Book Description

9 Jun 2005
All you need to know in one small handbag sized book, packed full of clear stitch diagrams and instructions - plus 20 simple projects to make. "Learn to Crochet" is the only book you will need to learn to create beautiful crocheted garments from your own hook. The book is packed with detailed information on yarns and threads, hook types and sizes, plus step-by-step guidance on holding a hook and yarn, making a loop to basic stitches and much more. All of the teaching sections have clear colour artwork and diagrams, teamed with colour photography of real-life examples of crocheted items, ideal for the beginner. The book also comes with an outstanding gallery of 20 simple projects to make (easy, intermediate and advanced) - with garments for accessories and home furnishings, using gorgeous yarns from Anchor, Coats and Patons: Anchor Magic; Anchor Orion; Anchor Pearl Cotton (No. 5); Coats Aida No. 10 and No. 5; Coats Eldorado; Coats Lyric 8/4; Coats Lyric 8/8; Coats Mercer Crochet No. 20; and, Patons Diploma Gold DK. The delightful projects include: A Treble-Crochet Scarf, which is made with only two yarns despite its multi-coloured look; and a gorgeous String Bag, trimmed with beautiful glass beads - ideal for shopping as it stretches when filled, or to take to the beach on holiday as it squeezes into your luggage! There is also a stunning Scallop Cushion which is quick and easy to make, but the design is classic yet contemporary and would finish off any room with a touch of flair and style. Each project has detailed instructions, a requirements list and tension guide, together with a gorgeous colour photograph of the finished project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supremely easy to follow! 24 Sep 2005
Format:Paperback
Having tried learning to crochet numerous times and just not getting it, I went for this book as it has pictures and seemed really easy to follow. And it was! My aim was to learn to crochet granny squares, and now I can! It has step-by-step guides with pictures, and patterns that get progressively more involved, but never impossible. I would highly recommend this book, and it's very cheap too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crochet basics book 26 April 2009
By A Passer By VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
"Learn to Crochet" is a wonderful book of crochet basics. It is 80 page, beautifully illustrated and, in my opinion, would make a great gift.
I always wanted to learn to crochet but didn't have a teacher. I tried to crochet some edgings using this book and they turned out quite fine.
This book teaches about yarns and threads, hooks types and sizes, holding crochet hook, holding yarn, making a loop, foundation chain, basic stitches, double crochet, half trebles, treble crochet, tension, working from patterns (chrochet abbreviations and terminology UK/US explained), working in rounds, working fillet crochet, simple crochet edgings, gallery of projects (how to make pot holder, circular cushion, striped cushions, colourwork bags, treble crochet scarf, string bag, coin purse, scallop cushion, scarf, cotton afghan, wool aghan, lacy cushion and christmas decorations).
It is really a beginner's crochet book, very simple, very attractive, informative and I like the simple projects at the back (I only would crochet simple things). Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the basics 6 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
I learn to crochet when I was a child, I was taught several stitches but wasn't told about turning chains - hence row after row got wonkier and wonkier. As an adult I wanted a recap and to learn more. There wasn't much available at the time but this little book cropped up. I use it to remind myself of the basic stitches and how many turning chains are needed for each stitch etc (these are things I regularly forget!)I found it delivered the information in a clear way and with good pictures for clarity. It has been the best book for delivering the basics that all crocheters need. It is concise and you will need more but this book will get you to that stage - it won't promise that you can run before you walk, it will get you proficient at the building blocks and then it will be up to you. The projects are not bad. I've given it 5 stars because it concentrates on the important bits and explains them properly and well.
