Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8 -An attractively designed, sharply photographed cover and excellent organization will attract children and the adults who guide them to these 30 exciting projects. Step-by-step directions take craft enthusiasts from holding the yarn to slip stitches, single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. Advanced stitching and techniques are also explained, as well as differences in hooks and yarns. Each project is listed with skill level, finished size, materials, gauge, stitches and yarn used, instructions, and a vibrant color photo (more than a dozen of which are full page). Precise illustrations also complement the text. Adult assistance is mentioned when using a steam iron or spray starch. Text boxes supply valuable tips on sizing, felting, and more. Back matter includes a metric conversion chart. This title is an excellent addition to most collections, along with Gwen Blakley Kinsler and Jackie Young's Crocheting (Kids Can, 2003) and Kelli Ronci's Kids Crochet (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 2005).-Augusta R.

From Booklist

Gr. 5-8. With knitting so popular, can crochet be far behind? This oversize offering, a good place for kids to begin, has everything going for it. Start with the fact that the book is a pleasure to look at. Fruity colors softening to lighter hues border the white space, photographs are large and crisp, and clever close-ups of the projects are often placed on the text pages. Then there are the projects themselves. Davis clearly knows what kids like: bags, scarves, scrunchies, stuffed animals, a phone carrier. Although the projects favor girls, boys are shown enjoying some of them (and also crocheting). Both visual and text explanations are very clear; abbreviations, tools and materials, and fixing mistakes get plenty of space. This is a must for your craft shelves. REVWR

My daughter has made several items from this book. It has easy to follow instructions. The first projects do not use abbreviations so a person can learn the stitches without having to figure out the abbreviations at the same time.

This is a fun book that my 12 yr old enjoys. Cute ideas for projects for the beginning crocheter. She was thrilled with the book.

A Kid's Review on September 10, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This was the first crochet book I got at the library when I started crocheting. Although the "Introduction" and "Getting Started" sections are pretty good, the actual pattern instructions are very bad. Out of thirty projects the instructions were only clear enough to do one of them, and even then I didn't even do the really complicated extra part at the end. I do like the part at the begining were they talk about yarn and hooks. And the instructions for the different stitches are pretty good. I wouldn't buy this book - I'd just get it at the library, read the "Introduction" and "Getting Started" sections and don't even waste your time trying the projects. Hope this helps!
