5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect introduction to crochet, 22 Nov 2010
This review is from: Not Your Mama's Crochet: The Cool and Creative Way to Join the Chain Gang (Paperback)
Originally I bought Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots, and More, one of those cute books showing you how to crochet amigurumi monsters. As a complete newcomer to crochet I found it quite difficult and so a friend recommended I try 'Not Your Mama's Crochet' as a starting point.

Amy Swenson's guide is crochet is fantastic - told with a sense of humour the tips and instructions on how to create basic stitches and more complex patterns were just what I needed. With lots of plain, easy-to-understand diagrams I was on my way to crocheting my first amigurumi zombie in no time. I use the book as a handy reference guide every time I come across something new and it hasn't let me down yet - for a beginner it is perfect.

The book has tried (admirably) to include fashionable patterns for clothing and accessories and almost achieved it - most of the items can be easily customised to suit your taste anyway.

I found this book so useful that I went on to buy others in the series - Not Your Mama's Knitting: The Cool and Creative Way to Pick Up Sticks (Not Your Mama's Craft Books) and Not Your Mama's Beading: The Cool and Creative Way to String 'em Along (Not Your Mama's Craft Books)
