" Made the monster slippers. Super cute pattern, a little hard to follow at times. Especially tricky to attach upper to sole with minimum guidance. Would have appreciated clearer info about yarn substitutions. Recommended, but definitely for intermediate crocheters + who have a little extra time and patience on their hands. " said.

"There are so many adorable patterns in this book I couldn't resist picking up a copy for my craft shelf. I've made a couple of them and while they did turn out lovely and I'm pleased with the end product, there were several frustrating moments trying to interpret the directions. In the two patterns I've used so far I have found instances where the stitch count appears to be off, errors in the pattern, and unclear directions. I've been able to correct some problems, and fudge through others, but I'm left a little disappointed." said.

"A fellow crafter friend from Kansas City sent me this book for Christmas. I love it!! If you have kids in your life and you crochet, you will love it, too. Presented in fun sections like Getting Started, Head & Shoulders, Fingers, Knees, and Toes, and The Play Room, and more, the patterns are ideal for both boys and girls, some specific but mostly the appeal will be to both. Stitch up a crown, a fox stole, Harry Potter-like sorting wizard hats! Or how about baby ballet slippers or beastie feet slippers (sizes from 0-6 mo up to 6 years). Hedgehog mittens caught my eye and so did a mermaid tail (snuggy) for a wee one, 0-6 mo (mermaid tails are all over Pinterest). There are a handful of sweet sweaters, capes, cosy wraps, too but my absolute fave is a floor cushion in the shape of a sleepy octopus, perfect for lounging which all wee boys like to do! That will be the first project I'll make, I think...or maybe the hedgehog mittens....30 projects in all that take maybe a day or two to make and a range of skill levels, with easy to follow instructions, a perfect book for the playful crocheter among you hookers! " said.

" I was pretty excited about this book because there are some adorable-looking patterns in it. After trying a couple, though, I wondered if the author got anyone to test the patterns for her at all. Maybe it was just me (and my mom), but the ones I tried were not written very clearly. I actually gave up after a while. I'd like to try again, though, because the patterns really are cute. Maybe with some extra effort and creative thinking on my part, the patterns might be decipherable. " said.
