Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Guides And Tutorial One of my favorite crafts is crochet. It is easy to carry along with you in many cases and while it can be quick to learn there’s always a new stitch around the corner to master. With Crochet 101 you will be able to learn all of the basic stitches and build upon them. After a brief introduction and a quick description of the lessons to follow, the book then begins with Crochet Basics. This section gives you an introduction to crochet tools like hooks, yarns, and threads, a yarn vocabulary list, and notions. Start To Stitch offers various suggestions on holding your crochet hook, holding the yard, and the slip knot. A brief list of various crochet language terms is also included. The Chain Stitch is the first instruction with several step-by-step photographs to help you along the way. The instructions also include a quick reference, tip, and more crochet language terms. At the end of the lesson is a troubleshooting guide with ideas on how to fix various problems you might come across. The Crochet Basics section continues along with several projects to build your technique. You will be working single crochet, double crochet and even double crochet motifs. The next section, Putting It All Together, builds on your basic skills. International stitch symbols are introduced with the information on how to use them, and more basic stitches are added. I liked how the various instructions and patterns had both the standard pattern and the chart pattern included. More and more patterns are being created with the chart which I find is much easier to read and visualize. Learning how to read these charts will become a valuable skill. But of course, anyone wanting to work on an older pattern will need to read the standard, harder to decipher, written instructions. Learning that skill will be invaluable as well. Useful Guides And Tutorial It was also very useful to have troubleshooting guides included at the end of each tutorial so you can easily learn how to fix errors or imperfections. The "What You’ll Learn" and "What You’ll Need" are also very helpful in giving an overview of what to expect from the lesson. At the end of the book is a list of Abbreviations And Symbols and term conversions from US to UK. A Stitch Key provides a legend for the crochet pattern charts and is followed by a Glossary of Terms and the Index. This is undoubtedly an excellent resource for anyone learning crochet. For anybody who is familiar with crochet but not yet adept, it will be an excellent go-to guide for reference. There are several fun projects included, most should stand the test of time and be usable many years from now. Reviewed for LnkToMi iRead in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
