The Big Book of Crochet Stitches
by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss
|The Big Book of Crochet Stitches|
A visually appealing and colorful Contents page highlights the fifteen categories of stitch types within from Bobbles and Popcorns to Fans and Picots.
Truly a dictionary of stitches, this book is not based on gauge but on multiples. Colorful, clear photography presents each stitch in a 2 1/2 x 3-inch swatch format which is ample, along with the stitch instructions, for learners from beginning to advanced skills.

For those who prefer symbol crochet, unfortunately, diagrams are not to be found in this volume of hundreds of stitches and 192 pages. This should not be a deterrant; and every crocheter will want to have The Big Book of Crochet Stitches in their personal library, both as an important reference and as a fond memento of Jean Leinhauser! It retails for $19.99 and is also available as an e-book for $14.99.
