    A sort of bible for crocheters and beginning crocheters, this book's patterns are beautiful and easy to follow. The book brings beginners into a better understanding of crocheting from beginning stitches to more complex ones, and shows how to build upon them. The charts are reader friendly. End patterns learned by connecting the more distinct small patterns into complex motifs are stunning. This book is a must have for crafter collections!

    Great book !!

    I had trouble learning to make granny squares. This book was great and I finally learned how to do them. There is such a variety, you should be able to find any kind you'd like to make.
