Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Learn to crochet from a book? Yes, if it happens to be this one, written by a woman who learned the craft as a child and has since taught numerous beginners and enthusiasts alike. Like other books in the Look, Learn and Create series, which runs the gamut from origami to quilting, this one begins with basics. Burger then follows with instructions for 16 projects, each one designed to expand on a previously taught skill or to demonstrate a new one. From a very simple scarf, created by knotting together separate rows of chain stitch worked in different colors, to an intricately patterned cowl, to a pair of custom-fitted slippers, the book thoroughly prepares readers to pursue the craft. Full-color, close-up photos accompany step-by-step instructions, and text boxes heading each project allow crocheters to gather necessary materials beforehand and preview the skills they will learn by following the directions. The covered spiral binding may need reinforcement, but it's a bonus for crocheters, whose hands are already thoroughly occupied. Suggest Seamless Crochet, by Kristin Omdahl, and Custom Crocheted Sweaters, by Dora Ohrenstein, to those ready for more challenges."
