Join the clique of the Chicks with Sticks!

Anyone can do it. Anyone. Stop thinking. Stop being afraid. Stop sweating, you’ll get the hook all damp. Yes, with the help of the Chicks with Sticks, anyone can learn to crochet in just a weekend—and by Sunday night, beginners will know what they’re doing and have the confidence to do it. Advanced beginners (the ones who have already made an afghan square) will have fresh, fashion-forward projects to wear around town. First up is an introductory section on tools and materials. Then the Chicks present a series of lessons that each introduce a new skill and patterns that help readers learn and master it before moving on. The more than 30 projects range from cool belts to stunning scarves, from felted bags to stylish wraps and sweaters. Throughout, the Chicks with Sticks are standing by with quips and anecdotes, support and sisterhood. Learning to crochet has never been so entertaining . . . and so empowering!

Good for beginners. Not for advanced. Please remove all the non reviews, they are not helpful.

This is a great book to learn from, when used inconjunction with resources from the internet (like Ravelry, Annies Attic, Youtube). The patterns are easy to follow and are actually things you'll want to make. I think the best part of this book is that they teach you a skill, and then immediatly give you a pattern so you can practice. Worth buying if you're wanting to jump in and learn quickly!
