I bought this book to make crocheted outfits for my granddaughter's American Girl dolls. None of them fit; in all of them I've had to make significant adjustments in hook sizes, and row & pattern reps. Not a keeper for my crochet library,
Would have liked more information regarding the types of yarn, to use. I found it difficult to locate the type used in this book. Frustrating knowing what to substitute for yarn wt. texture. I made one item, and it did not look like the one in the book, because of the choice of yarn I had to use.
