Book Review: Crochet Master Class

Posted in News on April 1st, 2014 by Claire Ortega-Reyes – 3 Comments
One of the most ambitious crochet books I’ve come across is Crochet Master Class: Lessons and Projects from Today’s Top Crocheters by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss. Don’t let the title intimidate you–the words “master” and “class” have duplicate definitions and could be misunderstood at first glance. It’s not a book for crochet masters; it’s a book by them.

If you love learning about new crochet techniques, read on.
