I have been crocheting for 4 years now
and I can honestly say that I still have so much to learn!
It's what I love about crochet.
There is always something else you can learn.

I must admit there is two of the techniques
that I have learnt previously in this book.
So there are still eight other techniques to learn.

Yes that's right you get to learn 10 techniques in this one book;
Bruges Lace Crochet
Tunisian Crochet
Broomstick Lace Crochet
Symbol Crochet
Hairpin Lace Crochet
Irish Crochet
Filet Crochet
Polish Stars
Tapestry Crochet Mosaic Crochet

Each of the techniques have clear to understand instructions
and clear pictures to help you on your way. 
Then you also get at least two patterns to practice the techniques
you have learnt.

I must admit I love the patterns in this book!
They look amazing and it's brilliant you can
learn each of the techniques in one book
and make some beautiful projects to show them off.

I have already decided that I am going to spend a month on learning
all the techniques (fingers crossed)
and make some of the amazing projects in the book.


The brilliant thing is the projects will make brilliant gifts
for family and friends.
So whilst I am learning I am hoping to make some
of my Christmas gifts.

I think the only problem I will have is not keeping them for myself.


Most of the patterns are in written easy to read format.
You are also supplied with charts where required.

I can honestly say there isn't a pattern in the book
that I wouldn't want to make.
There is just so much packed into this book
it's fantastic value
& so much to learn!
