Beginner-Friendly Crochet by Rita Weiss and Mary Ann Frits presents a wide assortment of crochet designs that a beginner can make with ease and confidence. Because inexperienced crocheters can become overwhelmed if they dive into a complex pattern too soon, this book is filled with attractive projects that require only a minimum of skill, and the results are something any crocheter might want to use or give as a gift. Projects include a cup cosy, coaster, dishcloth, three throws, three scarves, a cowl, hooded scarf, checkerboard pocket scarf, ear warmer, women's mittens, tablet cosy, mini tote with shoulder strap, child's hat and scarf, teen's hat, wrist and leg warmers. Basic crochet tips and stitch diagrams are included.
