Book Review: The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller


The Good
This book is a must-have for beginning crocheters. It explains all of the crochet basics in a clear and entertaining way with good graphic accompaniment. The patterns in this book are fun and young. My copy is very worn from all of the times I've thumbed through it for direction. I would not hesitate to purchase this book for a friend. There's even a pattern for fuzzy bunny slippers!

The Bad
This book has quite a few errors, and errors are certainly not conducive to coherent crochet patterns. There is an error correction page, but it's annoying to have to keep a loose page inside a book. All of the patterns are by different authors. This isn't a problem, but it is worth noting that many of the book's patterns can now be found distributed by those authors for free on Ravelry.

The Verdict
On a scale of yes to no, this book is a yes.
