Crochet Master Class

I got this book.

Do NOT waste your money on it

Theres 190 pages, lots of pictures of stuff other people did, but only about 18 things to do, and none of them the nice ones as shown as examples. In short, it sounds like there should be so  much information but, for the most part its like looking at knitting patterns, flat words of “rnd 14: ch3, dc in same st as ch 3|: * work (3 dc, ch3, 3 dc) in nexy ch-3 sp, work (2 dc, ch3, 2dc) in next ch-3 sp; repeat from * around, ending 2dc in last ch-3 sp, ch3 join with a sl in top of beg ch-3 fasten off.”

While obviously we all see amazing stuff and want to see it, and all have to start with something simple, but, none of the projects are inspiring and few actually show hints at how a more complex one would work. It would be a little like taking the top 10 best selling books and showing you page 1 only of each with a picture of the cover, and a few pages on the author.. Great but doesnt help you necessarily get much jist of the story.

  1. Thanks for the heads up Liz. I am tempted by too many books, always glad to know when one is a waste.

    I know a lot of things are personal taste, but something claiming to be "master class" really covers very very little and while it tries to cover fillet, tunisian, irish crochet etc, what it actually gives you to make with it, would be like attending a painting master course, and being given a paint by numbers that has like 5 sections to paint and you're done.
