★★★★★ "Major Help - Im a beginner and there were crochet videos with all the crochet language that i didnt understand and this decoder helped me decipher the videos!! Lovvvve it!" -by: Mom of 4girls! OMG!

★★★★★ 'Just as described! - this app is amazing cheat sheet to translate pattern abbreviations into words. the description specifically says that this is not a tutorial or instructions for crochet - you should already have those skillz if you need this tool!' -by: brodie74

★★★★★ 'Very helpful app - This is not an app for someone wanting to learn to crochet, you already need those skills. However, it is a great app for those with crochet experience who are ready to write their own patterns or just need some reference with abbreviations. It specifically states it isn't a tutorial. This app is strictly reference and does just what it says it will.' -by: Jenflips

Great job on update

It used to be a two star app, tough to see the symbols, no info other than definitions. Now the symbols are clear, and you get more info. Definitely worth 99 cents!

Exactly what I needed!

Now I've got a great reference on my phone! No more flipping through pages of stuff. And I can decipher a diagram!

Just Ok.

Ok. Not exactly what I thought I would get, bare to minimal stitches and information. Like stated before all of this info is easily available for free. Also the stitch instructions aren't a very easy to follow, especially if you are a beginner.
