That said, my biggest problem with this book, is I really feel the photographs don't do the patterns justice. They're all great pictures, but they all look like they should be side photos, and not a main picture. They don't usually show the whole work, and tend to be too close to the work to give you a full view of what it would look like finished. I saw a finished work from the book online in another crocheter's journal, and I said to myself that I didn't remember seeing that in the book at ALL. I looked back, and realized it was one of the close up pictured items. Not a good way to sell a book.
I didn't give it 5 stars because the instructions could've been a little better. First-timers may need some supplemental explanation from other sources.
this is such a great time to be a crocheter; there are many MANY wonderful books being published this year, and this ia worthwhile addition for a novice as well as someone more exeperienced.
Overall, I think this is a lovely book. However, Simple Crochet is just that: simple. It only shows a small handful how-to-do stitch sections, so if you are looking for something more comprehensive, choose another book.
It does have some very interesting projects, and provides some idea fodder that I certainly never imagined.
So, if you have some experience crocheting, or if you have a mentor who can help clarify instructions, this is a worthwhile addition to your craft library.
