I received this book through Goodreads first reads giveaway.

This is a beautiful book. The crochet trim instructions are for beginner to advanced. They are easy to follow instructions that also include pictures (in color) and diagrams (also in color). There is a crochet refresher course which is helpful for beginners or anyone who has not picked up a crochet hook for a while.

I am left-handed and have not always been able to translate instructions for crocheting left-handed. This book is easy for

I won this book through Goodreads First Reads and am excited to keep this as a resource for future projects.

This book is a great resource for people of all levels looking to complete some new projects and try new crochet challenges. I like that the book provides a brief review of stitches and crochet basics as well. All the patterns, even the advanced ones, are understandable and clearly wri

I received this book from a Goodreads Giveaway. This is a great little book. The edgings are beautiful. I showed it to a co-worker. She immediately bought a copy and has done some of the edgings.

So many beautiful trims with difficulty levels that seem appropriate . I hate when books say easy and it should say hard. It even starts with a quick lesson in crochet, just in case you have forgotten how to do it and need a refresher.. I will enjoy using these trims.

I don't do trims on linen or clothes, so what am I doing with a book like this? Well, they're so beautiful! And they make fabulous necklaces for the granddaughters.
