This book arrived today and it is fab! Loads of beautiful patterns that all have been skill graded so there's something for everyone here. From easy (or a quicker make for the more experienced) to more difficult patterns, in a variety of styles and stitches, and a variety of yarns that are not attributed to a sole supplier - makes finding an alternative easier when you know you need DK weight or Aran weight. The styles are bold bright, subtle, modern, traditional.. I cannot wait to get stuck into this but which pattern to choose! 😊
I paid less than four pounds for this book and I think at this price it is a bargain.
It is written in UK terms and has written instructions only, no charts (shame but none of the patterns look too complex so I think it's OK).
I really like the variety and amount of "tips" that are given throughout the book. They are great pointers for beginners and even though I'd consider myself an advanced crocheter they are great reminders of simplifying your work.
I agree that some of the projects are a bit dated however I don't mind that at all. There is a large variety of stitches and ideas in this book that already inspired my crochet brain. I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to my next project.
I don't regret my purchase so far!
