Great guide to crochet, clear instructions, plain English and easy to inderstand. The pictures are bright, colourful and a great learning aid to the instructions.

As an experience crocheter I was absolutely thrilled with this book. The stitches are suitable for beginners right through to the more experienced. Each stitch is clearly described and the instructions are easy to follow. The picture are brilliantly clear too 200:stitches which would be suitable for blankets right through to a delicate shawl .....the patterns are only for the stitches but they are so clear it’s easy to see how they could be used. I will definitely be referring to this often

I am not an expert crocheter by any means however I am also not a beginner. I have mastered the basic stitches but have always had difficulty learning the more intricate stitches mainly due to the lack of visuals and my poor attempts at trying to understand the meanings of symbols. So I essentially would give up, with the hopes one day someone would show me. This book is simple in its idea but opened a whole new world of crochet stitches to me, and enlightened me to the meanings of those pesky symbols. Each stitch is plainly explained with a picture, or many for some of the truly intricate ones. So easy to follow, as soon as I mastered one I wanted to move onto the next without pause. I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy, and will definitely be buying a copy for myself. Wonderful!

As a beginner crocheter, I am always on the look out for crochet books to help me develop my stitches repertorie and skill., though I must confess to mostly watching you tube tutorials as they tend to be the best at explaining stitches and directing you clearly. However, my opinion has changed after reading this book! This book is superb and a total must for any crocheter ( Beginner/advanced), it has clear photographs and instructions on how to create some fantastic stitches. It is easy to read, clear and concise, and I have picked up some great new stitch techniques and tips which are invaluable to me. I admit I have read a obscene amount of crochet books previously to try to learn crochet and have discarded all of them as they are too difficult to follow and understand, but I can honestly say that this book is not like that. Should you need a crochet book to learn or even to refresh your stitch arsenal, then this is the ONLY book you need! Believe me YOU NEED TO BUY THIS BOOK!!!! A huge thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to review this book in return for a honest review
