June Gilbank has created a wonderful resource for both novice and experienced crocheters. The book begins by discussing yarn, tools, and other basics, and then progresses through to basic stitches and projects, colourwork, and fancy stitches.

The pictures and instructions are clear and very easy to follow. June has a knack for explaining crochet in very easy to understand terms. She has also produced very cute patterns that will help you learn new techniques while creating things that are actually useful and pretty.

As I was growing up, I observed my grand-mother knitting and crocheting various things. Part of me wish that I would be gifted like her but I never really took the time to ask her to show me how to do it. Today, I am blessed to have mittens and socks knitted by her hands as well as quilts and crochet items.

On of the few things I have from her that she crocheted for me was the red dress that even my own daughter has worn when she was a baby. She even had made a similar one for my mom.

Nevertheless, since I became a mother, I wish I would be able to crochet like she did so I can do things for my daughter and her doll. So when I was offered to review one of the Idiot’s Guides from DK Canada, I immediately selected the crochet one. I have seen marvellous crochet items on pinterest and dream of making some of my own. So now I do not have any excuses with this book in hand apart for time to learn.

This book is packed with hundreds of inspirational color photos and easy-to-follow instructions. you will get advices on choosing your hook, yarn and other helpful tools, you will follow lessons in learning how to make pretty and practical stitches, you will learn to increase and decrease, you will have at the tip of your finger to guidance necessary to read crochet patterns and decoding crochet charts as well as you will have fifteen projects and patterns to build.

Nevertheless, since I became a mother, I wish I would be able to crochet like she did so I can do things for my daughter and her doll. So when I was offered to review one of the Idiot’s Guides from DK Canada, I immediately selected the crochet one. I have seen marvellous crochet items on pinterest and dream of making some of my own.

This book is amazing! I am not a new crocheter, but I wish this book had been around when I was learning. It has everything I could ever want in a learn to crochet book. June explains everything, even things you didn't know to ask! I have never seen another book explain how to frog (rip out) your work.

It has easy to follow instructions with clear pictures. And the patterns are great too! They are set out to build up your skills as you progress. I admit, I didn't really need the tutorials, but they would be invaluable for a new crocheter. The stitch library is also very useful. I've already made the basket from the book and modified it with a separate edging (also from the book). So easy!

I would highly recommend this book to anyone starting to learn crochet. It just might be the only book you need.
And a seasoned crocheter would benefit from the refreshers, stitch library and beautiful patterns as well.
