Top Customer Reviews
The patterns here are reprinted from old crochet pattern leaflets, and the instructions are reasonably clear and easy enough to follow for intermediate- to advance-level crocheters. And there is a black-and-white photo of each project, including many "close-up" views of the individual motifs.
The problem arises when the photo(s) of a project are separated from the instructions. For example, you see a photo of "Hospitality Tablecloth" - looks wonderful! I want to do this one! Under the photo: "Directions on page 72" -- uh, OK. Where is page 72? There aren't any page numbers in the Kindle edition. So you have to flip through page after page of other photos and instructions until you find the set of instructions under a DIFFERENT photo for another tablecloth (whose directions are somewhere else) that are labeled for the photo of the item you wish to make -- in this case, ** 20 ** pages after the photo. How difficult would it have been for someone to either include clickable links to the instruction page or actually move things around so that the photos are followed immediately by the directions?
I love Dover's needlecraft series, and they've done a lot to make these vintage patterns available for a reasonable price. But if you're going to do a Kindle edition of something, I believe that a little care should be taken to reformat to fit the idiosyncrasies of that device (i.e. "locations" rather than "page numbers").
The patterns are still useful, the photos are still relatively clear, but finding what you're looking for is frankly a royal pain. I'm giving this 3 stars -- it's OK. I don't hate it, but it's more difficult to use than it should be.
Really want to make the matching table cloth. But I'm afraid my family will disown me lol. I get OCD on projects like that and have to work till it's done.
I love this book... It's great stuff for those with lots of experience.
Incomparable value for the money and the results are works of art.
