If you've never bought a crochet stitch book then this book
is a fantastic place to start.
Why not use the stitches to create your own projects.
Crochet is so versatile you'll be amazed
how quickly you'll be designing your own things.


There are a lot of stitch books out there but this one is so different.
It offers so many different types, designs, use of other materials
that other books don't.


I was really amazed by the diversity of the stitches.
They are also explained in both written
and chart format so either way you should be able
to copy the designs.


Different colours, techniques & items such as beads
are used to bring so amazing different styles.

Some would be brilliant for afghans (blankets)
and some would be even better for garments.


At the start of the book is all the information you will need
to recreate the designs within the book;
Equipment & Materials
Essential Crochet Skills
Basic Stitches
Stitch Variations


The instructions are clear and easy to understand.
This really is a book you'll use for years to come.
I often take my stitch books down whenever I feel
like designing something.
They give you so much inspiration.

If you are new to crochet it's also a fantastic way
to increase your skills.
You can make a block of each and join them together
to make a beautiful blanket (afghan).

A fantastic attention to any library!
