    A good reference book Its breadth is surprising, yet it has enough depth that I learned how to do a couple of things better that I ve been doing for a long time It includes a brief history and the usual information about hook types and sizes It does not try to teach you about yarn It covers basic stitches and techniques including working in BLO, increase decrease, chainless foundations, front back posts, invisible join, etc Does not include magic circle, standing stitches, and some other techniques I d expected It also explains how to read written instructions and charts It explains gauge and how to check it The section on details and finishing techniques includes 5 types of seams for joining pieces, how to insert a zipper, and a few ways to finish edges What I found especially helpful here is the couple of paragraphs on picking up stitches for borders I needed that There is a section of stitch patterns It s well organized and includes both written instructions and charts It includes the skill level associated with the pattern As is normally the case, the patterns assume you will work back and forth on a flat rectangular piece Sometimes you can tell from the chatted instructions how whether you can work it in the round or shape it, sometimes not The section on edgings an trims similarly leaves it up to you to figure out how to turn a corner if you need to do that But now I m starting to see one of the big advantages of understanding how to use charts it helps with that I love motifs, and there is a section on those too Some are good practice or building blocks for larger 2 d projects A few could be used as appliqu s There are a number of flowers and leaves There are short sections on specialized techniques such as Tunisian, Bruges, and freeform Enough to pique your interest and a pattern to try it I thought I was an experienced crocheter, but I often found the instructions for unfamiliar techniques and patterns rated experienced difficult to follow additional photos would have been helpful.

    As a reference book for intermediate to advanced crocheters, I think this is a great resource There are large and detailed color pictures of all the stitches it covers The various types of stitches are logically and well classified and include both the standard written directions as well as using standard symbolic diagrams for the stitches.There are some patterns in this book as well as explanations for finishing multi piece projects.This is one reference book I will seriously consider adding to my collection in the future if my crocheting skills continue to advance at the same rate as they have over the past ten years I m still a pattern person but I can foresee a time when I could begin designing my own pieces and this book would be a great help in doing so.

    As a beginner of crochet, this book is absolutely amazing It has stitch variety than I ve encountered before There are directions for every stitch type that are easy to follow There is even the occasional pattern for a project using a stitch pattern previously described My favourite feature of this is the pictures I can get an idea how the stitch looks without having to do it myself first There is so much for me to explore in this book that I really can t decide where to start The one thing I wish this book had were ideas on how one could use each stitch The examples are all given for flat, squares I can easily make washcloths, scarves or afghans, but am clueless as to what else I suppose that would come with experience, though.

    I hate to give this book a less than great rating because I use it all the time The diagrams are great although I had not intended to teach diagrams to my students so early in my course The written directions however were filled with errors I guess the typesetters and editors weren t stitchers.

    Interesting stitches and techniques that I haven t yet seen in books but have seen online CHARTS and written patterns, lovely big photos Seems quite comprehensive in presenting different stitches However, would have liked about the finishing details, mechanics, etc. on crocheting Great book to have as inspiration for projects.

    I really like this one As a beginner, the directions and photos are very easy for me to follow I ve tried several crochet books from the library and I keep comic back to this one The only thing I d change is the size It s big and I have to set something on the book to hold it open I d really prefer it around 8 tall with a spiral binding so it would be easier to carry around.

    I m trying to teach myself how to crochet, so I can t really rate this book in good conscience I stink at trying to teach myself anything from a book others might fare better than me I think anyone who has the basics down will find this book inspiring, as there are loads of pretty stitches to try and lovely motifs to make Lovely pictures.

    It seems great, but since I don t know how to crochet, I ll have to work with it in depth to know for sure I m am avid knitter, so it will be fun to pick up a new skill The introduction goes over a lot of basic steps, and it seems like everything else is very detailed This book was also given to me by a friend who works for the publisher, but this review is my own opinion.

    Borrowed this book from a friend and have probably held on to it a little 2 long because I am constantly using it Easy to read directions and interesting stitch patterns Learned to make a 4 leaf clover and other neat motifs
