Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Leinhauser and Weiss, both crochet experts, assembled years of wisdom into this short guide, which focuses on the basics of crochet, clearly presented for beginners. While most crochet guides focus on stitches, this one instead emphasizes supplies, tools, and pattern reading, with the stitches relegated to a brief "refresher course" section. Three very simple projects—a face cloth, a dishcloth, and a scarf—are included. In addition to this book, the authors have also published a companion guide focusing on knitting basics. VERDICT This pocket-size book covers the essentials and is suitable for novices who know how to crochet but lack more detailed knowledge of tools and techniques.
