Product Details

Product Description

From Library Journal

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous reference Jan. 22 2004
By A Customer
This book is one of the best crochet books I have seen, it is even much better than alot of the books teaching you how to crochet. It has diagrams and instuctions on how to do all the stitches plus other techniques, and the rest of the book is filled with all the different combinations of stitches to make different pattern and motifs that can be used in patterns. It will help the pattern designer as well as the beginner, as it is easy to see how standard patterns can be modified using the book. An excellent reference, and I recommend readers get "220 more crochet stitches" to go with it because they are both invaluable

5.0 out of 5 stars Crochet lace July 26 2003
I wanted to learn how to make crochet lace and tried working through a dozen or so different crochet books before coming across this one. The other books helped me master the simplest stitches, but I wasn't able to follow the descriptions to achieve my desire of making crochet lace. I'm pretty persistant, but I had been close to giving up and trying something else when I found this book.

The Harmony Guides V6 and V7 start from the most basic stitch and working up, including stitches for all over patterns, and lace. Between the verbal descriptions, photographs, drawings, and diagrams I think everyone should find a descriptive mode that suits their way of thinking and learning.
I'm not very interested in the all over patterns but it has plenty of crochet lace to keep me excited about what I will be able to do as I work my way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive for what it promises Jan. 9 2003
I've had both of the Harmony Guide books for over a year now and hopefully I will get lots of crochet time so that one day I can put them to good use. Although these books are impressive for what they promise I must caution you that I do not beleive that they replace all other crochet books or that they are a must have if you crochet. I also do not beleive that they are a good beginner's book because I don't see a beginner turning any of the stitches into a project unless they intend to make a lot of dishcloths. I know you're probably thinking why not an afghan, but for a beginner that would require too much planning and guage fiddling to make each of the sampler squares the same size and if they're going to use the same pattern stitch for an entire afghan then why would they need to know 300 pattern stitches and 220 more?
If you are avid on designing your own projects or are often looking for ways to modify projects however, then you will find these books to be a fabulous reference. The pictures are great, the instructions are clearly written and on top of each pattern stitch there is a guide specifying what the pattern stitch multiple is. You will find pattern stitches for texture, mixing color, for filet designs, motifs, edgings etc. These books really are impressive for the purpose they were written for. They are rich in inspiration and technique and you will most definately enjoy leafing through them and drooling over the pattern stitch pics.
If however, you are simply looking for ideas to add texture or creatively mix color and don't want to invest in a book that will show you tons of stitches, most of which you feel you will never get around to using, then invest in a pattern book with projects instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you crochet, you need this one. March 29 2002
Wow! This is the best crochet book I have ever bought, and I have a lot of them. I design my own patterns for baby blankets and this book is a treasure trove of ideas for patterns. I've had the book just a few days and have made samples of many of the different stitches to see how they work. There are step-by-step instructions for each and a very clear, easy to read diagram. I found stitches and stitch combinations I have not seen anywhere else. Any of you who design your own patterns, or want to try, this book is a must. If you're not into designing and just want a nice textured overall stitch for an afghan or for afghan squares, it's in here. There is also a very nice section on motifs - sqaure, round, triangle, pentagram, hexagon, star, floral.
I can put away all my other crochet books now. This one will go everywhere with me. Fellow crocheters -- do yourselves a favor and get this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration abounds Dec 28 2001
By A Customer
I love just leafing through this book and looking at all the color pictures of patterns. I have used this book to make laces and edgings. As a beginning crocheter, I find the directions easy to follow, and I get good results. I would recommend this as a classic reference for anyone who wishes to expand past published patterns to designing their own projects. If you look at this book, you'll hardly be able to stop yourself from coming up with great ideas for projects of your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!! Oct. 22 2001
I haven't been able to put this book down; it almost replaces every other crochet book I have. It teaches everything. It has a large variety of stitches. I carry the darned thing around with me to read and ponder like you would a novel. There will never be enough time in this lifetime to do complete projects from everything I see in this book, but I'm gonna try! I LOVE IT!!!
