5.0 out of 5 stars Fab! Bright, inspiring and easy ! 12 April 2014
By Fedora
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although these patterns do not include charts/graphs, their explanations are excellent (much easier I find than some of their
English equivalents). The book shows a variety of bobbles, clusters, shells and just a few ripple patterns. For those of us
who enjoy texture and simple patterns, this is great! Bright, colourful photos and easy explanations. It is an american book
using american terminology, but not a problem once you swap the names of stitches.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh - don't like as an e-book 31 Dec. 2014
By Very.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3 stars specifically because I don't think crochet books work very well on kindle. Often the pattern / picture relation is lost because of this format, and, well, I just don't like crochet books on e readers, and I find it harder to find a pattern I want to use in the book.

The book it's self is, however a good compilation of stitch patterns. I'd advise buying the book tho, not the ebook version.

I'll never run out of patterns for anything I want to crochet and having it on my Kindle Fire makes it more convenient to carry around.
