I love to dabble in crochet. I’m not advanced in my skills but I have managed to turn out several very nice things including a full size blanket with puppy faces. I enjoyed looking through this book and plan to try several of the patterns. They each read in an easy to understand language with charts for sizes, abbreviations, etc. I’m very happy to see patterns inside for the pictures you see on the cover. Overall this will be a very nice book to add to my crochet library. I received an evaluation copy in exchange for my opinion which may not mirror your own.
