In Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary, designer Dora Ohrenstein does what no crochet author has done before: She offers detailed instructions for how to create 125 stitch patterns, plus she explains how to increase and decrease each stitch pattern in three different ways-without shaping, with shaping at the edges, and with internal shaping. This hefty collection, ranging from lace and filigree to shells and textured stitches, is loaded with beautifully photographed swatches of each pattern, plus charted and text instructions. A focus on the ins and outs of shaping makes working stitch patterns far more accessible and allows the creative crocheter to make many items without a pattern. Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary will become an invaluable go-to resource that’s sure to inspire legions of crocheters to use stitch patterns in new and exciting ways.
