The patterns in this book are all wonderful! They are written in US crochet terms and are written in multiple sizes so there is a fit for almost anyone. Each pattern has all relevant information such as the finished sizes (in inches and centimeters), yarn and other materials needed, and gauge information. The patterns are all clearly written and easy to understand. Stitch counts are even included at the end of each row so you know you are on the right track. These sock patterns also use a variety of beautiful yarns including yarn from Lion Brand Yarns, Cascade Yarns, SweetGeorgia Yarns, and more.
Here are a few of my favorite projects from Step Into Crochet:
In addition to the amazing techniques and crochet patterns, Step Into Crochet includes a list of abbreviations used in the book, some basic crochet techniques, and additional resources.
