Overview

Crochet history dates back as early as the 1500s with origins from the Mediterranean places. It’s an established craft so that even though there have been many innovations, most techniques and patterns are derived from the vintage works. In fact, most antique patterns can be given a modern look and are still as practicable for today’s use.

Crocheting is intricate handiwork. It’s one of the few art forms left that you can do at your own leisurely pace. One writer has even called it the perfect accompaniment to daydreaming.

It requires slow and gentle strokes to do crocheting so you can never hurry to finish a project. Many enthusiasts say that if you’re stressed about something while you’re crocheting, that stress will show in your work.

With all the different selection of hooks, yarns, stitches and techniques to become familiar with, it is easy for any beginner to get overwhelmed and discouraged. But any craft form requires some amount of know-how and skill, and so any beginner must possess the enthusiasm, patience and dedication to learn and master all the crocheting techniques.

This book will take most of the guesswork out of starting crocheting. The beginner will get to learn the following:

• Introduction to crochet supplies
• Yarn recommendations for beginners
• Easy to follow instructions and illustrations for the basic techniques
• Simple vintage patterns that you can make easily
• Resources aplenty

If you’re really into crochet and want to be successful with your projects, don’t be discouraged by your first attempts. The more you work on your mistakes, the better your skills will be. Crocheting is like tennis: the more you hit the ball “over” the court, the better your shots will be. So start learning the basic techniques and then practice, practice and practice until you can hook, loop and shape with ease and make exquisitely lovely crochet projects impeccably!

This is the same book as "Easy Crochet" by clara something, only it is better formatted and the links are broke. Same info in 70 LESS pages...only 31 in this version. Don't be fooled like me. I bought both "books" because they were cheap. I know authors have ghost writers. But to ghost write your own book? That gives self-publishers a bad name

I'm suspicious of any book about crocheting that features knitting needles in the cover photo. One would hope the author would know the difference between the two skills and make sure the photo would support that knowledge. If she doesn't know that much about crocheting, I can't feel confident she knows anything about the art form she is claiming to inform readers about.

This book isn't actually instructional, or funny; but it tries to be both. Overall a light-hearted, wordy, almost informative read. To be fair the author does talk a lot; sometimes adding some history, equipment needs, and basic patterns.
