**Written in US terminology - you'll want to have your conversion chart to hand when you start this booklet.

Beginner bonus - no rounds!

Real learning takes practice but this booklet does give a doable one day beginning steps to filet crochet. I found it easiest for me to learn by reading the entire booklet then going back with the hook and thread to actually do the lessons - and then practice, practice, practice! I made several swatches 6X6" of each stitch taught (chain, single, double, triple, and double triple - you'll need your terms conversion chart here) and that work took me three days because handling those tiny hooks took some time to become comfortable with. The book has 9 lessons to introduce the stitcher to the art and techniques, then moves onto project.

Reading the patterns also takes some getting used to - best thing is to just get stuck in and do it. I did a lot of do-overs, lol, but then it all did click in and my first finished project wasn't a total disappointment. There are seven progressively more challenging projects, looking forward to moving on once I get that first project to a satisfactory finish:)

This is a good book to use to learn the basics of filet crochet and I'm glad to have it.

A fantastic little booklet full of lovely timeless designs, easy to read text and understand diagrams. Definitely a good buy whether your a beginner to filet or a pro.

I already knew how to crochet but the instructions are very clear with great illustrations. Really good for learning to crochet as well as understanding how to follow filet patterns

Good starter book and instructions very clearly explained and displayed.

Was disappointed, however, with the patterns included. Would only attempt one or two.
