Neat format. Good pictures of the worked stitches, which are explained by symbol charts and written terms. Although most charts are in strong, colours some are in a faint beige, which on the white background are not easy to see, especially when the pattern is an intricate one. An excellent feature is the stitch key alongside each page. It saves an awful lot of flicking back and forth when attempting a new pattern.

I bought this book after it was recommended by a fellow crocheter, and I have to say it has been absolutely marvellous!

I'm self-taught when it comes to crochet, and having used the internet for all my learning I wasn't sure I really needed to buy a book, however there isn't a day gone by since I've had it that I haven't referred to it.

The layout is excellent, your basic 'how to get started' details for those new to crochet (or a particular technique) is given at the beginning, followed by a 'Stitch Selector' section that shows each stitch available in the book. These clear photos are a swatch of crochet done in that stitch, allowing you to browse through them when looking for inspiration. A page is then dedicated to each stitch, with a picture of the swatch, the pattern in diagram format, and easy to follow instructions. The number of multiple stitches required for each stitch is also provided, as well as a symbol key for the pattern diagram.

It really is a go-to for new crocheters and experts alike. Would definitely recommend.

Bought this and another crochet book for my wife for Christmas as she really wanted to learn how to crochet from scratch. Bingo! These books have been brilliant for her and she loves crocheting now. Granny square blanket coming on a treat, as well as many other projects she is loving.

Just taught myself to crochet and this book has helped to develop the skill from basic into being able to produce very impressive items. Easy to follow and so much choice on stitches. I will never need another book on crochet stitches again. Good buy for any level

Excellent product: instructions for stitches clear and more than adequate illustrations. A valuable investment for experienced and new crocheters and very good value for money.

Just received the book, Handbook of Crochet Stitches, and although I am a beginner to the art, will find the basic techniques quite easy to follow from the 'well illustrated drawing of stitches. It is a lovely little book but would have been perfect had it been presented in a ring binder format (so it can lie it flat as you work from it). It would have also been nice to see the more advanced stitches better explained. Overall, though, I am not displeased with the purchase and it will become, Im sure, a great reference book as I master the techniques of Crocheting,

I brought this book to add to my collection and looking though the pages I can see I will be able to take a simple garment to make it something special.
