HASH(0xa590f450) out of 5 stars For the false beginner Aug. 14 2005
By AJM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought the crochet kit from this publisher because I had the knitting one, which is fantastic. I was a beginner knitter, and the kit really helped and supplied me with fun projects that I still refer to today. Now that I am a more experienced knitter, I thought I'd try my hand at crochet. Certain that I would find the same clear and helpful instructions in this kit, I purchased it without any hesitations.

I have to agree with the other reviewers: the projects are adorable, you get a decent number of different-sized crochet hooks, some yarn...but the the instructions are just terrible. The explanations are confusing and the illustrations are unclear. After struggling with a strand of knotted yarn that was going nowhere, I just picked up a trustier knitting and crochet resource: the Teach Yourself Visually Knitting and Crocheting book, published by Visual, which has very clear illustrations that demystify some of simpler aspects of crochet. I plan to use this kit in the future, as my skills improve, so beginners beware: you will not learn how to crochet with the instructions provided in this kit! Crocheting should be relaxing and satisfying, but you will feel nothing but frustration and annoyance from trying to learn from this kit. Either buy another guide to supplement or take a class before buying this (as mentioned, the projects really are worthwhile- this publication's only saving grace).

HASH(0xa590f4a4) out of 5 stars Disappointing..... not ideal for beginners. May 29 2005
By Cheryl Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I really wanted to love this kit, because I have the Stitch-it Kit and Cardmaking Kit from Chronicle Books. It's a great publishing concept.

The design is wonderful and most of the patterns are pretty great, but the instruction pamphlet (it's hardly a book!) is woefully inadequate for the beginner to crochet.

The packaging is so cute that this would be a good gift... but supplemented with a better, more detailed introduction to crochet. I'd still recommend it, just don't expect that it will be all you need to get crocheting!

HASH(0xa590f8dc) out of 5 stars Great photography and projects but not for beginners June 14 2005
By Song Yi Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
When I first opened the booklet (it's really not a book) I didn't know how to crochet at all. Having read the whole book, I still don't know how to crochet. There needs to be diagrams on the project cards. There's no way to learn from these project even though it says beginners can use this kit. The photography is lovely and the projects are cute but I'm going to have to learn ro crochet somewhere else and then revisit this kit.

HASH(0xa590fc9c) out of 5 stars excellent gift for someone who loves to crochet Aug. 23 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We got this as a "welcome home from camp" gift for my daughter. She LOVES it! She's only been crocheting for about a year, if that tells you the level of the book. It's not for someone who has only learned 2 stiches, but for someone who is ready to do a little more. It has EXCELLENT pictures and ideas. The plus is that it is very nicely packaged, which is why it is perfect for a gift.

HASH(0xa590fc48) out of 5 stars Excellent and fun resource for a crocheters bag.... Sept. 2 2005
By Taffyrn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although not for the advanced crocheter, this kit includes all the basics for someone to get started and to try some new projects. I have been crocheting for years, my grandmother taught me and I liked the ease of the cards and some cute new projects to just whip up for gifts or fun. I also bought a few of these for some friends I am teaching to crochet. This with the encyclopedia of crochet will get anyone started, even those that don't have help. I think for someone young, or even in their 20's or 30's they would enjoy making most of these projects for sure.... other ages would depend on a persons style or ability to modifiy patterns to their own tastes.

Overall a great little kit that comes with everything you need to teach a friend to crochet and to have for traveling.
