I didn't use this book to teach myself to crochet. I'd already learned that from "1-2-3 Crochet: Beginner's Guide." But I did find some cool, simple projects to improve my skills, and this book first taught me tapestry crochet.

This was the book that finally taught me how to crochet correctly. I am a very visual-oriented person, and I dislike text-only crochet patterns and instruction. I found this book very easy to follow, with diagrams on all the basic and some of the not-so-basic stitches. There is a great tutorial on tunisian crochet/afghan stitch as well. The patterns in this book are CUTE, I've made the Sweet-Pea Shawl, the 'Lil Monkey Blanket, and the Skullholders, all of which turned out exactly like the instructions said, and were easy!

I highly recommend this book!

The beginning instructions in this book are great but the patterns range from some being impeccably written to others that are a little sloppy. If you are middle-aged (like me), some of the projects are quite silly and juvenile looking but there are a few here that any woman can wear proudly. I do find it strange that the author, who is not in the 18-35 demographic, is writing a book that caters to that population specifically. Well, whatever makes her a few bucks, I guess. She's kinda goofy because she tries a little too hard to be on the edge but she definitely knows her stitching and that's what counts! Oh, and every crocheter should know how to make a doily. Just a note for all of you crafty young women: men are quite impressed by doilies, especially if they watch you making it.
