Crochet basics book,
This review is from: Learn to Crochet: Clear stitch diagrams and instructions. 20 simple projects to make (Paperback)
"Learn to Crochet" is a wonderful book of crochet basics. It is 80 page, beautifully illustrated and, in my opinion, would make a great gift.
I always wanted to learn to crochet but didn't have a teacher. I tried to crochet some edgings using this book and they turned out quite fine.
This book teaches about yarns and threads, hooks types and sizes, holding crochet hook, holding yarn, making a loop, foundation chain, basic stitches, double crochet, half trebles, treble crochet, tension, working from patterns (chrochet abbreviations and terminology UK/US explained), working in rounds, working fillet crochet, simple crochet edgings, gallery of projects (how to make pot holder, circular cushion, striped cushions, colourwork bags, treble crochet scarf, string bag, coin purse, scallop cushion, scarf, cotton afghan, wool aghan, lacy cushion and christmas decorations).
It is really a beginner's crochet book, very simple, very attractive, informative and I like the simple projects at the back (I only would crochet simple things). Recommended.
