This book is full of beautifully photographed and well-written patterns for a variety of projects; I began two of them immediately. There is an excellent "how to" section at the back with super close-up photos and clear explanations of how to make each type of stitch, including the Tunisian stitch.

I am a self-taught beginner crochet. I wanted to learn some new patterns so I can create more than just scarves. I have collected a library of books already but this one was what I was looking for - the directions are clear and accurate, the photos of the stitches helpful and the patterns are not too difficult to learn, Now I can create more than scarves!

This book is perfect for unique shawls and throws. The use of speciality yarns to will result in throws that any crocheter can be proud to display in their home or give as a gift. Although the books says it is for a beginner, the patterns seem more geared towards an advanced beginner. However, all the stitches are explained in the back of the book. One thing that is very helpful is that this book has a key that explains specific abbreviations used in the patterns and remains true to that key throughout the book. (Sadly, this is not the case in all crochet books.) The binding is wonderful because the pages will not tear out, bend, or crease. This book would be a great gift by itself. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, with graphic pictures, using higher end yarn, and not too much stress learning intricate stitches, this book is perfect.

This book fails to give complete photo's of the projects, and the directions leave much to be desired. If you are new to crochet stay away. I had bought this book based on the reviews, I am an experienced crochet artist and I was confused on the first project. these directions are not easy to follow and the book would be greatly enhanced by either diagrams or photos of the more complicated turns and ideas in the book. If you are experienced and are good at improvising you can do this book. the only good thing I can say is the spiral binding makes it easy to carry along.

So easy! This really got me a head start on all my crocheting friends. I had 2 throws done in a couple weeks after first picking up this fabulous hobby, and both throws were from this book. Great!

PREAMBLE: I found some wonderfully colored extra bulky yarn, and wanted to quickly create a throw for a bedroom I'm redecorating. Trolling the internet for free patterns, I found very predictable...dare I say "boring"... patterns that met my criteria. A link from a Ravelry.com user brought me to this book and, after browsing through the available online pages, I was (to use a little crochet humor) totally hooked.

REVIEW: I purchased "Hooked Throws" specifically for the "Big Waves Throw" pattern, which can accommodate the yarn I wanted to use, along with a quick-working P- or Q-sized hook. The resulting look is colorful and far from ordinary. The stitches for the throw are basic, yet result in a very elevated look. I found the price reasonable, too, considering the book includes 20 projects using a variety of techniques (my local yarn shop charges $4 or more for single patterns), as well as a clear and concise glossary I can reference as a refresher, if needed. I also appreciate the spiral binding, which allows the book to lie flat when open. The shipping was lightning fast and the product was in perfect condition.

I recommend this book because the patterns are simple and the photos are complete in detail which makes it possible to count the stitches based on the photos alone. I do not agree that the yarns used are "easy to find", nor are they inexpensive. Nevertheless, if you want a finished project that looks as wonderful as the picture, purchase the correct yarn and enjoy making it.

Hooked Throws: 20 Easy Crochet Projects

This "how to" book is fantastic and very easy to read and understand! I only wish it were entirely spiral bound so it lays flat and takes up less room. Great photos in this book as well. I would easily recommend it.
