Great for experienced crocheters - NOT for novices!
on 26 December 2009
I must state first of all that I am not a knitter, and I was bought this book as a present. I have used it as an ideas book rather than as a follow-the-pattern-slavishly, and that suits me fine as I am comfortable with improvising and adjusting patterns as I go along.
The ideas in the book are great: it leans a bit too heavily towards the knitted patterns, but if you are comfortable with adjusting knitting patterns to suit your own needs as a crocheter, then you will be fine.
I have had this book for nearly a year now, and have used it to make upwards of 10 tea cosies, but I have not followed the pattern throughout for a single one.
To sum it up - a great source book, heavily biased towards knitting patterns, but great for experienced crocheters who want to get ideas.
