This is a beautifully put together guide to crochet patterns. It is well segmented into different types of crochet including Tunisian and overlaying crochet patterns. The sections are coloured even down to the patterns being crochetted in differen coloured wools.
If you are after a book that will show you a huge variety of stitch patterns then this is the book for you. For example if making a sampler blanket of different patterned squares or if you are confident to make changes to patterns or create your own designs.
It is however not a book for the beginner. Unless however you want to look at what you will be able to do int he future & scan the book for inspiration to keep you going through the learning part of crochet.
I have given it 4 out of 5 as although I love this book it is not for everyone.

I love crochet stitch symbol diagrams. The Ones in the crochet Bible are well drawn and clear. The stitch key is on the same page! yes every left hand side page has the key to the stitches you will use for each crochet pattern.Need to change colour .It shows you the row you change it as it is in a different colour in the diagram. You can crochet the pattern just using the diagrams alone.This is quicker.
The crochet patterns are seen clearly in a colour photographs. They are put into crochet type categories,like fans,shells,openwork,,clusters,puffs,bobbles,relief,,motifs and filet,tunisian stitches.If you are new to crochet the' how to 'part is very easy to understand.I think this is a great book if you are looking for a crochet pattern for a blanket,garment,or home item.

Please refer to the discussion I have started about this crochet book as a result of E. Kimber's disapointment with the book - well worth a read! According to 'The Knitting & Crochet Guild' trading website the copy which has a doiley shown at the bottom of the front cover must be the one with American terminology - the KCG show an alternative cover which states it has English terminology. So, if you are English get the alternative cover!
Otherwise a splendid book and well thought out if you can find the correct copy for you!
