I've been dying to make the elephant rug that is in this book for months now. It's literally the reason I started improving my crocheting skills. Finding a book that included it and it's matching accessory, as well as the many other rug/floormat patterns and their accessories was a total score. Also. the price is great for the book, as the patterns, sold separately on Ravelry, tend to cost $5 or more. So buying the whole book for the price of three-four patterns is a great steal!
And they are defiantly worth the hype! Not only is each pattern written out, but it's also charted, so it's available in whatever is best for you. There are also tips for those who crochet left handed.
Cannot wait to get started!
