This book is the must have for all crocheters! If there is anything you need to know about anything that you may do in crochet then this book holds all the information for you. Everyone from beginners upwards are covered. It's one of those must go to books that you can pick up when you have any query. The instructions are clear and easy to understand. The diagrams backup the clear instructions so it makes everything easier to understand. Everything and I mean everything is explained! This book is here to help you make sure your projects turn out beautiful and the finishing looks good. I love the hints and tricks that Nancie gives you to help you on your way. Everything from written instructions to charts are explained... There isn't anything that hasn't been covered: zips, buttons, buttons holes, pockets, Tunisian crochet and much much more. I am astounded by the amount that is covered in this book! I can't take in all the fantastic tips that I want to use. I'm going to be going through this book quite a few times before I even start another project. I would give this book 5 out of 5.
