This updated edition of crocheter Brown's beginner-friendly guide takes a basics-and-beyond approach, starting with the bare essentials (choice of hook and yarn, how to determine gauge, and how to read instructions), followed by a step-by-step guide to crochet stitches and techniques. The presentation is straightforward, with illustrated directions and an uncluttered layout. Like others in this popular series, this title serves as a quick reference, featuring basic information about supplies, stitches, and techniques. Its portable size makes it handy for travel, and the lay-flat spiral binding allows crocheters to keep the book open easily while following directions. VERDICT This excellent reference to crochet technique contains enough material to satisfy crocheters who need a quick overview of a specific topic.
