Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From Booklist
"A familiar name in needleworking takes her latest bow with a book joining The Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques (2006) and 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans (2005), among others. Eaton works her expert magic in compiling a jam-packed, every-page-worth-perusing reference that even experienced crafters will return to again and again. Who could resist 'Fix It' panels, featuring solutions to such problems as yarn that catches on plastic hooks and recycling swatches into potholders? Or the 'Try It' columns that shows a variety of decorative options. The 'insider secrets' angle extends to all seven chapters, starting with the anatomy of a crochet hook and concluding with the best tips on dealing with thick yarn ends and blocking. Design ideas, completed swatches, and step-by-step instructions, most illustrated with great color photographs, add even more value to a soon-to-be-treasured and well-worn publication. Appended are working guidelines, size charts, stitch symbols, American/English teminology, arrangements of symbols, standard laundering symbols, conversions, equivalent weights, categories of yarn, gauge ranges, and recommended hook sizes, along with a "fold out this flap," featuring a ruler, hook sizes, and crochet abbreviations."

    This is a most excellent book for learning to crochet!

    This is a most excellent book for learning to crochet! I decided to teach myself to crochet and found this book. After reading several books on crochet, I depended on this one. It provides illustrated, easy instructions on many crochet stitches, as well as how to read a pattern. I also found other useful tips. This is especially good for beginners but can be used by the experienced also.

    Great gift.

    I don't have too much to say about this book because I bought it as a gift. I bought it for my mom who loved it. So, if you know someone who likes to crochet, he/she will probably love it too.
