|From Easy Makes Me Happy!|
If you are more of a hands on, visual learner, like me, then this will quickly become your favorite book:
This is the 1st Edition - this is the one I have and LOVE or there is now a second edition available. (It has a different cover design) You can get this book just about anywhere. I got mine at Barnes & Noble (with a coupon and my membership discount of course!) because I just couldn't wait for Amazon to ship it. Don't be intimidated - this book WILL teach you how to crochet - even if you have NEVER done it before! Really! It also has basic patterns and more resources in the back of the book, which I have not even got to yet. I just can not say enough about this book. It is really wonderful. If you want to take a peek right now, check this out!
If after all this, you still feel its just not for you, but you really want those cute booties for the new baby, or a new throw for your bed, then head over to etsy. With 415,721 items for crochet, just now, you will find what you are looking for!
