This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn to crochet. It draws on the experience of the designers at The Crochet Project who, between them, have taught hundreds of people to crochet in classes up and down the UK. It contains clear instructions and information is imparted in a friendly way. It is spiral bound so it lays nice and flat while you work and makes it easy to flip back and forth between the various bits of information you might need. It’s a great book with which to start your Crochet journey!
The book has been written as though it is a course so it is best to start at the beginning and work your way through the text and the projects in order. It contains 4 projects over 80 pages:
The Burwell Cowl is the first project in the book and is designed to help you practice your basic stitches.
The Wicken Mitts are an introduction to working into row ends, following a pattern and making something to fit.
The Bottisham Hat introduces you to working in the round, making a traditional motif, working seamlessly and decreasing.
The Quy Shawl introduces you to reading charts, working lace patterns, picots, understanding special stitches, increasing in pattern.
The book is written in UK standard crochet terminology and has a full discussion of the differences between the UK and US standards and makes references to the US terms throughout.
