Borrowed The Big Book of Weekend Crochet from the library recently, and thougth i’d post my thoughts. nice – had a handful of really neato patterns in it. the patterns were classic, applying basic stitches and details in an appealing and versatile form. the only drawback – too many baby patterns. I really liked several of the sweater/wraps/cardigan patterns, and one or two tank top patterns. The rest was not to my liking. Do I think it’s worth the 18.00$? No. But I might consider it used for way cheaper.
