I bought my copy when it first came out and have used the Couch Lizard pattern many times! The instructions do take a bit of patience to figure out, but very worth the effort!

The instructions are very difficult to follow. I found myself "translating" to common terminology and even then not really following along. Wish I had read reviews before I purchased.

Like others, I feel there should have been more illustrations on how to make each stitch is made. I am glad I read the review because I was beginning to think that I had a problem in comprehension. I am a visual person. If I can see how something is done, I can duplicate it. But to try to follow from dubious terms is not easy to me. The application is probably excellent once one learns or figures out how to apply it. It would have been more helpful if both "old" and "Elmore" stitches were demonstrated together, so the difference can be seen. Overall it is still a good book once the stitches are mastered. A video would indeed be very helpful is demonstrating how each stitch is made.

This book was published in 1991, and is supposed to save you time and money. I have found some of the stitches in online tutorials, but I don't see how they save time or money on yarn. I have been crocheting for 48 years, and plan to keep on with the typical stitches and tried-and-true old methods out there.

This item should come with a warning that he uses the pencil grip as opposed to the knife grip. He also uses an old fashioned method of holding the yarn. In addition he uses his own terminology instead of common terms, which may cause a lot of confusion. I agree more pictures of the stitches would help, especially with his using of his own terms. I do like his granny square corners using the Tower Pattern and piggyback stitches.
