    "While this is a highly reviewed book that likely contains a bunch of information about crochet, I wonder if it is written with beginners in mind. I see some other crochet books in the related items that specifically mention beginners which may be a better alternative."

    "There seems to be a lot of books on crochet. It's hard to find something that meets your own personal preferences. I found The Crochet Answer Book, and ironically, the name was what caught my attention. I thought it was exactly what I needed, the answer to my questions about crochet. It definitely delivered. I'm a novice at the fine art of crochet but this book really helped me improve my techniques. I'm knitting mittens and scarves now!"

    "I recently took up crocheting and this book was recommended as a must have for beginners. This photo guide is great for visual learners like myself. The photographs are clear so you can really see each step in the process. Very organized with detailed printed instructions for every stitch and also includes patterns for beginners. The only con is that the pictures and instructions do take up a lot of the page. So it's a lot of flipping back and forth between pages, but still this is by far the most helpful guide I've ever purchased."
