100 Colorful Ripple Stitches to Crochet: 50 Original Stitches & 50 Fabulous Colorways for Blankets and Throws is a wonderful crochet pattern book. I'm a fan of the ripple stitch, I feel like it's an oldie but goody and very versatile. This book makes me want to immediately grab my hook and yarn and get to making a ripple ghan. There are some creative stitch patterns here as well as five full crochet projects; Retro Rose Afghan, Charleston Bag, Jitterbug Purse and San Francisco Pillows and Botticelli Scarf. The presentation is beautiful. The photos are vibrant and the instructions are clear. There's a stitch guide, a section about reading patterns properly and instructions on edging for reference. I whipped up a Jasmine star. Overall, I think this is a wonderful pattern book for crocheters to add to their collection! I can see myself referring to this pattern book time and again for project ideas. Thank you to St. Martin's Griffin for providing me with a review copy. disclaimer: This review is my honest opinion.

Such a wonderful book for a beginner like me, so awesome!!! Wonderful book of patterns so easy to follow. I love the beginners patterns and I am soooo a beginner but with this book I slightly moved up a notch, thank you very much. I needed to know the very basics and yep it was there, Materials and Notions and Crochet hooks (what size) that helped a lot and notice the photo of the types of hooks and if your work is too tight or too loose for me, duh check out the hooks:D What is so fascinating about this book the beautiful photos and easy to follow instructions, hey I did it, you can too. Thank you very much, again. I won this book on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz I highly recommend this book to whoever would love to learn how to crochet.
