I love to crochet. In fact, it's a past-time that I just can't get enough of. I've made, thus far, one blanket (my first attempt, it's very lopsided but extremely warm) and many scarves. Now I'm moving on to more fancier things and I'm going to begin selling my work on my etsy shoppe. But here is the problem with me: I learned how to make the most simplest of crochet stitches when I was 20 in my dorms common room with a friend showing me.
I have a photographic memory and I always have. If I see it, I remember it. Reading directions about how to make a crochet stitch? I can't do it. I falter and the resulting product looks like a knot. I'm the same way with knitting (which I am in no way as decent at as I am with crocheting).
That's why I fell in love with this book. It's an instructional manual with so many different stitches that will leave crocheting an easy thing to do. With brightly colored photos showing each step and clearly printed instructions to boot this book is perfect for people like me- who need the pictures- and those who can read instructions and happily follow.
If you're interested in picking up crocheting (there is nothing better then a homemade blanket!) then I would suggest to you to pick this book up as well. After looking through crochet book after crochet book this one really did work for me and I stand by it and would suggest it to anyone.
