Children can quickly master basic crochet stitches with this cheery book that features simple language and clever animal cartoon characters. Excellent step-by-step instructions with photos take young beginners from crocheting chains to learning single and double crochet techniquesand then they are off to squares, circles, and half trebles. Projects along the way include a striped toy cat, a small stuffed bear, a cute bag, and a bunch of fabulous flowers. A section called When Things Go Wrong offers humorous advice about dropped stitches, sewing troubles, and other frustrations.
Softly hued, whimsical color illustrations are superimposed on sharp, vivid color photos in this eye-catching introduction. In step-by-step fashion, children will learn how (with adult guidance) to crochet a pen or pencil topper, cute critters, flowers, a bag, and more. Adorable mice guide children throughout with their "Pip Says" and "Peg Says" tips. Activities include stitching seams, following a pattern/chart, crocheting with stripes, decreasing/increasing, double crochet, crocheting in circles, and fixing mistakes. Each project includes a list of materials, a chart (which the book claims is the easiest type of crochet pattern), and a color photograph of the finished product. Back matter includes templates for cutting the felt pieces that some projects require and information on yarn and one supplier. A solid addition to craft collections.-Augusta R.

A WONDERFUL LEARNING TOOL -- IT WOULD BE GREAT IF "ADULT" CRAFT BOOKS WERE AS WELL WRITTEN AS THIS BOOK IS. I'M NOT A GRANNY BUT A GREAT AUNT WITH A DESIRE TO PASS ON MY KNOWLEDGE OF KNITTING AND CROCHETING TO ALL THE "LITTLE ONES" IN THE FAMILY WHO'VE EXPRSESED AN INTEREST IN LEARNING, AFTER SEEING ALL THE BEAUTIFUL ITEMS I'VE MADE AND, LUCKY ME, I HAVE ACCESS TO ONLINE PURCHASING WITH BARNES & NOBLE. THE ACCESSIBILITY, SERVICE, AND REMARKABLE EXPEDITIOUS DELIVERY IS GREAT! IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO HAVE ACCESS TO LOCAL STORES AS WELL. THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING A CURRENT WIDE SELECTION OF GREAT BOOKS AND MUSIC.
