This book has very straightforward and easy to understand descriptions of techniques. I would recommend it as a reference more than for the patterns. I love the color photos of each step. It would help a beginner and serve as a reminder of various techniques for those like me who don't crochet often. I was disappointed that it didn't describe making granny squares. The patterns are geared more towards teens.

Good book for beginner crocheters. Covers all the basics about crochet hooks, yarn, reading patterns, and the basic stitches of slip knot, chain, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. Illustrations and photos are excellent. There are some patterns for the beginner which might appeal to the kids who are definitely the audience of this book, though some of the items seem a little dated. Great book for someone just learning to crochet.

actually to remember to check out for hannah. It's an easy to understand book without looking too dowdy or childish..She is hard to please so this one is a keeper. Of course she can't craft anything *I* do!

This book is really helpful if you want to learn to crochet. The pictures and instructions are easy to follow. I successfully made many of these patterns for gifts, and they were well received.

I wanted to use this book to get Alyssa interested in crochet. She can finger crochet well and is starting to use a hook. The instuctional pictures are ok but the patterns didn't catch her interest.
