5.0 out of 5 stars Tunisian Crochet 20 July 2009
By Mrs. F. Huxley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fantastic introduction to Tunisian(Afghan) crochet. The instructions are easy to follow with clear diagrams. Fortunately, this US published book uses some yarns available in the UK (Colinette) and gives hooks sizes in mm. However some yarns and hooks sizes are very difficult to obtain this side of the pond. I have made several items and found the patterns easy to follow and no errors.

This is a beautifully presented book. Basic stitches are shown at the beginning of the book and any new ones are explained at the beginning of the article, the photographs are very clear and instructions are easy to follow. I hadn't tried Tunisian crochet before but I am well on the way to completing my first sweater.Tunisian Crochet: The Look of Knitting with the Ease of Crocheting

I found this book excellent. As I can already crochet this seemed to be the next step and I found the book excellent at explaining the details. The illustrations are well visualised and easy to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent introduction to this technique 17 Feb 2011
By Maria
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A clear introduction to some of the main stitches in this technique with very good photography ,diagrams & written explanations. Added to this are patterns for garments,bags, blankets & cushions-even an ottoman cover. PLEASE would some kind U.S author include a yarn comparison as well as needle size comparison as it is difficult to figure this out sometimes when you cannot get yarns locally very often & need to use on-line services. However, I would recommend this book to anyone having mastered basic crochet for the instructions if nothing else as money well spent.

By Kristin TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had been looking for a while for a book on the subject. The designs are simple and pretty and I may or may not make them, but the instructions on how to actually do tunisian crochet are really clear and simple. The only missing thing was a comparison of the knit/purl to doing this the traditional way with two needles, However I am now armed to try this out for myself and love the idea of being able to knit whilst still work by eye which is the strength of crochet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
Excellent book for a beginner like me. Stitches and technique well explained. However found a lot of the patterns a little old fashioned but over all a good book to start with.
