I bought this book as an absolute beginner to crochet. The pattern ideas in it are lovely and the yarn has been easy to find online. The stitches are explained with diagrams at the beginning, however I didn't find them easy to follow. I had to look up how to double crochet online as I didn't understand the explanation in the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars not for veggies, 2 Oct 2012
I like this book but I felt like it didn't really cater for vegetarians (I'm not one but I don't like to eat too many meaty meals) - On the Feedzone book website they point out how many vegetarian recipes there are. Actually there are only one or two main meals. You could substitute meat with quorn or something similar for some recipes but not all. Otherwise I thought it was good, with interesting snack ideas.
