Perfect if your starting out!, 3 Sept. 2011
This book has literally taught me to crochet. 12 months ago i was just picking up my crochet hooks, and now i can crochet most patterns i pick up!
It has good descriptions and illustrations, and a very comprehensive how to at the start of the book, which you can keep refering to as you work on the projects. Also, the projects are beautiful! Its nice to find a book that has very basic patterns for things you would actually want to make and use.
I would just like to add that although i believe this book is indispensible for beginners, (and have lent it to all my newbie friends)A good video or tutorial will most probably be needed, indeed even as an improver, if i find a stitch im unsure of i always look for a video guide for clarification. No fancy DVD's needed, just type what your looking for help with in good old youtube and you will find plenty of helpful vids!
Good luck with this beautiful hobby!
