Looked nice to me, but I don't know a darn thing about crocheting. Still giving it 5 stars though, for the sister-in-law, since that's how it's sounding so far.
Overall, Simple Crocheting is a comprehensive introduction and guide to learning to crochet. From learning about tools and yarns, to learning the basic stitches, to reading patterns and putting these accumulated skills to use creating well-chosen projects, clearly labeled by skill level, Simple Crocheting is an excellent Workshop text.
While this text is great for beginning crocheters, it offers challenging projects for the experienced, as well as providing tips for chores like seaming motifs, and how to work into spaces and in the round. I've been crocheting for three decades and found information I could use to improve some of my techniques.
I plan to use this text to teach pre-teens to crochet, to test its efficacy.
