I ve had the knitting version for years even though I ve not caught the knitting bug but hadn t read the crochet one Picked it up through Kindle Unlimited and zoomed through it Really enjoyed the historical information That was my favorite part I can t see myself making anything from the patterns included but still enjoyed the book. Good started book Breaks things down really well This is an excellent example of what a craft book in general should be it s clearly written and easy to understand without being patronizing, while still retaining a sense of humor to keep it from degenerating into a droning, textbookish monologue.The illustrations are an added perk, and make it easier to understand just what the author is trying to say, which is a must when you re trying to figure out that tricky V stitch, but they don t clutter the page too much.The patterns are widely varied This is an excellent example of what a craft book in general should be it s clearly written and easy to understand without being patronizing, while still retaining a sense of humor to keep it from degenerating into a droning, textbookish monologue.The illustrations are an added perk, and make it easier to understand just what the author is trying to say, which is a must when you re trying to figure out that tricky V stitch, but they don t clutter the page too much.The patterns are widely varied and aesthetically pleasing, although there could be less garments andnon wearables, such as household items and accessories, but most people want to start off with a hat and scarf rather than a dishtowel and coaster, I guess.Overall, if I were going to recommend a book for beginning, or even veteran crocheters, this one would probably be the first on my list
