Book Description

10 Feb 2011
Expert crafter Nicki Trench brings you 35 easy-to-follow crochet patterns that will teach you how to crochet. A crochet teacher and author with over 20 years' experience, Nicki has designed a series of patterns that will guide you through those initial stitches to producing beautiful projects incorporating a wide range of crochet techniques. Crochet Know-how explains all the stitches with clear step-by-step artworks and instructions. Next, discover three chapters packed with patterns to improve your skills. First is Starting Out, where you will find a simple springtime throw and a pretty hat for a toddler - you'll be amazed how easy and quick the projects are to create. Once you've mastered these, move on to something more challenging in the Practice Makes Perfect chapter. There are cute gifts for babies and young children, including baby blocks, bibs and blankets, or treat yourself to a pair of gloves in soft double knit yarn or the chunky seashells scarf to keep you warm on chilly mornings. Finally, Confident Crocheting has more advanced patterns, from a family of adorable Russian dolls to the cherub dress with decorative picot stitching.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm keeping this one 18 Feb 2011
I am terrible for buying crochet books because I'm inspired by their cover or a review and then passing them on because really there was nothing that grabbed me. This book is different. I find the photographs inspirational and the patterns easy to follow. The book is divided into 3 sections. Starting Out, which has all the usual diagrams for complete newbies, and then simple projects all of which I'd happily make. I've already done bunting, a round stripy cushion, a bag using small granny squares and wash cloths. The section section 'Practice makes perfect' has 11 projects, again almost all usable. I've done a scarf, baby slippers & plan on at least 4 more. The final section of 9 projects includes bears, a pretty tea cosy, russian dolls & a gorgeous scarf - my next project.
All the recommended yarns are available in the UK. I think all in all Nicki's book does what it says on the cover - 35 adorable, cute & easy projects.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book but a little confusing at times 21 Nov 2011
By bettyb
This was the first Crochet book I bought. As a knitter, I finally decided to branch out into crochet. This book was recommended. I love the patterns. It's very up to date and not at all old fashioned. I love the choice of colours used in the projects as well as the projects themselves. I also found the lay out very easy to read. I did at times have to try a couple of different ways of doing something to work out what it meant (as I am a complete beginner) but after I understood how to read the pattern, it was easy and very enjoyable. One word of warning, I have made a couple of projects and most of them have been fine, however, I found the pattern for the scarf did not work at all. I pulled it apart 3 times then finally asked a lady who is in her 70's and has been crocheting for longer than I've been alive, to find out what I was doing wrong. She couldn't work out where I had gone wrong in the pattern. Finally I decided to follow the picture (and make up my own pattern) rather than the pattern in the book and it turned out really well. That is the only pattern I have had a problem with so far.

Saying that I do love the book and am buying it for my Mum for Christmas (but I will write my pattern into the book for her! lol).

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight 22 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This delightful book is full of gorgeously simple and not quite so simple patterns for producing crochet projects to beautify your home, yourself and any children not yet old enough to run screaming from anything handmade.
The illustrative photographs are shot in a home of such delicious faded splendour that you may well find yourself being able to justify any battered furniture you may own by simply adding a throw or cushion worked from this book.
Highly recommended by Mrs Danvers (who owns much battered furniture).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book with a few typos 12 Sep 2011
This is a great book with some gorgeous crochet projects. One of the reasons I purchased the book was for the baby slippers pattern - beware - this pattern is wrong. After attempting it three times unsuccessfully I checked the authors page for pattern amendments. Once I corrected the typos I was able to complete the project. Despite this, it really is a great book to add to the collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many things to make 27 July 2011
By Buzybee
I've loved this book since the moment I opened it. If I was marooned on a desert island this is one of the books I'd like to have with me ....There are patterns for all abilities & although I am very experienced at crochet it's nice to have easy patterns to make quick items for gifts that look really beautiful when made .... Several of the ladies at my craft group have bought this book since I showed it to them & have been inspired to take up crochet & are already making lovely iteams .... I've made the teddy & it's absolutely beautiful as is the throw I've started on ... Too many projects I'd like to do & not enough time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Prompt and Easy 2 April 2011
I ordered this book for my middle daughter and she loved it. She has taught herself to crochet and is always pleased with books on the subject. She said that the instructions are easy to follow and the pictures look good and make you want to make the things they show.

5.0 out of 5 stars All round appeal 14 Mar 2011
By quercus
I bought this book because I want to make and sell small hand made gifts at local bazzars and craft fairs. It does not disappoint and is full of small and larger projects suitable for beginners and those who have crochet experiance.The instructions are easy to follow and the pictures are well photographed. A must for all those crafters out there.

Some lovely ideas but not truly inspiring. Emphasis is more on projects for people starting crochet, so do consider this if you are a beginner. Read more
