I only had an inkling as to how to crochet before I purchased this book. Now I can crochet beautiful baby booties, doilies, needle cases, baskets, and cell phone cases. I am using what I have learned from the book to create my own patterns.

This book includes wonderful color photo graphs of the projects in addition to very detailed instructions, which include step-by-step written instructions (in plain English) as well as a to-scale stitch diagram for each project.

There are two projects (a circ

I had paged through this at Barnes & Noble when I was in MA in July, and it really caught my eye. As with many craft books, I got it through the library so I could look through it more closely, and try to figure out if it was something I liked enough to put on my wish list.

While there were a lot of cute projects here, and the photography and layout was very appealing, there was nothing new for me. I already have Erika Knight's Simple Crochet, which is comprised of projects for the home. Whi

I borrowed this book from the library mostly to get a primer on how to read Japanese crochet patterns, which are chart-based and not written out. The projects in the book are simple, everyday objects for the home, such as potholders, placemats, phone holders, which would make cute little presents.

A really good beginner's book to lace crochet. Good diagrams for the patterns and very easy instructions starting from the basics (casting-on, building a chain) all the way to the various stitches needed to make the items.

I've never crocheted (but plan to in the future along with knitting), but this book had such great little projects that I definitely want to get started now. I would definitely add this to my personal library.
