Stoller's Stitch 'N Bitch and Stitch 'N Bitch Nation have become icons of the knitting craze: every hip young needleworker has at least one of them next to the yarn stash. Now, she uses the same approach that made her knitting books so successful in this entrée to sexed-up hookwork that takes pains to show crocheting isn't for grandma anymore. Stoller provides everything short of the hook and yarn a crafter will need to learn how to crochet. From a history of the craft to mind-bogglingly complete instructions and dozens of charted and explained patterns (the majority of which are for women's clothing and accessories-there are no afghans here), it's all presented in Stoller's bright, witty style and accompanied by cheery color photographs. Beginners will like the easy construction of the "Stripes (and Stripes) Forever Scarf," and intermediate crocheters will enjoy whipping up a "Cupcake," a purple sweater confection. Experienced crocheters have patterns here too, such as the astonishing lace "Go For Baroque" sweater. This latest entry into the Stitch 'N Bitch canon is sure to be another bestseller.

As well as being my favorite learn to crochet resource his book was also the number one learn to crochet (for adults) book that I recommended when I worked at a yarn store. Many adults and teens got a kick out of the title and the writing style is really entertaining. It has many different patterns not only patterns for scarfs and other rectangular items and it has very clear instructions in both a written and illustrated format as well as some nice history and general information on yarn types and different hook types.
I'm working on the "Knot Ugly" shrug now and will likely get it completed tonight. I only have the edging and sewing the sleeves together left. Again, the pattern could have been a bit clearer in a few spots, but Google came to the rescue.
I would recommend this to someone with some experience crocheting, but this is only based on the 2 patterns I have tried so far. The other patterns may be clearer. All in all the book has a great variety of designs, for men and women. I'm thinking of working on the "Exchange Bag" next. So cute!
