The Professional Way to Crochet – Basic Course by Ruth I. Forbes – PDF download
If you have ever wanted to learn how to make the stitches, hold the hook, manage the yarn for the best processing and read crochet instructions, this little book with detailed illustrations is just what you have been looking for.
The easy-to-understand instructions take the guess work out of where to place your hook for traditional crochet stitches, the number of chain in the turning chain, use of symbols such as * and ( ), how to make a granny square in one or two colours, the difference between tension and gauge (and yes, there is a difference!) and much more.
The jump-start you need to begin the lifelong enjoyment of this versatile craft is in this wonderful little book, wire bound for easy viewing while you work.
For anyone who is interested in acquiring the basic skills of crochet, this book is also an excellent reference book.
