Reviews - What do customers think about Vogue Knitting on the Go: Crochet Basics (Vogue Knitting on the Go!)?
One of the best basic books that I have seen Mar 8, 2006
This is an admirable book on the basics of crocheting. The pictures explaining the stitches are unusually clear and the explanations are well written. There are also sections on yarns, hooks, finishing and care, as well as very useful descriptions of various accessories that are available. One cavil - the author recommends using safety pins as stitch markers. I don't like regular metal safety pins as the thread often gets caught in the spring - at least make sure that you are using non-rusting pins! Better still, there are plastic safety pins that don't have a spring.
There are patterns featuring different types of crochet: granny squares, flowers, circular.
Probably not for the experienced crocheter, but excellent for the beginner, or those of us who need a refresher from time to time.
It's an okay book Sep 14, 2005
Book shows you the a few of the very basic crochet stitches and then teaches you how to use the stitches in various items. I have seen better crochet books then this.
This book taught me when no other book or person could. Aug 7, 2005
This instructional book has color photos and detailed directions and desrciptions for basic stitches and patterns.It even shows you how to crochet granny squares, how to do blocking with various yarns and other easy basics. This book also has great tidbits on yarn types, wood vs. bamboo vs. plastic hooks and basic patterns to get you started on your first project very quickly. Its compact size makes it easy to carry in your purse if you crochet away from home.
