I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR ANYONE who needs help beginning or remembering the basics of crocheting. The instructions are very clear with both pictures and easy to understand language. I also love the projects and have made all of them, many of them multiple times (I like to give them as gifts since they are cute as well as fast and easy to make). Furthermore, I don't just love this book, I now love (and trust) this company. I have bought their face-painting book and knitting book so far.
Something else that is great, is that most of their books come with all or most of the necessary supplies. This book comes with enough of 2 different colored yarns (which is pretty good quality, very silky/luxurious) to complete one whole project, a crochet needle (which I didn't care for, but that is personal preference since I only like to use the one I learned on), stitch marker circles, a tapestry yarn needle, and knit yarn bobbins.
Critiques: The projects are dated and not very trendy and there is a lack of explanation on how to read patterns. There is a very brief section on pattern reading and acronyms commonly used but I think they could have elaborated more and even written their project examples in both plain English and with "pattern talk". It would have been a great supplement to this beginner's book.
However, if you want to learn the basic stitches with great visuals get this!
My only wish is that it would countain at least one last project with a "standard" pattern. I am looking online to make a baby blanket for my expecting friend and it's hell to understand anything out there. But all in all it's a great book, you learn easily and while having fun!
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.
