Sorry for the confusion but this is what I meant:
The beginner skill level states, Projects for first-time crocheters using basic stitches. Minimal shaping.

What are the basic stitches and what stitches are minimal shaping? I need this explained for each skill level.

Easy: What is repetive stitch patterns, simple color changes, and simple shaping and finishing?

Intermediate:What are techniques, and mid-level shaping and finishing?

Experienced: What are intricate stitch patterns, techniques and dimension, non-repeating patterns, multi-color techniques, detailed shaping and refined finishing?
I got this information from and other crochet books.
