Format: Paperback
It's no secret that I'm a fan of crochet stitch guides. You might even say that I'm a stitch guide collector. The Crochet Stitch Guide is designed to be an on-the-go stitch guide. The book is about the size of a folded piece of letter paper, and at 96 pages, it is thin enough to be truly portable.

The 86 stitches are organized into 7 sections.
Clusters includes 27 stitch patterns. Many of these are quite lacy, although there are several that have a denser feel.
Textured Stitches includes 7 stitch patterns that use post stitches, clusters, combinations of different heights, and working into the front or back loop to create textured surfaces.
Picots includes 6 lacy, picot stitch patterns.
V-stitches includes 8 variations on the v-stitch.
Special Stitches includes 10 patterns using a variety of stitches such as popcorns and spikes.
Shells includes 14 stitch patterns made with some combination of shells/fans.
Miscellaneous includes 14 patterns using a variety of stitches.

There is a short appendix in the back that includes a guide to U.S. crochet abbreviations and terminology.

Each stitch pattern includes a swatch photographed against a black background. Special stitches are explained at the beginning of the pattern, so you will not need to flip back and forth.

Since many contemporary stitch guides show swatch pictures against a white background, the stitch pictures in this book have a vintage feel. It isn't immediately clear why some patterns are in the Special Stitches section while others are in the Miscellaneous section. There are no international stitch symbols in this book, and only a brief explanation of the differences between U.S. and U.K. pattern terminology.

I have used it several times when looking for a new stitch to experiment with. Great directions for the stitches and chain multiples. A beginner could use this book as long as he/she can read a pattern. Definitely a good source of reference.

I love learning new stitches. And who better to learn from than than Rita Weiss... one of my crochet hero's.
I had the pleasure of meeting her and Jean Leinhauser in 2005 at the CGOA conference and I will never forget. V.V.

I now have enough stitches to keep me crocheting into the next millennium. Easy instructions and great pictures...makes it hard to do anything other than crochet. Anyone who crochets, knows what I mean.
