This is a great source book to learn about different kinds of stitches in knitting and crochet. Using this book makes it really easy to design your own hats, scarves, etc. using a stitch pattern that suits you. While it doesn't have instructions for whole projects, the stitches can be used for an existing pattern you have or for making up your own. I used to take this book out of the library all the time, and finally decided that I needed to own a copy for myself. There are great instructions for interpreting all the pattern short hand as well as basic clear instructions to get you started knitting or crocheting.

I'm very new to both knit and crochet.The pics are great and the directions for each stitch are wonderful and easy to understand. I have already had it out quite a bit to figure things out in the patterns I'm working on. 1 of my daughters is also learning and she loves to design,she has already started her project designs by looking thru this book. I know it will become a staple in everything we do.Great book easy to follow and understand!!!!!
