Hey gang! I’ve got a cool book review to share with you today :) It’s the first book from my friend Ali Campbell: Crochet for Beginners who want to Improve: Continue to Learn to Crochet.
Here’s the official description of the book:
Using a Traffic Light Crochet Teaching System, Ali will take Crochet Beginners through a series of projects that are written in easy to understand patterns, which will help to build confidence in pattern reading & Crochet techniques. Beginners are often left to fend for themselves when it comes to pattern reading, once they’ve learnt a few basic stitches & this could break a newly self taught or newly taught crocheters confidence. By purchasing this book, you will not only learn to read patterns more confidently, but you’ll learn lots of simple tips & tricks along the way, which you will take with you and your crochet forever & hopefully pass your newly learnt knowledge on to others too! You will also learn to Crochet confidently in Rows & Rounds, Crochet socks, Hats, Granny Squares & lots more, including colour changes, joining methods & finishing touches. There are 10 easy to follow pattern projects incorporating her Crochet Traffic Light system, that have all been designed by Ali, who has successfully taught these patterns to many pupils in the last few years with GREAT results. You will need to know the basic stitches – Double Crochet & Treble Crochet and have a chunky weight wool /yarn & a 6mm or 6.5mm hook to get started in your next crochet journey – from Beginner to Improver!
The book is full of fun projects to make, like a beanie, a headband, and socks, and it also features some more traditional patterns like granny squares, joining methods, and colour changes.
This book is really great and is filled to the brim with tips for crocheters of any level, from beginners to advanced crocheters. I was pleasantly surprised with the projects in this book; there’s something new to learn here for everyone! That makes this book a definite must-have on my list.
And the good news is: I get to give away a copy to one lucky reader! :) For your chance to win, leave a comment below saying what crochet technique you’d like to truly master, like joining motifs, perfect colour changes in the middle of your work or even turning your work. The winner gets to chose between the US or UK version of the book.
I’ll pick a winner next week. Good luck! :)
