Not impressed. Lack of illustrations, and the patterns seemed quit unimaginative - ie lots of belts and bookmarks. The paper and book binding are poor quality and probably won't last long. Also not clear from the online description that this is an American book, so stiches are different from English stitches

What a fantastic book! I wanted to be able to crochet and had searched a lot online for tutorials. Very often this book came up in my searches. It is beautifully clear and easy to follow. The print is clear and everything is well illustrated. It is very clearly written. So far I have made a scarf and a jumper and I am feeling quite chuffed with myself, thanks to this brilliant book.
