Pros: easy to follow, large photos, unique projects
I first got this book at the local library, and loved it so much that I had to buy a copy for myself. Way to Crochet is an excellent family activity book to teach everyone in your family to crochet. There are very easy to follow instructions, a supply list, and even a whole section on different yarns and crochet hooks. Some of the projects include friendship braclets, pet blanket, crocheted rings, bath mitt, scarf, fabric purse, plastic grocery sack purse, backpack, and pillow. This book shows you how to work with both yarn and crochet thread, so its great for adults as well as kids.
I recently brought this book to church with me and now I am teaching kids in Sunday School to crochet. They love it!
