The 4 and 5 star reviews have to be written by friends or relatives of the author to artificially raise the rating of this useless book. With that said, this book (if you can call it that) does not even give any patterns, just things that anyone who crochets would realize. If you don't know how to crochet, this book will not show you how. One example: "A bigger hook means a bigger stitch". No...way....! Other "hints" like "keep an even tension" and "one of the most used hooks is a size S" are not helpful either. A size S hook is so seldom used that I'm the only person I know who actually has this size hook. There are no actual stitch patterns either, just vague statements about granny squares and ripple patterns. Pictures are few and far between also...such as a generic picture of a bowl with a few yarn balls in it.I'm glad this was free today because if I had actually paid for it, I would've asked for my 99 cents back. It's barely even worth a nickle...This product was a personal purchase for myself at the normal retail price. I am reviewing it solely because I want to share my experience with other potential customers. I have received no compensation for my review nor do I have any relationship with the seller or manufacturer of this product.
This book is a rip-off. One would think this book would teach you . with patterns for one day afghans...... You would be wrong The title of this book is very misleading. I couldn't believe I had finished the book without having learned how to crochet an afghan in one day. Like maybe a few patterns would help. I'm very unhappy.
I'm sorry, this book will not help you learn to crochet an afghan. I don't mean to be rude but there is really very little instructional value. I have been crocheting for a few years and I have checked out more than a few books trying to learn more. I believe this was the least helpful book that I've come across. There are pictures completely unrelated to the text. Where pictures would be welcome, there aren't any to be seen. There isn't any instruction on how to read a pattern or what stitch codes are. When granny stitch and zigzag are mentioned it says only that skill is needed.
What kind of "book" is this? This is more like the sample. Did I get the wrong download? I would hope there is more to it than these few pages.
This may or may not help an absolute beginner. It doesn't show you a thing. It's okay if your good at figuring things out for yourself. It was a disappointment to me. I expected at least one pattern. Waist of money and time.
This is such a fun book! And will get you moving into making blankets and quilts! Easy to read patterns, I've already started a granny square scrap quilt because I looked through this book! A good gift for the slightly beyond beginner crocheter... and definitely a way to expand into being able to read patterns a little more proficiently if not familiar with following a pattern! Get it and start a new project!
Don't be fooled by the pretty picture. I should have read the reviews. Returned for a refund.
This guide (read:not book) is just a few pages of things like hold your hook this way or make sure you have even tension. While all great advice, it is extremely rudimentary and all better explained via YouTube.
