1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Recommendations on Crochet Stitch Reference Books on: September 13, 2010 03:02:32 PM
Lately I've been looking to increase my stitch pattern collection by getting some good stitch pattern reference books. I purchased Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume 4: Crochet, and it's pretty good, but it doesn't seem very complete. For example, it has a "petite popcorn" stitch, but lacks other common ones bobble stitch, puff stitch, and spike stitch. Does anyone have any suggestions for other good crochet reference books and stitch dictionaries? I'd like one that is fairly complete and focuses on basic stitch patterns to advanced stitch patterns. I don't want actual patterns for items, but just explanations of how to make the different stitches. I live in Canada, so books that can be easily found in Canada or the USA would be best. Thanks!

Also, I'd like to say hi to everyone since I'm new! Smiley I searched to see if any other topics had been started on this subject and couldn't see any. If there is, sorry for bringing it up again.
