I love the top down construction of her garments and love the fact that there is so little stitching up once the garments are finished.
If you want a 'normal' crochet book then perhaps this one won't be for you but if you have an open mind to try new things then I would recommend as a start to new techniques.
If you belong to Ravelry then there are great forums where you can find help with any problems that you might encounter whilst using any of Doris Chan designs which is something not many other designers take the trouble to do.
I have made 2 items from this book already and the fit and drape of the items is fantastic.
As a inexperienced crocheter I feel Doris has taught me a huge amount with her brilliant informative top down seamless techniques and in this book has introduced me to new techniques such as broomstick, hairpin etc.
Great book it has not disappointed
This book is more teaching technique wrapped up in practically working through a project. It's well worth working through each project, as you glean so much insight as you do it. Doris Chan is very much about making her readers independant and confident crocheters, who are happy to experiment.
Doris is a great proponent of top-down crochet, and lays each project out in a clear and accessible way, with diagrams for visual learners, and excellent and humourous tips and tuition. You can see how one pattern leads into the next pattern, and how adjusting one project creates a lovely variation or a whole new design.
This is pretty much the closest you'll get to a real "design workshop" in crochet. Her book Everyday Crochet is another excellent resource.
I have no idea when I will be able to actually make any of these items, but I've read through it and the instructions are very clear. If you want to learn a new skill, get this book.
Incorporates a variety of crochet techniques, including Tunisian, Hairpin Lace, etc.
Well worth the money spent.
