200 Crochet Stitches by Sarah Hazell, softback published by Search Press. ISBN 978-1-84448-963-3, price 12.99 available from www.searchpress.com
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.
