Not for a complete crochet beginner,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crochet Workshop: Learn How to Crochet with 20 Inspiring Projects (Paperback)
This is my first of Erika's book. Overall I love the photos, the graphics, the gorgeous earthy tones throughout the whole book, the font, the yarns she uses for her projects (expensive to buy though!!!). However the biggest drawback of this book are sketchy drawings - unclear and confusing for someone who is making their first steps in the crochet world. I tried to learn the basic crochet with this book and set out with zest and determination but I failed. I just couldnt make out in the drawings which is a new stitch and which are the old stitches. All seems to be as if sketched with a pencil - it does match the climate of the book but it doesnt help a beginner to learn. I switched to Mollie Makes crochet book with more transparent coloured pictures and I learnt the steps straight away. For this reason I give this book 3 stars. It is lovely in photography terms but at the same time it feels like this book is more about looking good rather than guiding properly.
