Book Review: The Cool Girl’s Guide to Crochet



I got this book, The Cool Girl’s Guide to Crochet, a while back for my birthday, and I have been meaning to share my thoughts about it. Overall, it’s a fun book.

The beginning of the book gives some basic tutorials on crocheting, which is helpful for anyone getting into crochet. I have heard some negative reviews on Amazon, stating that the book isn’t very good for someone brand new to crochet, so keep that in mind.

The book also has several crochet projects, and some of them are actually cool (Sometimes things that label themselves cool are actually quite the opposite. There’s a pattern for a beanie hat, a scarf, a couple of blankets, different purses, and some other fun items. The wide variety of projects makes it good for me, because I like to try new things.

As I said, on Amazon, there were several negative reviews, but overall for me, I love The Cool Girl’s Guide to Crochet.

Just thought that I would let everyone know that Craft Tutorials has moved to

    Have you made any of the projects from the book? If so, post pics. If not, are there any that you are planning on or thinking about making? I want to start crocheting again, but the only thing I knew how to make were scarves.

    I haven’t made any of the projects yet, but I want to start with the beanie. It looks really cool.

    As for making things beyond scarves, you should try it! A good resource for trying new things is They are always making new things and are willing to help you if you run into trouble.

  3. I’ve got this book to (only in Dutch). I really like the projects, especially the hat.
