I brought this book as i was learning to crochet. It has great written and pictured instructions. It has a huge variety of stitches and shows you how to create different patterns with a combination of stitches. I especially like the squares section as i find this an easy way to practice and get quick results. This book will always be handy to look things up and its a good size for your handbag.
