This is an excellent book for beginner crocheters. It starts off teaching you some of the basics to crochet such as vocabulary, explains different yarns, and how to hold your crochet hook. Then there is a small section on some of the very basic stitches. There are step by step instructions as well as illustrations on how to make the stitches. I found that I was able to pick up the stitches right away with little to no confusion. Lastly, there is a section dedicated to some simple patterns, maybe ...more

I am an avid knitter, this is my first time crocheting. I wanted to crochet because there are a few patterns you really cannot find in knitting (like cloche hats, the only cloche pattern I found in knitting was for a super expert, I could only get so far in the pattern before starting over again, which I did, 8 or 9 times). The instructions are pretty good. I thing the written instructions are a little better than the graphics. So far I am over half way through a stripy scarf and then I hope to ...more

Easy to understand for people who are new to crocheting. The only downside is that some of the sections that explain the stitches aren't always clearly named (the section "Less is More" is for decreasing while "On the Increase" is for adding stitches).

The nice thing was that it explains the projects without shorthand, which is good for someone like me who's still learning.

It also contains a handful of easy projects that anyone can do.

Recommended to Lorie by: Found after lots of looking at the library
As a new crochet addict, i have been looking for patterns that are easy and fun, which is a hard combination to find. I have done the hat on the cover and am starting to work on the striped scarf. The intro with stitch and crochet basics will help any beginner. These are also great for people who don't have a lot of time, but want to make fun things for their family and friends. I look forward to trying some of the harder patterns in this book and the other Get Hooked book.

Awesome book for beginner crocheters. Written for teens, but the directions are great and easy to follow, so steal it from your niece if you want to learn! :o) Includes really cool projects, including those to build your confidence and also to challenge you as a new crocheter. I love the book and would give it to any teen or college student who is interested in crochet.

This is now my go-to for how-to! This book helped me teach myself how to crochet and remains my constant friend whenever making new projects. There is nothing like a kids book to help simplify things to my level ;)
