This review is from: The Crochet Answer Book: Solutions to Every Problem You'll Ever Face, Answers to Every Question You'll Ever Ask (Paperback)
I bought this book with high hopes as the equivalent knitting book has had rave reviews from another member of the family. However, I can't give this an unqualified thumbs up. Firstly, if you are a British crocheter the stitches have to be mentally translated as it is an American translation. I find this off-putting, especially when I am trying to pick up something new. Also the table of equivalent hook sizes was incomplete. I have a lot of old hooks with sizes that don't appear. Some of the information is fairly basic. Having said all that, it is a useful addition to my library and I expect I will turn to it when I need advice. So I am not unhappy that I bought it.
