Not a good choice for beginners

The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet has a wealth of interesting stitches and a few interesting projects. For someone more experienced in crochet, I would recommend it simply for the number of different stitches it has, and would help you plan projects on your own. But it is not a very good reference for beginners. I am not a complete novice, but I still had to find a more remedial book so I could figure things out. Also, the organization is lacking. Easy, intermediate and experienced stitches are all mixed together, even within sections, making it difficult if you are trying to find stitches that match your experience level. Also, the projects are scattered throughout the book, with at least one project 20 pages before the stitch you have to use is shown. Overall, I still find it interesting, but I may have purchased something different.

    GREAT book for crocheters!

    This book is invaluable. I have been crocheting for over 20 years and I still have to look things up occasionally. What a resource! And, for the beginning crocheter, I would imagine you could learn to do anything if you had this little honey on the shelf.

    Highly recommended

    This is a "must have" for anyone who crochets. The instructions are easily read and include basic stitches, as well as, more complicated ones. A wonderful gift idea.

    Great book for Beginners and experienced crocheters

    with in this book there are great examples, photos of swatches that can be applied to about any project you want to do. Some people learn by seeing and some by reading and you have both in this book.They way it is written I do believe you could learn just by reading her instructions..A great hand me down to grand kids..

    You get what you pay for.

    I've been crocheting for a little over a year, and I must say that I would not be at the level of crocheting that I am without this book. The instructions are easy to read, and there are patterns, projects, and motifs at every level.

    I Highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to crochet!

    A must have whether you're a beginner or experienced crocheter.
    Great photos with plenty of detail for all types of stitches; from single, double, half double to the more difficult motifs.
    A five star two thumbs up from me!
