Pretty, but also pretty useless,
This review is from: Creative Makers: Simple Crochet (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having wanted to pick up crochet for a while now I decided that this book was the book for me. Although it is very attractive to look at I did not find it very useful at all. The instructions at the beginning of the book were difficult to understand. There really needed to be more photographs of the process. Instead I looked up what I needed on the internet and am now in the process of making a multicolour granny blanket.
Browsing through the book there are a few very useless projects, like apple and egg cosies. I also would not say that all of the projects were particularly simple. They are also not organised in order of difficulty (each pattern has a handy level guide), which I found a bit frustrating. Perhaps when I am more confident I will revisit some of the projects in the book, but at the moment it is going onto my shelf to collect dust.
