- I was very disappointed. It is Knit and Crochet but it is almost all Knit. (Posted on 3/19/2014)
- Decidedly average.
- I'm bicraftual, and hoped that a book that said "knit and crochet" would be roughly equal amounts of each. Sadly, the knitted patterns outweigh the crochet patterns by far. The patterns are ok, nothing amazing. Worth the few dollars I paid for it, NOT worth the incredible amount I paid for shipping. My fault for not looking into it more before I purchased.
