I’ve been scouring the library & friends for all crochet books and this was one of the last ones I got hold of. It seems to have some of the best instructions that any of them have, it has good pictures which make sense (how many do you stare at when you start, going … duh … what .. how …) but the 1st projects are – whoah – seem v complicated to the beginner – I’ve just made a flower which you create a chain round the back of a round – that’s the 1st project?!
