1.0 out of 5 stars Learning to Crochet, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crochet for Beginners who want to Improve: Continue to Learn to Crochet using UK Crochet Terminology (Paperback)
This is an overpriced book and instead of writing it as if it is for pre scool children with "traffic lights", the author should have spent more time explaining things properly.
In the section making chunky socks, the second round tells you to "loop along the back of the foundation chain" thus increasing the stitches to 12 from 6.
A beginner would have no idea what she is on about.
There are far better books, for less money, on the market.
The projects are very kitch as well.
Not a great purchase.

Hi! I am sorry that you have had problems to understand my book & the way it is written. When you refer to the 2nd round of the pattern of Chunky Socks, you may have missed the large green letters that say "NOW FLIP THE FOUNDATION CHAIN SO THAT YOU ARE WORKING ALONG THE BACK OF THE STITCHES THAT YOU HAVE JUST MADE" along with the accompanying photograph that details this quite clearly.
The projects in the book follow a progressive learning curve and are not intended to be "kitch" (tacky???) at all, introducing a new technique etc. as you progress. I am really sorry that you are disappointed in the book where so many others e.g. on Twitter & Facebook & those who have taken the trouble to post a review to date, are singing its praises. I would be more than happy to buy your book from you as you no longer have a need for it. Ali Campbell.
