Reviews - What do customers think about Crochet Inspiration?
good choice May 14, 2008
This book is really helpful. A lot of patterns, I'm very happy for diagrams, it's more clear and practical for me. And the book is very big, great quality of paper and print, so it would be nice gift for any crocheter.
Crochet Inspiration is just what it says Mar 28, 2008
What a great book. I already have so many ideas that I have started a long to do list. I definitely have my moneys worth.
Crochet - Technical Newness Feb 8, 2008
This is a book you need in your collection. It's one you'll reach for when you want to work with a new stitch, pattern or motif. The pictures are very clear and the choices of yarn are inspiring.
It's an excellent book for any crocheter who would move to the next level Jan 9, 2008
Designer Sasha Kagan creates a fine crochet reference book with CROCHET INSPIRATION, a gathering of designs organizing some 200 of her swatch creations into four categories for eleven new projects. Some basic familiarity with crochet instruction abbreviations will lend to a quick understanding of the different crochet techniques presented here, while color close-up photos allow for easy assessment of project complexity and achievement. It's an excellent book for any crocheter who would move to the next level - and for collections catering to them.

pleasantly surprised Nov 6, 2007
I initially checked out this book from my local library. Once I was able to really get into it, I was hooked. My favorite feature of this book would probably be the very beautiful, colorful & LARGE pictures for each stitch. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I also like how all the different stitches are divided into chapters. So if u want to learn some new ways to make a granny square or create a pretty flower just go to that section. My only dislike are the patterns given. None really are my thing, but all the various designs given should inspire you. Which, I guess was the authors point!
