3.0 out of 5 stars Not for complete beginners..., 4 Jan 2011
I bought this book intending to teach myself to crochet but it does seem to take a certain amount of knowledge for granted. Like Yvonne Kettler I was very surprised to find that the first explanation of how to form a basic chain is followed by a pattern for a cardigan so ridiculously beyond my skill level (with the laughable caption 'make this now'). Some of the other technical instructions probably make sense to experienced crocheters but left me trawling the internet for further help. I imagine this could be an inspiring book for those with experience but for the complete beginner it lacks easy practice projects and clear, systematic instructions to help you progress at a comfortable pace.
