I Can't Believe I'm Crocheting (Leisure Arts #4061): Updated Edition Reviews
I really needed this book after a twenty-year hiatus from crocheting and knitting. At the age of 88, I committed myself to supplying the delightful new patterns for preemies. Maybe with the addition of new stiches in patterns, I overestimated my ability to fullfil the needs of the economically-depived for a little beauty. It has become an ugly world out there!, but I can try. to add a little cheer.
I bought this book after getting frustrated trying to learn how to crochet from the black and white drawings found in other crochet books/pamphlets. I found the instructions and photos extremely easy to follow, and also liked that the book has supplementary information on hook sizes, yarn types, decreasing and increasing stitches, and felting crocheted items. The book does seem to be geared towards younger (teens and early 20's) people, but I didn't find that it detracted from the book. As far as patterns go, I thought they were just OK - nothing special, although there is a pattern for a round felted bag that I thought would be really cute to make for my daughter. Overall, I was very pleased with the book, and feel that it is worth buying just for the crochet instructions alone. I also highly recommend the Leisure Arts I Can't Believe I'm Crocheting DVD.
Great beginner's book or for brushing up on forgotten skills.
This is the easiest book to use when learning to crochet. I still use mine as a reference book and have bought it for gifts to give those I teach how to crochet.
I have looked at this booklet for a while, but I fought ordering it since it looks like something a teen would buy. I am so glad I committed to it. The pictures are in here clearly show which direction your yarn needs to be held and how it should look after you make a stitch. I have been crocheting incorrectly for years now. I'm 50 and I taught myself how to crochet when I was 10...incorrectly I might add. Now I know how to do it correctly and I have finished several projects. Buy this booklet for anyone that wants to learn to crochet.
Good book for beginners such as myself. Good way to learn about the stitches, and to refresh my memory about the ones that I have already learned.
Very informative book. This book plus a local class allowed me to learn knitting. Enjoyable, relaxing hobby.
I've reviewed tons of how to crochet books. This is the one that I've selected for my beginner classes. The book includes step-by-step instructions, with plenty of photos, for both right and left handed crocheters. Along with all the basic stitches, it has lots of useful information of yarn weights, hook sizes, getting gauge, and tips. There are plenty of colorful projects to work on as you improve your skills.
