Publisher Comments:

A classic of stitchwork, The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs has now been updated with all-new diagrams and full-color photography, and showcases 500 designs—from traditional favorites to originals found nowhere else. There are soft and lacy patterns; some that mimic knitting, weaving, or patchwork; and others that use large openwork and popcorn stitches. And every stitch design features a photo, reader-friendly instructions, and a diagram showing each stitch and its placement—so its easy to understand the entire design at a glance. The guide also includes a pictorial index, which displays the complete pattern, and directions for all basic crochet stitches. Both beginners and experienced crocheters alike will turn to this invaluable reference for years to come.
A Main Selection of the Crafter's Choice Book Club.

I'll have warm and toasty toes this season, thanks to the directions in this easy-to-follow and very complete book. My 15-year-old daughter taught herself to crochet by sitting down with these instructions one rainy afternoon and our life hasn't been the same since: she's crafted beautiful afghans, scarves and hats, and has now moved on to mittens and just last night...slipper sox. Ah, such bliss as another damp Northwest winter sets in!
