Reviews - What do customers think about The Crocheter's Companion (The Companion series)?

Nice Reference  Aug 8, 2008
I have The Knitter's Companion and refer to it often. While this book is good I do not think it will become a frequently used reference book. It will be on my book shelf but not in my crochet bag.
a review of Amazon's 'search inside' feature.  Jul 31, 2007
What's the point of having a 'search inside' feature when you can't see anything but the index and title pages? This book may have some terrific projects in it, but you'd never know it from attempting to 'browse' the pages online. It's a constant problem - one which makes me nostalgic for bookstores, where one can examine a book before making a purchase.
Nice reference  Jul 11, 2007
Small and easy to use. Have all the basic and most of the advanced techniques and much more (finishing, decorative, motifs, afghan/Tunisian, Irish, filet, hints etc). The only disadvantage is that the illustrations are drawn and in black and white; I believe colorful photos would be much easier to understand at least for advanced and decorative techniques, and also for motifs. Other than that the book is a good reference and because of the size you can carry it anywhere.
I wouldn't suggest this book for learning crochet but it's a useful tool for beginner as a reference for stitches and troubleshooting.
clear patterns, well explained  Oct 10, 2005
good companion. like the clear graphics and explanations to do things the right way when you are a begginer. do not like the fold page of the book, but just a minor thing.
I like this little book.....  Jan 17, 2005
Although this jam-packed little volume is small enough to slip in your knitting/crochet basket, it holds enough information to rival larger books. Practical tools and suggestions fill the book as well as illustrations that are easy to understand (for me and I've been crocheting a long time). In case you forget the difference between the double crochet and the half-double crochet, the book includes example of those and other basic stitches as well as more ornate procedures such as making a popcorn stitch. One set of pages covers making Granny squares including `Granny square triangles' and other forms of the popular pattern. The book is printed in black and white and may not appeal to those who are color dependent. The pages are heavy with clear plastic surfaces which makes them easy to clean and long wearing, but hard to flip through if you are looking for something specific. I find THE CROCHETER'S COMPANION useful for travel, but have better books for home use.
