200 Crochet Stitches by Sarah Hazell is the definitive stitch bible for all lovers of crochet. This super book contains a veritable wealth of stitch patterns and how-to techniques. All of the stitches are accompanied by clear photographs, step-by-step instructions, charts, and examples of the stitches along with suggestions for how to use the stitches in garments and accessories etc. It is altogether a very useful and informative resource and quite possibly the only crochet stitch book that you will ever need.
"Crochet has become so popular again and I can see great demand for this exciting new book of 200 stitches. This book is useful for all abilities. It shows the basics of crochet so that you can attempt and master any of the stitches. This is a wonderful directory of stitches for anyone interested in crochet. I like the layout of the book, just wish it laid flat for easier use. You can see clearly from the cover what you are getting, how-to close ups, great stitches in colour and charts. There isn't a stitch I don't like, favourites include Alternate, Spider, Sedge, Uneven Berry, Granule, anything involving scallops, shells, waves, chevrons, clusters, raised stitches, loops, lace or fans, Iris, Starburst and Solomon's knot. Without doubt my favourite crochet stitch directory. Superb, colourful, easy to use. I am finally picking up my crochet hook."
"Wow what a book it's amazing soooo happy clear patterns and instructions and the photography is really clear X"
"If you've never bought a crochet stitch book then this book
is a fantastic place to start.
Why not use the stitches to create your own projects.
Crochet is so versatile you'll be amazed
how quickly you'll be designing your own things.
There are a lot of stitch books out there but this one is so different.
It offers so many different types, designs, use of other materials
that other books don't.
I was really amazed by the diversity of the stitches.
They are also explained in both written
and chart format so either way you should be able
to copy the designs.
Different colours, techniques & items such as beads
are used to bring so amazing different styles.
Some would be brilliant for afghans (blankets)
and some would be even better for garments.
At the start of the book is all the information you will need
to recreate the designs within the book;
Equipment & Materials
Essential Crochet Skills
The instructions are clear and easy to understand.
This really is a book you'll use for years to come.
I often take my stitch books down whenever I feel
like designing something.
They give you so much inspiration.
If you are new to crochet it's also a fantastic way
to increase your skills.
You can make a block of each and join them together
to make a beautiful blanket (afghan).
A fantastic addition to any library!
I received the book to review.
However all opinions expressed are my own.
No monies were exchanged."
