About the Author

Kim Guzman is an award-winning designer of knit and crochet projects, including Tunisian crochet. She has authored over a dozen pattern books, and her designs have appeared many times in a wide variety of yarn craft magazines. "My goal is to produce crocheted items which more closely resemble knitted garments," Kim says. "It's not that I always want to mimic knitting. I simply want my crochet garments to have the same drape and feel of my knitted garments." You can see more of Kim's creations at KimaneDesigns.net and CrochetKim.com. She maintains a blog called WIPs 'N Chains at KimGuzman.com/blog and is an active member of Ravelry.com.

More About the Author

"There isn't often a day when you won't find me without a crochet hook or my knitting needles in my hands! Turning these loves into a full-time career that fulfills my desire for creativity is like a dream come true."

Kim Guzman is an award-winning teacher and crochet pattern designer. She writes a variety of patterns including garments, home decor, accessories and gift items.

Kim has authored 12 books, most of them in her favorite form of crochet--Tunisian crochet. Tunisian crochet offers Kim more flexibility in her designing due to its unique look, which can mimic knitting or weaving, depending on the stitches used while still maintaining crochet's ease. Being able to combine these looks together in one project brings all needlework together and makes Tunisian crochet a favorite among many.

You may often hear that Tunisian crochet is the "step-child" of knitting and crochet. "Not so," says Kim, "it's more like the best of both worlds!"

Her latest books, The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Tunisian Crochet and Tunisian Cables to Crochet, offer something for everyone for beginner to advanced.

Kim's portfolio of her work can be found at www.kimguzman.com. Or, you can follow her on her blog where she discusses the day-to-day activities of designing as well as her newly-found pastime of canning and preserving food.

Format: Paperback
The Tunisian Crochet Stitch Guide by Kim Guzman is a pattern booklet featuring 61 Tunisian crochet stitch patterns.

The booklet begins with an introduction to reading international stitch symbols and understanding "multiples" in stitch patterns. This introduction is followed by 14 basic stitch patterns, including common names in US terminology. The remaining stitches are organized into three sections: Typical Stitches (17 stitch patterns including classics like the moss stitch and column variations), Color Stitches (11 stitch patterns), and Lace Stitches (18 stitch patterns). Each pattern includes a swatch photo and a large, clear pattern in stitch symbols. The booklet ends with a pattern for a scarf, which is written in both pattern abbreviations and symbols, and a general instructions section that explains the basic Tunisian crochet stitches with descriptions and process photos.

The Tunisian Crochet Stitch Guide is one of the new Leisure Arts booklets and is about the size of a piece of letter paper folded in half. The small size makes the booklet more portable, but the downside is that some of the swatch pictures are not very large. There are no difficulty levels indicated. The book emphasizes international stitch symbols, so crocheters who prefer written patterns will have to adapt. (On the plus side, learning to read these symbols opens up literally a world of new patterns!) Although the booklet is limited to Tunisian crochet stitches, there is an interesting variety of fabric densities and styles.

I would recommend this booklet to crocheters who are beginning to explore Tunisian crochet, experienced Tunisian crocheters who are looking for a definitive US stitch guide, and those who are budding designers.

I like this guide, it is small enough to fit any bag for referencing.
It is clear, concise, color photos provide the reader with step-by-step instructions to learn the Tunisian Crochet stitches. This is a very good investment, and a must have for any crocheter, beginner, intermeidate or advanced. The price is right for adding economic value for any purchaser.

I only wish there were more. I am a crochet designer, and look forward to making something great with one of these stitch patterns. There are all types of patterns in this book, from textured, colorwor, lace, even pineapples!! There are many unconventional stitches here, you will not find these in most books on Tunisian crochet. A must have if you are into Tunisian crochet.

I was surprised by the size. It is 5 x 8, not full size. It is nicely written with colorful and clear photos, and printed on glossy paper. There are a limited number of pictures explaining this type of crochet for a beginner. Would best be used by a person who understands the basics and wants more stitch options. Only one complete pattern instruction.

This is a GREAT book for a beginner. You should already know a the basics of crochet though. The instructions are easy to follow and has great pictures. Had no trouble learning the stitches.

Mostly as a dictionary. OK as a guide reference if you are already familiar with the stitches, not for Beginners

I purchased this book with the hopes that it would introduce me to many new stitches that I could use on upcoming projects. While it did have many new stitches, I was disappointed in the quality of some of the photography (light colored stitches on a light colored background, etc.) Also the overall design of the book looked like it had been adopted from a previous version and was therefore clunky. It has great content, but lacks on presentation.
