If you don't know how to crochet or you know someone who wants to learn
then this is a brilliant book.


The book takes you through easy to follow steps to help you to learn
how to crochet.


Emma is a mobile consultant for Rowan Yarns
and uses he vast knowledge to create
an amazing book that not only teaches you to crochet
she has also designed simplistic designs that are perfect for the modern lifestyle.


The projects are designed to show off the skills you are learning
and give you the "wow" factor for what you can make.


Everything you need to know about is in the book. 
You start of learning about the basic equipment 
that you will need.
The brilliant thing about crochet is you don't need much to get you started.
You are then taken through a short description of understanding yarn.
Once you've read the section of things you need to know, abbreviations etc
it's then time to start your crocheting journey.


Everything you need to know to crochet is taken
in easy to understand steps.
Each step includes a clear photo to help you along your way.
You will learn how to create a slip knot, crocheting a foundation chain
and then it's onto the exciting part of learning the stitches.
Not only do you learn the basic stitches you also learn how to join
in a new colour, increasing, decreasing stitches,
how to join two pieces together, working in the round.


You may think that this is a huge amount to learn in one
book but you are taken through a journey and you'll be shocked
how quickly you will pick up each lesson and complete it.


Once you have learnt all the stitches etc. you then get the fun
part of making projects to practice everything you have learnt.


The patterns are in written format in US terms but UK terms
are also included so which ever terms you are learning
you will be able to understand the patterns easily.


I love the projects as family and friends won't realise that
you have made them being a beginner.
The projects are stylish and easy to produce but with a big impact.


If you know someone who wants to learn to crochet
then this would be a brilliant gift for them.
Why not buy the book with a hook and the yarn for one of the projects.
Crochet is a beautiful craft and is one that is easily picked up.

  


I know I'll be making some of the projects from the book.
They really are beautiful and practical.
