4.0 out of 5 stars Beware if you are a UK crocheter. 23 Mar 2013
By erl1634
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for beginners, although experienced crocheters will still find it a valuable resource, with some useful patterns, tips and hints. However, beware if you are a UK crocheter as this book uses American terminology. For example, a UK double crochet is a US single crochet. Some of the patterns, especially the motifs and edgings, have diagrams, so no problem if you can follow these, but some patterns are written so you need to be aware of the US terminology here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact but impressive 28 May 2013
By Billie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a small compact book with a lot packed in. As other reviewers have said the fact that the writting is
1. Very small
2. Due to fine font used and at times grey difficult to read.

If you have difficulty with small print this isn't for you. I've since seen Jane Crowfoot's Ultimate Crochet Bible and if I'd realised that was the large format it was I'd have bought that instead.

A good price, not too much jargon, I struggled with no prior knowledge with this book alone but with You Tube and also later a DVD by Wendy Poole got on much better. I have revisited this book and now better understand what it was trying to explain.

If you only want to buy one book to learn crochet, go with Jane Crowfoot's one as it has basics, a better description of symbols and how to read patterns and covers way more. But is more of an investment.

If you are just passing through and don't want to spend too much to get started, and have good eyesight this is still a good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners but needs some correction 2 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover
This book is largely clear and easy to follow with a compendium of techniques and a number of project patterns at the back. The version I have used has the UK crochet terminology not US.

The only real criticism is that the baby blanket pattern has an error and despite checking the publisher's website I've been unable to find anything which has since corrected this mistake. As a relative beginner I followed the pattern without questioning until the shape of the blanket was obviously not correct. I asked some more experienced crocheters (three of them!) to take a look at the pattern and all confirmed the mistake was where I had come to believe it was. This error led to a lot of wasted effort. Obviously if I'd had more experience I would have noticed and adjusted the pattern accordingly!

The problem now is that I am reluctant to trust that the other patterns in the book are correct. It's not practical to have to refer every new project to someone more experienced to check over before I start.

It's a shame that there is this error as I would otherwise rate this book far more highly.
