The previous reviewers are correct that this book has a little bit of everything (including broomstick crochet) but the organization is ackward and the instructions very generalized. they tend to gloss over details and say things like continue. Not repeat row 4 or anything so specific but continue...continue rows 1-4 or just the last row? your guess is as good as mine. Also within one pattern they show many variations (good idea - bad execution) but very simple and general directions. I expected more and found the instructions too frustrating to keep the book. The pictures are great and the number of different types of crochet is good.

The best explanations I have found so far on how to do button holes, button covers, etc. It also has a great many new stitches I didn't know - and the directions are very easy to follow. I use this book as reference when I get stuck on a pattern. This book is definitely the best 'how to' book I have. It goes way beyond beginning stitches and into more advanced techniques, but in a way a beginner can follow. Very, very helpful. The illustrations are really great too.

I found this book to be very helpful in learning to crochet. It's easy to understand and will eventually work me up to crocheting more difficult pieces.

I just purchased this used and it was well worth the used price. Great detailed photos and examples of squares, edging and how to do Brugge Lace.

An okay book for the beginner. About 1/3 of the stitches shown are not commonly used (and are out of fashion). I like that the instructions tell you how many multiples you need in your foundation row (for example: "make a foundation chain with a number of chains that is a multiple of 4, plus 2"). That way you can make any size piece you want.
