After downloading many, many books on crocheting, I finally, what my Father would say, hit pay dirt! This book has what about 95% of the other books don't have--photos! (I don't know, does it cost extra to insert photos in a book that is published on ?)Ms. Brown has included enough of each element of crochet needed to make this book of value to everyone who is just above beginner to experienced crochet. And of course, there are the pictures!She has included a section at the beginning of the book for reviewing the basics of crocheting which is a nice reference for those who have been crocheting any length of time. Ah, pictures!Emma has included a very nice selection of patterns from baby to king size to holiday-themed afghans. These patterns include an assortment is stitches, including Tunesian and Broomstick. There is really something for everyone in this book. And there are pictures! Oh, my!!You can feel confident in getting this book. I really don't think you'll be disappointed!Oh, did I tell you about the pictures!?!Have fun with this book--I did!Monica Brown
I ordered the book because while I've crocheted simple things like pot holders before, I've never made anything like an afghan. The crochet patterns are easy to follow, and the glossary of terms in the back is really helpful. I've always been intimidated by the language they use, but this book does an excellent job of explaining the stitches and terms used. There are also a ton of YouTube videos embedded in it, which was nice. If you're new to crocheting afghans or crocheting in general, it has a really thorough overview of yarns and hook types at the beginning. I started working on a granny stitch afghan this morning and it's coming together really well. One or two pictures in the beginning where it teaches you how to start a chain were out of order, but it was easy enough to figure out with the video and written instructions.
I have never thought crochet afghans could be so easy. The projects are very artistic and the instructions on doing them are easy to follow thanks to the many illustrations that the book provides. Such a great work for newbies like me and it is worth your time.
This is a wonderful book for those wanting to crochet afghans but don't know where to begin. It shows in detail all the stitches needed to get started and has plenty of wonderful images throughout. Many crochet stitches often used in afghans are given step by step. They include the ripple stitch, shell stitch and more. The book is well written, is broken down into chapters and it has a working table of contents. I've been crocheting for years and even I was able to learn a new stitch I'd never understood before. Recommended
This is good crochet guide especially if you've never tried to make an afghan before. I like the clear instructions and the guides that show you every stop. The projects are on trend and cute for having around the house. I finished my first blanket using this book and it wasn't as complex as I heard crocheting can be. Everything I did turned out like the picture which is always a relief. I shared this book with my daughter who is picking the crochet skill up from it and she's 12.
Look forward to completing some of these many patterns.Great instructional book. I will highly treasure this gem.Easy-to-use with lots of tutorial pictures.
Great book for slow or average beginners and also for more advanced crocheting. This book is worth your time and to brush up on if you haven't crocheted for a time.
I am 100% a beginner. Like, I barely know how to use the needles. However, the pictures in this book were great and made it feel like I could jump in and make a blanket! I haven't actually tried yet (time), but I already feel like I am one step closer to croceting. Before it was really intimidating, but this book has helped break it down into baby steps I look forward to taking.
