Nice patterns and pictures, but full of eratta,
This review is from: Vintage Crochet (Hardcover)
I bought this book last week and it looks lovely. It has gorgeous photographs and a good mix of patterns for the home, baby and wearables. However, some patterns do have mistakes in them so check on the internet - just key 'vintage loop crochet errata' into google and it will take you to a site where the corrections are listed. I tried to make the 'lula' bobble scarf, but even I could tell there was something not right and I have only been crocheting for 6 months. I think the patterns could have more information to help the beginner. Overall it is a nice book, but I was disappointed by the errors. I have edited this review as even the eratta page has errors! I have e-mailed the company that published it and have highlighted the errors - I think I will be returning this book.

I've found mistakes too - glaring ones - and they're not even included in the errata section on the Loop website (e.g Sienna headband). Maybe a book for the more experienced crocheter who can work it out properly themselves (but then again, you could probably work it out from scratch if you're that experienced). It's a shame as it's lovely apart from being so frequently wrong!
