I really like this book, this book is aimed for beginners with useful introduction to crochet.  The book is in two parts the first part of the book is all about crochet patterns that are easy for newbies to learn the basics.  The second half of the book is all about crochet basics and the techniques tips and tricks. The book is full of the lovely photos's and very clear illustrations and well written.
This is a wonderful reference book using British Crochet terms. This book is perfect for anyone new to crochet.
