Some good patterns but DISMAL instructions
I am not a beginning crocheter, (about intermediate) and I stumbled over every pattern I thought about doing from this book because the instructions are SO Terrible. If you are doing anything beyond basic sc or dc patterns (kind of the whole point of a pattern book) you will likely be very frustrated. For example I decided to try a Filet Crochet pattern (very simple really) but no where in the pattern did it tell me how to start or even how many to chain. So I searched the beginning part (intructions) to find the answer....15 minutes later I had found out how to make a basic square and how to turn but not how to start. Through trial and error I figured it out and later found a book at the libary on Filet Crochet which explained at the beginning (very simply) that you chain 3st for each square in pattern plus 1. Nowhere did it say that in this book. This is just one example. It has a few good patterns but as it is an exercise in frustration to use any of them I will look for a different book with clear and concise stitch guides and instructions.
