With that in mind, this is an amazing book. Drop stitch for crochet does involve two handed dexterity, because at one point in the process the crocheted stitches are transferred to a knitting needle held in the left hand. The instructions for this are clear and simple and make the process look easy - though I am certain it is not, especially for crocheters not used to working with both hands.
The drop stitch pattern is shown in several variations and the projects range from easy to advanced. I am most attracted to the cover sweater, but I am a person who likes technique books rather than projects. This book provides both - and that is a valuable balance. Those who want to learn the techniques and variations and then design their own projects can do so. Those who want to practice their skills under the direction of a project can do that too. Far too many books lose this balance.
Yarn weights are given and substitutions could be easily made. The instructions, photos and diagrams are clear and cover visual and auditory/reading learning styles. There are no hints given for left handers, but these are left out of almost every book.
All in all a nice little pamphlet book that introduces an obscure technique variation in a clear, comprehensive and attractive manner. A winner.
So I give it a 5 star rating. You'll be hard put to pick which design you want to try first!
