The Crochet Stitch Dictionary is full of wonderful information!

Everyone needs a stitch dictionary.  Whether it’s to learn a stitch for that great new pattern you found or better yet to start designing your own work!

The “Getting Started” section covers some of the basic tools, skills, stitches and stitch variations to start you off right.  The next section is the meat of the book, the “Stitch Dictionary.”  Some of the great stitches include:

Paired Single

Staggered Double Crochet Pair

Waffle

Spider

Floret

Moss

Pike

Granule

Close Scallop

Peacock

Fantail

Picot Ridge

Crow’s Foot Lattice

Raised Pineapple

Thistle

And the list goes on!

Each stitch has a sample swatch, clear step-by-step color photos and written directions.  A symbols chart for a visual map.  Special stitch instructions are clear and concise.  The dictionary is organized in nine families of stitches:

Basic Stitches

Fans & Shells

Clusters

Puffs & Bobbles

Spikes

Mesh, Filet, and Trellis

Crossed & Interlocking Stitches

Waves & Chevrons

Decorative Stitches

Ever wonder how to figure out what the multiples are for a stitch (i.e. “3 stitches plus 2 for the foundation chain)?  Well all you need to do is look in the stitch dictionary!  No need to worry about symbols, in the back there is a Symbols & Abbreviations Dictionary too!  This is a great addition to your crochet library!
