Library Journal Review

Varnam's (Cute Crocheted Animals) budget-priced, no-frills introduction to crochet walks beginners step-by-step through the basics, from the foundation chain through basic stitches. Each technique is illustrated with two-color line drawings showing both the hand position and the motion of the hook and the yarn as a reference. Each of the stitches and techniques features a small, practical project designed to reinforce the skills taught in that section. The overall approach is similar to the "Storey Basics" series title How To Crochet by Sara Delaney but with a greater emphasis on projects. VERDICT Beginners looking for an easy-to-follow overview of crochet basics coupled with a series of attractive and functional projects are the ideal audience for this guide. © Copyright 2017.
