Book Description

1 Sep 2008
Following the success of Kids Learn to Knit, Lucinda Guy and Francois Hall have combined forces again to show young children, from 6 years of age, how to crochet, with the help of Francois Hall s witty animal illustrations: two little mice and a friendly wolf. The book takes children from the very first steps of learning about yarns, to how to make a foundation chain, how to work the basic crochet stitches, such as double, half treble and treble crochet. It explains how to shape crochet and how to work in the round, and how to stitch crochet pieces together. Each stage in the learning process culminates in a simple, brightly coloured project, so young crocheters can test their skills and have fun doing so at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 27 July 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My seven year old son is not a typical example of a child wanting to learn to crochet. He saw the pictures in a copy of Inside Crochet and was desperate to get it-who am I to argue.
He says,"It's got excellent projects. It is very good at teaching you how to crochet because it's quite simple and the pictures have got arrows to show you where the hook and thread go. It teaches you all the basics you'll need to know to do crochet."
I agree with him. I have a shelf full of crochet books but this stands out as fuss free, clearly explained in writing and pictures, which is important as I think crochet is a hands on skill not a reading and comprehension skill!
Peg and Pip are the two mice characters that walk you through (sometimes literally) chain, double, treble, colour changes, shapes by decreasing, circles, troubleshooting, stitching seams, sewing in yarn ends and stitching felt to your projects. The projects use the skills you learn in a fun and attractive way for kids (of all ages!) culminating in the Big project which uses all of the skills learned and is small enough to do in a few sittings.
If you know a crafty child this is definitely for them. If you know a busy or easily intimidated by text book styles adult then this would be as good as any on the market for them to get started. If you want to stop Grandmothers from buying every toy/craft item in poundland every time they visit, then coerce the kids into begging her to crochet something and give her the book otherwise she might pull out that book that's been on the shelf since 1970, with Stephen King like results. It would work equally well on Grandads as only two projects in the book have flowers on or could be construed as 'girlie'. The rest are little toys, which could even be done in black,purple and red, so teenage grunge siblings could even have a go.
A book for just about anyone capable of holding a stick.

5.0 out of 5 stars smashing stuff 29 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
I bought this book after many failed attempts to learn to crochet over the last 20 years, with the intention of giving crochet a final chance and hopefully being able to teach my four year old in future. Success! not only were the instructions and step by step pictures easy to follow and I finally learnt the basics, but my four year old got the bug too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just for kids! 11 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this to learn how to crochet. At 53 I needed new skill and this was one I have yet to master. This book is easy to follow. The projects do take patience, which I still haven't got. However my neighbor's grand daughter mastered this over the school holidays. Hope for me yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really easy way to learn to Crochet!!!!! 8 Dec 2010
By folly
Format:Paperback
This book is fantastic....I am 35! and I love knitting but never tried to crochet before, so this year I bought a couple of beginners books and I was getting really frustrated! So after reading the reviews for this book I decided to buy and give it a go....and guess what?? It is great...I have managed to do everything on the book and have now moved to one of the other book that claimed to be for beginners!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars At last a simple crochet book 13 May 2010
By Velvet
Format:Paperback
I got this the other day as I find adult crochet books complicated and the patterns in the book tend to put me off but this book looked simple and fun. I would prefer something like this for adults as well as I didn't want to do mice etc but I like the circles, squares and bag. Sometimes I think if a 6 year old can do it I can.

I haven't tried any yet but when I do, I will report back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal fo Beginners of any Age 30 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This little book is just what I was looking for as a complete beginner who has kind crochetting friends but forgets what I have learned in about 5 minutes! Here are step by step instructions for everything I need to start crochet and projects to complete as I learn. Once I have mastered the basics I can use it to teach my grandaughter. Clear and fun. Would suit learners from 5 to 105! (I am 52!)

5.0 out of 5 stars I can finally crochet! 4 July 2012
Format:Paperback
When I learned to knit I had a friend to guide me - thank goodness, as I had all the 'learn to knit' books in the world but couldn't seem to learn from the illustrations. I've wanted to get into crochet for a long time now but was failing to pick it up from the standard 'learn to crochet' books on the market.

Then I came across this book and it all clicked! Written for children aged six and older, it really does hold your hand throughout the whole process, taking baby steps along the way. Illustrations are large and very clear, as are the written instructions. The animals are cute too!

What more can I say than this: this afternoon I had no idea what to do with a crochet hook (apart from picking up dropped stitches in knitting!), and this evening I have made a little rectangle of double crochet. Result!
