Awesome Book! 8 Mar. 2008
By Laura C. O'Neal - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I received this book a few days ago, and am still reading through it, because it is packed with so much useful information. Everything from the best stitch patterns for various items, to shaping garments, to selecting yarn, to fixing problems is covered. I love that the book even has a few mini-projects for the reader to try our new techniques. The book is also very well-organized, and the photography is lovely - so bright and clear. Overall it's an excellent book, and a must for an crocheter's library.

A nice reference 18 Jun. 2008
By Blue Lily - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have had this book for several months and I am just now getting excited about it. There are excellent colorful photos on every page, there are a lot of techniques and each step is illustrated well. When I first got this book I was disappointed because I was really hoping that those trade secrets as the title suggests would jump out at me. But, on closer inspection I have found that there are indeed valuable tips on making my crocheted work better. I think this book will help immensely when I feel creative and want to design my own stuff. However, most of the tips are a page or less, and I would have liked to have seen some of them expanded a bit. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who crochets and would like some ideas to spark their creativity.

Nice pictures, not much new. 26 Sept. 2008
By Suzanne R. Arnholt - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very complete book on basic crocheting. It includes a section on dyeing yarn which I have not seen other places. Unfortunately, none of the "trade secrets" are very secret. Most can be found in the Crochet Handbook, which is better sized to take with you and covers foundations other than the chain. Couldn't find those here. Also, many interesting patterns were shown in pictures that were not really explained in the text. A pretty picture book and probably a good read for a new crocheter, but for the more experienced, nothing really new.
