(3 Votes)


Tackling a new skill doesn't have to be a stressful task you undertake on your own.  How to Crochet: The Ultimate Beginner's Guide of Tutorials and Patterns wants to make sure you have every possible resource at your disposal: videos for visual learners, step-by-step crochet instructions with photos, and a variety of techniques for learning the crochet basics. The most exciting feature of this collection, though, is that it doesn't just show you the beginning of a design and then leave you stranded; it matches each of these tutorials with the best crochet patterns for beginners so that you can learn, practice, and enjoy your work. It features some of the most popular easy crochet patterns that newcomers want to learn, like scarves and granny squares, plus different crochet stitches that will enhance any pattern once you get started.

Crochet Magic Circle

The crochet magic circle is the foundation for some of the greatest crochet patterns: granny squares, coasters, rugs, and more. If you continue to learn to crochet, you will undoubtedly come across a pattern requiring this technique. This collection features a video, step by step crochet instructions, and 13 gorgeous patterns to try out.

Crochet Granny Squares

Granny squares are another crochet building block, especially for easy crochet blankets. The ins-and-outs might seem tricky, but with this selection, you can learn how to crochet a granny square right or left handed, how to join crochet squares together, and then how to use these new skills on 16 granny square patterns ranging from pillows to ponchos.

Crochet Bobble Stitch

The crochet bobble stitch is often a crocheter's go-to for adding exciting texture to a pattern. It combines double or half double crochet stitches to create a raised, circular design. Here, you will find a video tutorial plus two easy crochet patterns and one advanced crochet bag pattern (you will be ready for it in no time!).

Crochet Crocodile Stitch

If you've seen a crochet pattern and noticed how similar the crochet stitches look to a scale or a petal, then you are probably admiring the crochet crocodile stitch. This stitch adds great drama to a pattern, so be sure to check out the crochet tutorials—video and written—before diving in to the 18 crocodile stitch patterns.

Crochet Scarf Patterns

One of the first designs most beginners test out is a crochet scarf pattern because it's something to learn from and use as part of your wardrobe. This collection features seven videos that will walk you through the crochet instructions for seven different scarves, so you grab your hooks and get ready to crochet with a pro!

Beads and Buttons

I'm so glad I found this! I'm a fairly experienced crocheter, but for some reason I've always had trouble getting the hang of the crocodile stitch. Having a visual learning guide plus the perfect project to test my new skills on is exciting - I'm going to conquer this stitch!!

There is such a wealth of information contained in this book and It is sure to be a valuable resource for everyone who loves to crochet. I've often collected tutorials on various stitches but without any clear idea of how to use them. This book, as the author states, actually provides patterns to practice those new stitches. A great learning tool for those new to crochet with all of your reference materials in one volume.

I teach people how to crochet. It's not always easy. Sometimes they don't understand what I am trying to say and sometimes I don't know exactly what they are doing wrong. This book has come in so handy. Pictures truly are worth a thousand words. And not only does it help them, I have finally conquered the magic circle thanks to this book. Thank you so much for offering it.
