Missing a lot of detail Review by Barbara
Rating

I bought the book because I was excited about the "Entwined Ear Warmer" pattern. I am an experienced crocheter but this pattern is missing the basics of the pattern. It's going to be impossible to figure out and I'm very disappointed. I'm going to return the book.

Good but missing a bit of detail Review by Christine
Rating

I received the book and was excited to start. Having crocheted since childhood I consider myself as intermediate to expert for most stitches but not strong in some areas. I wanted to make the pork pie hat but imagine my frustration when there are no diagrams for the stitches? I have started it many times over and I do not get the same look as the book. Considering the first row is single crochet, there really aren't "vertical stitches" and doing two on same holes gets real tough. Maybe a errata page with diagrams would help. I am now, not very excited about the book at all.
