I just touched the surface of Tunisian crochet before I got this book. WOW, the stitches a SO well explained with words and pictures. I'm a very anxious beginner who will actually use this book in the future. I'm sorry I waited SO long (I'm 63 yrs old) to experiment with this new-to-me technique! A MUST have to create gorgeous stitches! I 100% agree with the other posts!
