Better for beginners...
on 10 September 2013
I subscribe to Mollie Makes and was looking forward to lots of lovely crochet patterns that aren't available elsewhere.
The problem with this book is that half of the book is dedicated to techniques, some basic, some a little bit more fancy, but if you have been crocheting for any length of time, you will know the majority of these tips anyway. It's also easier to learn techniques from video then it is learning from a book.
The patterns are more general household ones (such as mats and blankets) there's a shame there aren't any clothing patterns etc. The designs are more fun than useful unfortunately so I am a bit disappointed because MM usually has really nice crochet patterns.
