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 ten or so in all. What makes these patterns great for a beginner is that they are written for a beginner. Anyone who has looked at a typical crochet pattern will know what I mean. While I am starting to get used to the way patterns are written, it sure took some time and practice before they stopped looking like they were written in a foreign language. This book however writes out the steps using very little abbreviations but just enough to help you get used to seeing them.

Also, this book is written in a way that is targeted for teens. It is apparent in the way that the author uses "cool" language (do teens even say 'cool' anymore?) and tries to make crocheting sound like a fun and hip thing to do. While a little annoying at times, it was refreshing compared to other books I've looked at that didn't seem to have any tone of voice at all. And, while the projects themselves are aimed towards teens, there are quite a few of them that I want to make for myself!
