Sarah-Jayne Fragola is the creator of Bella Coco Crochet, which she started in 2011.

If you are looking for a comprehensive, beginner's guide to crochet, this is the book for you. 

Starting with a section on hook types, your essential crochet kit and the yarns you'll need, you are guided by Sarah-Jayne through the key crochet stitches you'll need before you get stuck in. Each stitch – described using UK terms – is accompanied by clear step-by-step instructions and photographs, and handy quick-stitch boxes that include key stitch details as well as the US equivalents.

Once you've conquered your stitches, get stuck into your first projects, starting from the easiest designs to the more complex ones to crochet.

With each new project, learn a new technique to gradually build your knowledge and familiarity with crocheting.

To reward your efforts, Sarah-Jayne then treats you to a section on advanced stitches that you can use to crochet her 'Showstopper Blanket' – a beautiful, textured blanket that you'd be proud to drape on your bed or sofa.

These gorgeous patterns will inspire crochet novices and more confident crocheters alike.

Over the last few years, Sarah-Jayne Fragola has built up an enviable online reputation as a crochet expert with her YouTube tutorials under the name Bella Coco. With this book, she has created a well-laid-out guide for the complete beginner. The first sections cover the basics such as the 'anatomy of a crochet hook'. There is a table of the different sizing schemes with the recommendations that 'the most accurate measurements for a hook is the metric sizing'. The types of hooks now available are described. After a brief look at other useful equipment, there is a section on the different ways yarns are presented (balls, skeins, hanks, etc.) and how to interpret both yarn weights and types. The following section on colour presents an easy-to-follow look at the colour wheel theory. The book then moves on to giving step-by-step instructions on the basic crochet stitches - all well illustrated by clear photographs [...] Useful information is then given on swatching, the different terminology and abbreviations used within UK and USA patterns, and the international symbols for charting patterns. This general information part of the book covers the various blocking techniques. The remaining part of the book is taken up with the nine projects which are 'arranged in order of difficulty, from the easiest to the more complex'. Sarah-Jayne has 'designed the projects so that new techniques are added with each one'. This book has been very well produced and will be of great benefit to anyone wanting to start on this wonderful craft. It would also be good for anyone wanting to increase their confidence and skill. - LInde Merrick, Slip Knot
