5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crochet One-Skein Wonders: 101 Creative Projects (Paperback)
This book is full of really attractive and useful items that use one skein or less of yarn. It is American, so uses slightly different crochet terminology to British. Don't let that put you off though if you can already crochet the British way as it's not vastly different. Although the projects are small and uncomplicated it's not the best book for a complete beginner as it doesn't include explicit stitch diagrams as some books do, but the patterns are very manageable once you have had some basic experience. A great value book (101 patterns works out at under 10 pence per pattern), but the best thing is just about all the patterns are ones you would actually like to make and not just to pad the book out to fit the title!

Julie. The problem is that the terminology is similar enough to be confusing to beginners especially if they didn't have any warning when they were buying the book that any difference in terminology existed. This happened to me when I taught myself. I learnt the right stitches and terms initially, but then I came across slightly different terminology in a US book and interpreted it wrongly. Discouraging. The stitches are identical, however the terminology used is not. A US single crochet is a UK double crochet, US double crochet is UK treble, and so on right through. The term 'single crochet' is not used in Britain.
