I purchased this book looking for help with a crochet technique. Not only did I NOT find what I was looking for, I quickly realized this book was written by people who are MUCH more into knitting than crochet. I do both, so there is no issue for me in terms of the chip on the shoulder some crocheters have with knitters. However, if I did not knit and crochet, I might have been more than a little annoyed with this book. Phew! Talk about knitting snobs!!! They give the entire history of knitting, but not a word about the history of crochet. And, that's just one tiny example of what is missing in this book with regards to crocheting. Thank goodness I have a local knitting store that has fabulous instructors and they helped me with my sought-after technique information.
Its a GREAT book if you're a beginning knitter! So for that, its a good purchase.
