Can anyone recommend a good crochet stitch dictionary. I've searched the boards and have seen a few mentioned but I'm wondering what people think of different ones and which ones people like the most.

I own The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs by Linda Schapper. The graphics are awesome, they have a picture table of contents, which I like Smiley I haven't used any other ones.

I'd recommend going to amazon.com and looking up the names of several books you think you'd like.  Then go to the library and get any they have and order the rest thru inter-library loan.  Then you'll have a couple weeks to look over the differences and won't waste your money buying one you won't like.

I think it depends on whether or not you are a visual learner. I have to see the stitch as it is worked. A simple diagram or explanation isn't enough for me.

I agree with chutzpaw. Hit amazon up to see what's out there and get a better feel for what you want. Smiley
