If you’ve been thinking about taking up crochet but didn’t know where to start, this guide for the absolute beginner is for you. This simple-to-follow project-based book takes you through the basic techniques of this fun and creative craft. You’ll learn everything you need to get started, including how to do the basic stitches, read charts and patterns, and finish off your work.
Learn to crochet using a range of techniques including double crochet, working in the round and making granny squares. Each is accompanied by a stylish project to make including a tea cosy, a tablet cover and mittens. Each technique is explained with the help of clear illustrations that will guide you every step of the way.

A troubleshooting section will guide you out of any difficulties too.
This book has some of my favourite things to make and has patterns that I still use for gifts.
