Click here for larger image.

Edited by Connie Ellison, this book is a collection of 81 different stitch patterns and 20 edging patterns. There are no specific gauges, no materials lists and no size requirements. Instead, each pattern specifies the number of chains required for each repeat of the stitch design making all of the stitches and edgings adaptable to a variety of yarn and needle sizes.

With exquisite photography in full color, this book is an "essential" for any crocheter's library. In addition, it is a fabulous tool for the beginner who wants to hone her or his skills. With many unique pattern stitches not found in other pattern books, this is a guide you will refer to often.

After trying out the stitch patterns and creating squares, they can then be put to great use by following the instructions that are given for two lovely afghans. This book is available at for $19.95.
