This book has a ton of crochet projects including hats, bags, scarves, baby items, and even amigurumi. We love it and have made multiple projects from it. The cat is the cutest and the pattern is easy enough for young beginners. Wonderful photos! This one to keep.

I got this book a while ago already.
First I thought : What on earth can you make with only one skein in crochet, as it need more yarn than knitting....
Well, did I get a surprise!
So many cute little pattern for only one skein of yarn! Not only hats or scarves, but lace shawls and fingerless gloves, doll clothes and children's clothes and topping it off are some of the cutest felted purses ever. If you would like to know: I am going to make the little felted purse. The one with the leaves applique

I haven't done a lot of crochet lately, because it hurts my hands. I've been doing more knitting. But there are patterns in this book that make me want to get out the hooks again. I'm especially happy to see beautiful, up-to-date patterns for thread crochet, something that had been relegated to doily making in recent years.

There are an abundance of patterns using various weights of yarn and thread, something for everyone, I think, from easy dishcloth patterns to more complicated thread crochet,

As someone who often doesn't have the attention span for larger projects, I have long been a fan of the "One-Skein Wonders" series, edited by Judith Durant and published by Storey. We all have those single skeins of yarn kicking around -- leftovers from another project, perhaps, or expensive yarns we could only justify buying one of -- and these books contain patterns for dozens of items using these small amounts of yarn.

While the other "One-Skein" books have included crochet projects, this is t

When I look for a crochet book, I look for something that would be easy to understand and easy to use.
I am still a beginning crocheter, when it comes to patterns, and I don't always understand the abbreviations.
I am looking for a book to describe the patterns and abbreviations in a way that even a beginner can understand.
I looked through all the patterns first, they seemed easy enough, and even had pictures. Then when I finished looking at the patterns, I looked at the back of the book and foun

Lots of great patterns. I am excited to try them

The instructions are easy to follow and there are many patterns that I would like to try. The projects are broken down by yarn weight and that makes finding patterns to match my stash easier

I was given this book by Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.
I believe you would call my crochet expertise level intermediate at best.
Because of this, so my times I see crochet pattern books that are just so above my me.

That cannot be said of this book. So many patterns, my little pile of yarn is surely going to dwindle, I want to make all of them!! And I believe with these easy to follow patterns that I would be capable.
I am going to have so much fun with my hooks and this book!!

There are some really great patterns here. I especially liked the baby booties that you can see on the cover. They turned out great! The book was well laid out, so even on an e-reader I was able to navigate it.

This has a nice collection of smaller crochet projects. There are color photos for every project and the instructions seem to be nice and clear (I haven't actually made anything out of it yet). ...more

Some good ideas; more pictures would be helpful

There are some neat patterns in here, but I felt like some of the more complex ones (especially the amigurumi) really needed some process photos included to show attachments of different pieces, details, etc., rather than just one or two photos of the finished piece. However, I'm also more used to reading ami-specific patterns and books, and this collection was mainly more "traditional" crochet items (hats, scarves, baby clothes, etc.), so maybe th

Very nice collection of patterns with clear instructions. A number of the patterns depends as much on the specific yarn as the stitch pattern, so the book may not age well. That being said, there are several patterns I'll be adding to my Ravelry queue :) ...more
I think this will warrant a re-read when I'm more accomplished with crochet. Some very cute projects but I couldn't sort out the patterns. Time will tell if the fault is in the pattern writing or the pattern reading. ...more

I love this book, well written includes both patterns and diagrams, which is helping learn to read the diagrams. I have a couple favorite patterns. Tha patterns are all easy. The book is well organized by yarn weight. One of my favorite go to books.

Some cute things I will definitely try to do! Learning to crochet is fun, but I need a tutorial on how to successfully read the patterns.

Not super on Kindle. The black and white and smaller format is not conducive to crochet inspiration. I will get the physical copy from the library. Lots of great patterns here for sure!
