A great collection of "simple" scarves, afghans, shawls and hats for the "first timers", learning to crochet! A THICK book, full of great things! Projects by Marly Bird, an expert designer from Red heart yarns! Such fun reading through the book of her quotes, memories and stories. These are super easy patterns that even seasoned crocheters will love for those last minute gift ideas! Many of the patterns use the new bulky and super bulky yarns for lightening speed crochet that works up in a jiffy!
Yarn sizes used are size 4, 5, 6 and 7 (worsted to bulky weights) and crochet hooks from sizes G, H, J, K, L, and one uses a size 50 hook. Most patterns are done with the medium to larger size hooks. These really do work up fast! Good tips and reading about colors, fibers, tips and gauge. And a very good "get started" chapter for those that need first time help, like what to do if there is a knot in your yarn, and much more. A wealth of information and patterns!
