Fun book great tips a wonderful resource for crocheters. I m not quite sure how I feel about this book My expectations were really high considering what I hear of her class but the book seemed to lack something Most of the tips in the book were not new to me I m not a beginner so maybe that is why but there were some tips in the back of the book that I found interesting and will try to use mainly with gauge and sizing of garments. Toss Lily Into Your Project Bag And Bring Her Stitching Savvy, Troubleshooting Techniques, And No Frills Know How Wherever Your Crocheting Takes You Every Crocheter, From The Newest Beginner To The Most Versatile Expert, Needs An Accessible Technique Guide And Who Better To Compile One Than Lily Chin The Author Of Four Hugely Popular Knitting And Crocheting Manuals, A Veteran Teacher, And One Of The Fastest Crocheters In The World Lily Chin S Crochet Tips Tricks Compiles Than Of Her Best Techniques Some Collected From Her Regularly Sold Out Classes, Many Never Seen Before Into One Comprehensive, Pocket Size Guide This Book Is Filled With Simple Solutions To Every Crocheter S Pet Peeves, As Well As Nonstandard Approaches To Some Of The Biggest Crocheting Bugaboos At The End Of It, You Ll Be Left With One Satisfying Question Why Didn T I Think Of That From The Hardcover Edition Perfect for anyone starting out in crochet The diagrams and instructions are very easy to follow Goes from the very beginning of how to hold your needle and start your first chain, to things you ll need to know to follow a pattern, and finally all the finishing techniques you could want Great to refer back to as you re working through your first or 101st pattern. I really like this book as a good reference for different yarn size classifications systems, repair advice, stitches and finishing tips, among other things It is a book I always have in my crochet bag now. Not an interesting read, but full of helpful tips for all those crocheters out there I ve seen many of the tips in other sources, but it s nice to have them all in one compact volume, especially for people like me who take long breaks from crocheting and need some refreshing now and then. Great book, well written and many AHA moments I like it and I will re read it. Beginner or in need of a memory jolt this is a quick refresher Definately a great reference book So glad my crochet teacher this introduced me to this resource book. Advertised as a book for beginners to experts I found it quite lacking It may be an excellent book for those starting out but does not really offer much for those who know their way around a hook I found the formatting of the pages quite off putting Why soooo much space in the margins and cram the text right next to the spine As well some real photos would have been nice. www.2thepointbooks.blogspot.comWhenever I m not reading, I m crocheting And I love it It keeps my hands busy while I watch a movie, you know, instead of eating ice cream or popcorn or some such I call it my Crochet Diet So I try to check out any book that will help fuel my yarn addiction I thought this book fit that bill.Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed with it Although this book contains a few good tricks, if you ve been crocheting for a while at all, they aren t that great Plus the writing is way too verbose and technical.More pictures are needed And not the drawn ones, either Real photographs are the way Especially beautifully photographed ones.I ll keep looking.
