How I started...with my love of crochet.
This was my first "how to" crochet book that I purchased back in the late 1980s to learn how to crochet. I don't know if the author - Maggie Righetti - is still with us. I hope she is and doing well. This is an easy to read and follow book with great pictures, drawings and diagrams. When I took up crocheting (for the 3rd time) last year I read this book over from front to back while on our long RV trip to Texas. After reading it through I started practicing all the stitches as we started on our way back home. By the time I got home I could do all the basic stitches and managed to practice some fancy ones too!
If you ever wanted to crochet but didn't think you had the patience please get a good instruction book like this one and do it. I am not a person of great patience (just ask my hubby...) but if I can crochet you can too. The best thing about crocheting is if you make a mistake just undo it and try again. I just love it - it's very calming to the soul. And the creative possibilities are endless in terms of colors and combinations!
Let me know if this inspires you to start crocheting.
If you already crochet "What inspired YOU to start?"
