I can't believe I'm crocheting
The book was very good at explaining all the stitches, how to do them and the different type of yarns to use.
I do beginning crocheting and the book helped me to go to the next level.
I would recommend it to beginner crocheters.
I Can't Believe I'm Crocheting.
I've been crocheting for years and downloaded this just for the patterns. I think this book is great for anyone that wants to learn to crochet on their own. The instructions are very clear and well illustrated. I have some people at work that have asked me to teach them to crochet and this will be a good guide.
Photos too small
Instructions are easy to follow but the illustrations are too small to see the stitches and hook placements. I was able to increase the size of the print but the photos do not enlarge enough to clearly see the examples.
