These two crochet stitch compendiums were first published as The Harmony Guide to Crochet Stitches and The Harmony Guide to 100s More Crochet Stitches. Stitch patterns are an excellent source of inspiration for crocheters wishing to put together their own individual designs, and these collections are among the best this reviewer has seen. 300 Crochet Stitches includes lace patterns, motifs, filet, clusters, shells, bobbles, and looped stitches, while 220 Crochet Stitches covers all-over patterns, edgings and trimmings, motifs, and Irish-style crochet. Full-color illustrations are superb, and stitch patterns include both diagrammed and written instructions. If only the publisher had matched the good-quality paper and printing with a strong binding; as with all the "Harmony Guides," these titles will require rebinding after a few circulations. Recommended for public libraries not owning the earlier edition.

I have the very first Harmony book of crochet stitches, which is decades old... the one put out before they started numbering them and telling you how many stitches they contain. I thought this book was a sequel to that original one, but it is not.
It appears that they simply tore apart the original book and made it into two seperate books. This one, vol. 7, contains very few stitches that are not in the original. For instance, in the first section "All over Patterns" there are only 18 stitches that are solid fabrics suitable for clothing (versus openwork, filet, edges or motif patterns) and only two of those are new to this book. If you're new to crochet and want open work stitches this book would be great. But if you've been around awhile or want stitches that make solid fabrics suitable for clothing or warm afghans, skip this book.
Introduction - gives basic crochet instructions (how to hold the hook, making crochet fabric, changing colors, etc.)
All-Over Patterns (76 patterns) - 76 lovely stitches that you'll be proud to display
Filet Charts (26 patterns) - all fine-looking crochet pieces!
Motifs (35 patterns) - all beautiful medallions plus instructions on how to join
Irish Style Crochet (26 patterns) - shows beautiful, lacy works
Edgings and trimmings (35 patterns) - easy to make, but produces lovely effects in the end
Afghan (Tunisian) Crochet (31 patterns) - shows unusual stitches
Do the math and you'll have more than 220 stitches there!
