Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Taylor (Knitting 200 Q&A) brings her knowledge of fiber craft to crochet, and the result is an FAQ book for crocheters from beginner to advanced. The topical organization of the book means that questions of all levels are jumbled together, but the index allows for easy access to the information needed. Not groundbreaking, this is best for those looking for a good general crochet guide update.
