If you fancy creating your own stunning crochet designs, or simply livening up a pattern with a bit of extra texture or lace, then this is the book for you! Beginning with basic stitches and moving on to shells, puffs, spike stitches, filet, chevrons, colourwork and much more, there's everything you could possible need to get going. Each stitch is clearly explained, both written out and charted, with full colour swatches and step-by-step photographs, so even the most complex patterns are easy to understand.* Inside Crochet, Issue 112 *
This is a book filled with over 200 crochet stitches. It is complete with steps to each stitch and is accompanied with a visual image.
Simply explained, the stitches included are lace, textured and even 3D stitches.
My favourite has to be the Tunisian stitches, which I haven't yet tried, but each of the included stitches are brilliantly showcased.
They can be used for making blankets, edging and the Crochet Skills section at the back of the book ensures that everyone will know the basic of crochet before they start.
The abbreviations are in US and UK styles, and the explanations are simple to understand.
What I noticed about this book was the colours. Each stitch is beautiful, and 200 More Crochet Stitches is a book that inspires.
This is a must have addition to your craft room.-- Tracy Shephard * Postcard Reviews *
'200 More Crochet Stitches really is packed full of crochet stitches. With great photography and explanations, perfect for designing your own projects. I will certainly keep it to hand when designing new blanket patterns.'
