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.
