Review by jenn2d2
With clear, concise instructions and good, simple patterns, the "Chicks with Sticks" guide you through learning how to crochet. The book gives you a good background in choosing the right yarn for your projects, and walks you carefully through the beginning stitches and a few cool techniques. The illustrations are good, but lacking in a little detail which would have made them perfect. Each project builds on the strengths of the previous ones, and each chapter adds a bit more depth to your knowledge. By the time you finish, it feels like you can begin to tackle just about anything.
