4.0 out of 5 stars Great starter stitch dictionary 10 May 2013
By Underground Crafter - Published on
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. There is no index, and there are no illustrations to demonstrate unusual stitches.

Overall, this is a solid stitch guide for a crocheter without an extensive stitch guide collection. If you have an existing American stitch guide collection, you may want to skip this book because some of the patterns will be familiar. On the other hand, the portability of this book makes it a good addition for a crocheter who travels a lot or crochets during while commuting.

Full disclosure: A free review copy of Crochet Stitch Guide was provided by Leisure Arts. Although I accept free products for review, I do not accept additional compensation, nor do I guarantee a positive review. My reviews are based entirely on my honest opinions.

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Little book with big lace stitches 31 May 2013
By Rudy Fan - Published on
This little book is full of lace crochet stitches so a better title would be, "Crochet Lace Stitch Guide", but no matter, it's still a very worthwhile addition to the stitch guide 'guides'.

One thing I really love about the book is the abundance of clear, beautiful photos. They feature colorful crochet stitches done in a number 2, fine weight yarn. The size and added luster to this yarn helps with seeing the definition of each stitch. The black background also helps the design to stand out even further. And these aren't tiny pictures; some take up half of the page. I really appreciate these pics!

I also like the size of the book. This little guy can be taken anywhere, just pop it in your yarn bag or even your purse. It won't take up much space or drag you down with weight. But still, it jams 84 stitches inside, so it's doesn't skimp on patterns.

Right up front in the beginning of each pattern, the main stitch is identified and the instructions are detailed. And each design using these stitches has a name, not just a number. I like that.

Best of all, this book features Multiples! Yeah! That means you can make whatever you want and know, from the start, how many chains to make in your foundation row.

I got this from my local library, but it's definitely going in my cart. I envision all kinds of crochet fun in my future just using this little book. :-)
