Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Stoller's Stitch 'N Bitch and Stitch 'N Bitch Nation have become icons of the knitting craze: every hip young needleworker has at least one of them next to the yarn stash. Now, she uses the same approach that made her knitting books so successful in this entrée to sexed-up hookwork that takes pains to show crocheting isn't for grandma anymore. Stoller provides everything short of the hook and yarn a crafter will need to learn how to crochet. From a history of the craft to mind-bogglingly complete instructions and dozens of charted and explained patterns (the majority of which are for women's clothing and accessories-there are no afghans here), it's all presented in Stoller's bright, witty style and accompanied by cheery color photographs. Beginners will like the easy construction of the "Stripes (and Stripes) Forever Scarf," and intermediate crocheters will enjoy whipping up a "Cupcake," a purple sweater confection. Experienced crocheters have patterns here too, such as the astonishing lace "Go For Baroque" sweater. This latest entry into the Stitch 'N Bitch canon is sure to be another bestseller.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book like many to teach myself how to crochet. It is written with humour and cleverness. The graphics are clear and very helpful for beginners. The patterns are also fun and moder. However, as much interesting this book is in comparison to old granny-like crochet learning techniques, the patterns are often wrong... The patterns counts are not as they should be do be carefull if you are a very beginner and wondering why you can't get your project finished (or started in some cases)it might just be because, what is indicated is actually impossible to make!

Most notably the "Sweat Peas" chale and the bed fellows have errors in them.

I still would recommend the book, but you better be a clever learner or have an expert crocheter in your entourage!!

generally become jaded with them over the years, especially with the last couple of years. Many so-called new pattern books often have designs which have been recycled, or are very simplistic, or just plain ugly.
However, I was more than pleasantly surprised when I bought this book. It has a refreshing style of writing, making it an easy read. It has fun bits of information, including bios on the designers. It has multiple, great pictures of the patterns being modelled, as well as basic instructions for newbies to the craft.
I feel that there is plenty here to inspire a novice, and an experienced "hooker", and the designs are very cute, and trendy - not kitschy, but quite chic, and I feel very enthused and inspired looking at them. It is not all scarves, ponchos, and baby afghans.
As a person who has been crocheting for many years, I am very happy with this book and highly recommend it to others. Too bad there wasn't more hours in the day, and money in my bank account.

Since when I began to crochet, I learned from a friend, I never knew all the proper terminology that many of the crochet patterns use. I love this book for a number of reasons. Firstly, the book shows you in detail how to do all the different crochet stiches. Secondly, there is a chart in the book that lists all the abbrevations used in patterns and then tells you what each abbrevation means. And lastly, there are so many different patterns in the book. Some patterns I really like, others not so much, but I think the patterns would appeal to a large number of people!

I'm the beginner in crochet. After taking two crochet classes, I bought this book as a reference, which was highly recommended by my instructor. Now, I can read the pattern and alternate the original design on my own. It's fun reading this book, and I highly recommend this book for those who is new to crochet just like me! :)

My mom taught me how to crochet when I was little. I have since mostly surpassed her in interest so now I'm left with books/patterns and websites to teach me new things. I still have trouble reading patterns and learn best visually. This book makes patterns so easy! I have never been able to successfully make anything 3D until this book! Would definitely recommend it!

I purchased this book about ten years ago and the pages are now falling apart. It is time to purchase a new copy. I wish it came in hardcover for the sake of durability. Among all my crochet books, this is the one I turn to the most. When I want to make something as a gift there is something in here for virtually everyone. If I have odd bits of yarn left over from other projects, this book helps me make use of the stray balls. The Short N Sweet shrug is a great easy to do pattern that can be modified to cardigan length and sleeves can be lengthened or shortened as desired. In fact, although the patterns are by different designers, I have found that elements of one design can be added to another and a whole new look created. I admit, I was a somewhat experienced crocheter when I bought this book but by no means perfect. I would say this book increased my skill because the easy to follow patterns gave me confidence. There are few patterns I did not try and many I have made over and over. Before long, I was using the stitches learned here to create some of my own patterns. When a book teaches you to be creative, it totally earns five stars. I wish Debbie would come out with a new edition. I prefer crochet over knitting and these designs are modern enough to wear every day, whether you are a toddler, teen or mature adult. Highly recommended for beginners and more experienced crocheters who want a pattern that is easy to work on while watching a favorite show.

Initially borrowed this book from our library and loved it. I found it a good reference for stitches as she explains them very well and I found the illustrations very good. So I bought it for myself to always have as a reference.
