I actually really like this cover and it is what attracted me. It is a pretty comprehensive book covering a range of stitches and issues that any beginner or intermediate crocheter could face. I have made one thing from it - a baby blanket - which turned out well, but needed a lot of modification from me as the finish would not have been as neat. Overall, a decent buy. One of the best and easiest to follow that I've come across lately.
Don't let the bland cover put you off! -
Really useful if you are learning to crochet. I have used this to cross-reference with my other crochet book if I get stuck. Really clear instructions. Shame the cover is a bit boring really.
Excellent reference book with projects too! -
Super crochet book which will have everything you need in one place. Great starting point and lovely projects. The Book People often seem to have it at an amazing price, given that its a hardback, so grab it while it's a bargain!
Excellent book, clear and easy-to-follow instructions on the various stitches, lovely to have for reference when following patterns from elsewhere.

A very good little book taking you from basics onwards, a good stitch library and comprehensive British instructions (as opposed to American which can be confusing).
