The Step-by-Step Guide to 200 Crochet Stitches

The Step-by-Step Guide to 200 Crochet Stitches is a tutorial guide and stitch dictionary of different crochet stitches by Tracey Todhunter. Released 22nd Jan 2019 by Interweave, it's 192 pages and available in paperback format.

This is a good solid collection, arranged into logical chapters (basic stitches, fans & shells, clusters/puffs/popcorns, spike stitches, raised stitches, mesh/filet, lace/openwork, chevrons, texture, tunisian, colorwork, edgings, etc). There is a good table of contents with nicely sized color pictures of each stitch which include page numbers. There's a basic how-to guide for beginners, so crocheters of all skill levels will find accessible instructions. Each of the 200 stitches in the collection includes both written directions and 'Japanese' stitch diagrams (yay for both!!).

 Back in the dark ages (circa 1970something) I had a crochet stitch dictionary which I literally used until the pages were falling out and had to be taped back together. This one is better.

Five stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
