sites acting as a starting point in my explorations? All these elements should be presented at the outset of the guide, elements long used by how-to guides of every description because it's what beginners *need*.

Beyond that point, however, the various steps are written clearly with accompanying pictures and diagrams. There are some minor punctuation and spelling errors, but nothing disruptive. I especially liked towards the end the Pressing Guide, giving exactly the style of information I wanted in the introduction- practical pressing explanations of each category. If Crimbleton adds recommended beginning materials in the same fashion as her Pressing Guide, then her "Complete Beginner's Guide" will be indeed complete.
