Publisher Comments:

Every avid crocheter has faced this dilemma: deep into a project at midnight, just trying to finish one more row, and, then . . . oh no, a dropped stitch three rows back! Help! If only there was a 24-hour hotline to answer every question a crocheter might encounter. Well, now there is, with The Crochet Answer Book. The expert authors, Margaret Radcliffe and Edie Eckman, leave no question unanswered, no quandry unaddressed. Each book contains detailed, illustrated answers to literally hundreds of questions, from the common to the more unusual:

• Are certain needles better for certain yarns?

• How do I start a circle in crochet?

• What if I dropped a stitch several rows back?

• Why do my edges tend to curl up?

• Can you use a different weight yarn than the pattern calls for?

• What can I do to keep my yarns from tangling up?

• Oops, I see my ribbing is way too tight. Now what?

Covering the whole range of situations a beginner is likely to face, along with the problems that may arise for those working more advanced patterns, this Answer Book will help crocheters of all levels. Each book is packaged in a small, take-along trim size, in a friendly-to-use Q& A format, and belongs in the bag of every crocheter. Available 24/7, The Crochet Answer Book is always open, ready for yarn lovers to browse and consult to their heart’ s content.

Synopsis:

Wouldn't it boost your confidence to have an experienced and confident crocheter on call, day and night, offering assistance when needed? Most of us aren't fortunate enough to have that kind of aid, but now there is help available 24/7 with The Crochet Answer Book.

Being a "good" crocheter is not about making perfectly stitched, elaborate, artful creations. It is rather a matter of confidence. You need to be confident in what you are doing and in how to figure out what to do if things aren't going quite right. Understanding why you do certain things and why they turn out the way they do increases confidence and leads to successful crocheting.

This book answers some of the most common questions crocheters have, and anticipates some questions you didn't know you had. The Crochet Answer Book will lead you down the road to gaining the confidence that makes for good crocheting.

Very nice handy size to carry in your crochet bag, for answers to potential problems. Eckman has an excellent way of explaining common problems, how to avoid them, and how to fix them. Together with her experience in teaching, she is very competent at explaining and illustrating problems and how to solve them. If you can only carry one crochet book with you, this would be the one. Highly recommended.
