Basic stitches wrong, 18 Feb 2012
I picked up this book with the hope of learning to crochet and had high hopes due to the lovely images.
Unfortunately, one of the most basic of crochet stitches (the double crochet) is incorrectly described in this book. I couldn't understand why my pattern didn't look like the image until I showed a friend (who is very experience in crochet) and and he realised that the instructions in the book are wrong. One of the steps is missed out, and what they describe as the method for double crochet is actually the single crochet stitch.
I cannot vouch for the rest of the book, as I will no longer be using it. A book that gives instructions for the most basic stitch incorrectly is best avoided.
