Well-known crochet designer Ohrenstein (The New Tunisian Crochet) takes a basics-and-beyond approach to crochet in this workshop-style overview of crochet techniques. Ohrenstein starts with project planning, including choice of yarn and hook, tension, and gauge, followed by crochet basics, including common stitches and starting and turning chains. Several chapters on intermediate techniques, including working in the round, shaping, textured stitches, and colorwork, are also featured. Full-color photographs appear throughout, and many of the illustrations consist of close-ups of the stitches being formed, making it easy to understand the written directions. A small selection of projects reinforces the concepts in the book. VERDICT Ohrenstein's latest is both a course-in-a-book and a useful reference to crochet techniques.

This is a great little book for anyone out there who wants to learn more about crochet or to improve upon their crochet skills, from beginners to oldies like me :). The book has the absolute basics, but also discusses things like yarn choice and various crochet stitches. Each lesson builds upon the previous ones, but you can certainly skip around if there is a particular topic that catches your eye. It's definitely a must have for anyone interested in developing their crochet skills, but is definitely more geared towards beginners or those who haven't crocheted in a long time. -- I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and was not paid for my review.

I purchased the ebook version and it doesn't go past page 10. You're paying to read the contents and the introduction only so save your money! I am going to buy the paper version of this book though as the contents look great and I like techniques book.
