Crocheting School - Exquisite Crochet Patterns
Crocheting School - Exquisite Crochet Patterns

As a young girl, I loved crocheting, embroidering and doing other wool and thread-based craft. As I grew older and the cares of life piled up, I found that I had laid aside crocheting completely. Not Good!

To begin crocheting again, I started looking for a comprehensive book with easy instructions and exquisite patterns that I could use on their own or mix and match. I found just what I was looking for in this book!

’Crocheting School’ is really a complete crocheting course! It is chock full of lovely basic as well as more complicated and unique crochet stitches, patterns and techniques, which makes it a handy reference for any crochet lover – beginner, intermediate or advanced.

What I particularly like about the layout of this book is that the instructions are easy to understand and there is a handy guide to the front of the book for all the crochet abbreviations used.Additionally, there are clear photos of each pattern and technique at varying stages of completion, so that you can see exactly what your crochet pattern should look like from beginning to end.

If you are thinking about learning to crochet or have just started crocheting, you will be shown:

  • -What crochet material you need (hooks, yarn, needles, pins & bobbins).
  • -How to hold the yarn and crochet hook to begin crocheting.
  • -How to follow directions when reading a crochet pattern.
  • -Some common symbols that are used for crochet diagram (pattern) directions.
  • -Some basic stitches that are foundation stitches used in nearly every crochet pattern.

If you crochet at the intermediate or advanced level, you will be shown how to maneuver some often tricky techniques, such as:

  • -Multiple stitch increases and decreases.
  • -Making projects with geometric shapes.
  • -Making edgings & lace borders.
  • -Joining squares.
  • -Embroidering over crochet, and more.


If I have piqued your interest enough, then you can go out and get your very own affordable copy and give them a try or make a gift of it to someone who loves to crochet.

      Unfortunately, I too have put my crocheting on hold. I need to get back to it and the Crocheting School book sounds like the perfect item to do it. I love the examples you showed.

      @CalobrenaOmai: Sorry to hear about your crochet mishaps, CalobrenaOmai! That can be a downer. Try something once again. Make it simple to start like my coasters, on another lens, which only take 20 - 30 minutes each and, most importantly, hide away your work. Thanks for visiting and sharing. Have a blessed week.

      Well I started work on a cover for my drawing tablet and was looking really good too. It was halfway done till...*snip* *pull* My nephew thought it was okay to kidnap the yarn and pull apart my hard work. Gave up for a while then went back at it to create some wristlets and or arm warmers but those were strapped as well. Still enjoy the past time but I just got to remember to hide my work so that its not demolished before completion. Though come to think of it the only crocheting task that was completed was a hat I made for a doll I had. Even though it was accidental, it was supposed to be coaster but it turned into a cone shape. Lovely lens. Thanks for sharing.

      My crocheting and knitting takes place on a very small scale. A year or so ago, I crocheted some flowers for decorations in my paper arts projects, and more recently, I am attempted to crochet some of those pot scrubbers that are made from crinoline or netting or whatever it is called.

      I want to make some crochet butterflies, I will try that later this year. Great lens for those of us who are beginners or want to go beyond the basics like me.
