This book is one of the best books ever produced as a guide to knit and crochet stitches. It is a shame it is now out of print along with mon tricot magazines, which I used to buy on a regular basis, and they had some fabulous patterns in them.
This book is wonderful for knitters and crocheters who want to make their own designs and can't quite find the right stitch to make them in. It also has knitting and crochet instructions and making up guides too. The conversion to other nationalities knitting terms is handy as well. Along with the traditional knitting and crochet techniques it also shows you how to do hairpin crochet and Tunisian crochet. The book is packed full of useful hints and techniques for everything. It is a must have for all knitters and crocheters.
