This book is a good starting point for learning Tunisian Crochet Review by Paisley Charms

I loved this book. I'd expect to find this caliber of book in a course syllabus. I liked the way it is organized. The drawings are well done, however, I could have used a few more. I did find a few typos. I want to create a few of the projects included in the book. This technique is a more advanced crochet skill. I've recommended it to my crochet friends for when they get bored with regular crochet.

Can't wait to get started! Review by Norma

I have only just received this (I'm in the UK) so haven't reached the stage of following a pattern in detail, but I'm really pleased. There are so many things in here I'd like to make, and I like the organisation of the book too, so I can work my way through different techniques. I'm very happy with this!
