I received a copy of Crochet 101 through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I can’t even tell you how many attempts I’ve made at trying to learn how to crochet. For some reason I just can’t pick it up the way I picked up knitting. Why am I lamenting my lack of crocheting skills? Mostly to help you realize how helpful Crochet 101 was for me. I tried following the instructions provided and I actually had some success! I’m by no means a master now, but I made so much more progress than I expected to. I think that I’ll have to go over the basics once again (or you know, a few dozen times) but then I’ll b able to move on to more complicated designs. Hopefully I’ll luck out and by the Deborah Burger will have published a few books of crochet patterns for me to follow.

I love how all the instructions were set out in a step by step manner. Not only did it make it easier to follow this way, but say you screwed up and had to go back a few steps…well it’d be easy to find the last time you did things correctly (I swear this didn’t happen to me).

Did I mention that there are online tutorials to help supplement the book? Words can’t even begin to describe how excited that made me. That’s a perfect touch, and will prove to be incredibly useful, both for the basics and the more complex steps.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
