This is definitely a must have book for any one who crochets! You can do so much with all these patterns. However, I wish they would've used a better choice of yarn (and color of the yarn) to display the samples. Maybe something more vibrant so it's easier to see. Other than that, this book is great!
This is a very helpful book BUT if you are going to use any of the patterns I strongly suggest NOT to use the ebook version. BUY THE PAPER BOOK. When I am using a pattern I take the pattern with me to where I am going to crochet. CAN NOT DO THIS WITH THE EBOOK and this is only usable in the NOOK STUDY APPLICATION. and when I called customer service regarding why I could not print a page to take the pattern with me I was told that it is copyright violation to print a page for my own personal use even tho I PURCHASED A COPY. And the Barnes employee on the live chat was also very rude and condescending. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER EBOOK FROM BARNES AND NOBLE. Signed dissatisfied customer in Georgia
this book will give you new take on various stitches that can beused in making hats,pet mats, rugs, clothing and home decor. this best part is learning utilizing the chart pattern which shows you if you make a single crochet or another stitch.it helps you grow as a crafter,, thank you to the publisher for making a nook book verison , now i can carry this on the go.. cheers crocheters
Makes it easy to satisfy my creative side --make my own patterns and not just follow the leader.
So There is not mention of this on the book purchase page. I won't use B&N for anything in the future. I've had nothing but problems. At least I didn't have to fight for a refund.
