Product Description

Review

For anything you have ever wanted to know about crochet, this book is the complete manual for the beginner right through to the advanced crocheter. Covering every aspect of crochet, from holding the hook to the more complicated stitches and techniques, it is set out in a user-friendly format with more than 1200 pictures to help you. I never knew there were quite so many stitches in crochet: puff stitch, popcorns, tubular crochet, filet crochet - they are all here. You'll be inspired and possibly surprised by it all. --Sarah McDonald, Knitting, Dec 07<br /><br />If you have never tried crochet before or are getting bored with granny squares and want to try something more adventurous but lack the technical know-how, this is a book you should consider buying. All the basic techniques (including various ways to hold the hook and yarn) are explained using clear pictures and instructions. Everything you need to know to tackle any project from a table mat to a crocheted garment is included, and plenty more to encourage you to try your hand at the more unusual crochet techniques. The book starts with a short history of crochet and the many forms it has taken since the rise in its popularity during the nineteenth century. There are sections on flat, circular and tubular crochet, hairpin and Tunisian crochet and the delicate and time-consuming forms of Irish & Filet crochet. More unusual techniques such as crochet buttons and entrelac crochet are covered if you want to try something different. Unfortunately, there are no specific projects to make nor are there any instructions for specific crochet patterns but many of the techniques, for example on how to make three-dimensional flowers, could easily be incorporated into any crochet project. If you only want to own one reference book on crochet, this would be an excellent choice. --Journal for weavers, spinners & dyers June 08

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know about Crochet 14 Jan 2010
This is a brilliant book, in fact the entire series of books is brilliant (I have one on knitting and my mum has quilting, various embroidery books etc). The pictures are excellent - very clear, very detailed, with precise instructions on techniques. It covers the basics, holding the hooks, holding the yarn, then moves on to all the different stitches, joining techniques, shaping and so on. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in crochet, whether a beginning or advanced. If you have this book, you can probably teach yourself how to crochet.
