Whilst trying to find ideas for my Christmas list I came across this book. From the "look inside" it looked very simple and easy to follow - and believe me, I needed simple and easy to follow!
My mum gave this book to me for Christmas, and determined to learn, I took it away on holiday with me.
This book is indeed very clear. The pictures are nice and large and the book is explained in very easy terms. I couldn't get on with holding the wool or hook properly - I suspect I am too much of an entrenched knitter - but other than that managed everything the book said.
By the second day I had a nice square of double crochet. By the end of the third I'd made a somewhat poor attempt at a granny square (my family teased me mercilessly about it being a granny rhombus!). But my second granny square looked exactly like the real thing and I had it cracked.
Now, just over a month on and I've mad a complete cushion with 16 granny squares, crochet joins and crochet flowers. It looks as though someone who has been crocheting for years has made it (well, to me, anyway!). I'm now in the middle of a huge throw for our sofa and I'm also making a pokemon toy for my daughter. I'm obsessed with crochet.
I never thought I would be able to crochet and now I can, properly. My mum (who could sort of crochet but is really a knitter like me) has also bought this book and is now making amazing stuff too.
It is a simple book - there aren't a huge number of pages or patterns. But if you have been defeated by everything else and want to learn, you could do worse than give it a try.

Just a link to a website - more than somewhat annoying. Not much else to be said really, not impressed.Published 6 days ago by Chrissie C.
This book is great. Clear and simple explanations. It's so good that I have bought copies for both my sisters as they want to learn to crochet too.Published 9 days ago by Amazon Customer
Given as a gift. I've been told it's fairly easy to follow - they do have a knitting background so that may have helpedPublished 14 days ago by A Samuels
Very clear pictures with detailed description. I found it easier to follow through the book than I have off YouTube. Arrived the next day as state. Worth every penny. Read morePublished 16 days ago by happy customer
This book is more of a tiny magazine with basic instruction that I could have found out YouTube. Trust me when I say it's really not worth it.Published 18 days ago by C. Horan
I have bought to use with my granddaughter - but as yet we have not had the opportunity to embark upon a joint project - she will be eight this year!Published 19 days ago by Scribe
