Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Night Before Christmas in Crochet: The Complete Poem with Easy-to-Make Amigurumi Characters (Kindle Edition)
I found this book whilst searching for Christmas themed crochet books for Kindle. Finding only 2 I purchased both and I have not been disappointed with my purchase. I almost didn't purchase this one due to the negative reviews, so pleased I did! I hope my review will help in some way as it is a great book.
This book does have charts, the author takes care to explain the symbols used, I.e. X = DC(UK) SC(USA). With each chart is a table detailing the row number how many stitches per row and how many stitches have been increased or decreased during that row. I found it easier to understand the charts by seeing how
many stitches are in row one, completing those, marking my last stitch, then reading the next row, and continuing through all rows. The charts are spiral as the technique used does not join with a slip stitch, but once the first i.e 6 stitches have been worked, the next stitch is worked into the first stitch at which point the simple spiral chart makes sense.
charts also include colour guides indicating change a of colour. To help further there are very detailed photos explaining all techniques used and photos showing the placement of each component of every model. There is a clear detailed guide to help make a reindeer. At the beginning of each model are clear detailed instructions explaining how to make up each character.
Definitely a springboard to sparking the imagination and getting the creative thoughts flowing!
Just thought I had better say I do not know the author or publisher, just a very satisfied customer.
