What an amazing book!
If you are a beginner crocheter or you want to expand
your skills then you'll find everything
you need to know in this book.

Sharon has taken an amazing amount of information
and put it together in a logical way to make
it easier for you to learn different crocheting techniques.

You are walked through everything with step-by-step instructions
with photos and illustrations.

Once you have learnt the basics Sharon takes you through
different techniques to expand your skills
and make some beautiful projects.

There are twenty projects within the book 
that uses they skills
you have learnt to practice and make beautiful things.
There is everything from shawls, bags, scarves,
 blankets, pillows and so much more.

You can learn everything from basic crocheting.
Learning each of the stitches from slip stitch to
front post double crochet.
Then you can learn tunisian crochet, motifs,
chevrons, openwork, fair isle, bobbles
and loads more.

The thing I find most useful about this book
is not only are the step-by-step instructions
when you are learning the stitches,
there is also clear instructions and pictures
to help you with the projects.

There is a good selection of projects
and they would all really make fantastic gifts.
I have already started making some for 
Christmas presents.

The projects take the basic skills and uses
them to make classic designs that
look like they've been made by an expert.

This book is ideal for any new crocheter
or for anyone who wants to expand their skills.
It can give you the confidence to make
beautiful projects.
