4.0 out of 5 stars slightly strange, but interesting book, 22 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 101 Double-Ended Hook Stitches (Annie's Attic: Crochet) (Paperback)
This is a rather peculiar book, in that it jumps straight in with the patterns and has almost no text that might explain how this kind of technique came about or what the specific characteristics of the resulting fabrics are. What it's short on in the way of overall perspective, it makes up in superfluous text in the patterns, where in every single pattern it reminds you to go back to the beginning to learn the basic stitch, for exapmle. So the thoughts behind its editing are a bit mysterious to me. Also, the yarns used seem to be different colours of the same yarn, and with some of them the colours make it difficult to see the pattern in front of a white background. So the yarns choices are not exciting. Having said that, the book does contain quite a lot of nice stitch patterns, from dense to lacy, and even though their properties (such as stretchiness, drape, rolling up, etc.) are not described at all, they look interesting enough that I'm sure I'll make quite a few of them, once I've found (or made myself) a suitable double-ended crochenit needle. They seem to be unheard of in UK yarn shops so far.
