Everything and I mean everything is explained!
This book is here to help you make sure your projects
turn out beautiful and the finishing looks good.
I love the hints and tricks that Nancie gives you to help
you on your way.
Everything from written instructions to charts are explained.
You will be amazed at the amount of different seems
that Nancie has explained to make your life easier.
Her use of different coloured yarns to show you how,
where and when you do different stitches, really makes
things a lot easier.
Her explanations for bands puts my previous attempts
to shame!
I will be practicing her different ideas and techniques
on a regular basis.
I am also in aw of her button holes. I've previously stayed
away from button holes but Nancie's techniques mean I want
to try them now and hopefully get them looking as beautiful as hers.
I'll also hopefully be placing them in the right places as well.
Nancie has a fantastic form to calculate the placement of your
button holes.
A simple but fantastic idea to make you projects pop.
There isn't anything that hasn't been covered:
zips, buttons, buttons holes, pockets, Tunisian crochet
and much much more.
I am astounded by the amount that is covered in this book!
I can't take in all the fantastic tips that I want to use.
I'm going to be going through this book
quite a few times before I even start another project.
I would give this book 5 out of 5

  1. Very nice! There are so many of those on the market. End of march I will have my OWN crochet book of techniques and stitches finished. Mine is an e- book, which will have the same information, but it will refer to Utube channels for tutorials and on line charts. i have found young people rather google their information, than read a book. My book will be a great timesaver, because it is a reference book : find what you are looking for and get back to your project, instead of looking on the internet, get sidetracked and spend all the time on the internet , rather than crocheting. I am finished organizing and have written most all of it. It will be also expandable, since it is not written on paper. We will see how it goes.Thank you Sue . Your book reviews are awesome.
