This concealed ring-bound book focuses on tapestry crochet but also offers several other types of projects, including granny squares and three-dimensional flowers. The look of tapestry crochet is very distinctive and is rarely represented in craft books published in the U.S. The instructional portion of this book outlines the eight types of stitches needed to complete the projects as well as tips for changing colors, finishing, turning chain, and reading charts and a section informing left-handed crafters how they can adapt the patterns to fit their needs. Most of the tapestry crochet patterns are for bags and accessories, and the more traditional crochet patterns are focused on granny squares and decorative items such as flowers and chains. An additional tips section at the end of the book offers help related to technical aspects, including weaving in ends, counting stitches, stringing beads, selecting yarn and other material, and more.--Anne Heidemann, Booklist This book blew me away. ...
