Although some of the projects aren't to my taste, this book has some of the best instructions for learning to crochet.

Okay, so I didn't read it cover to cover, but I have been through most of the how-to section and I found it very easy to learn the stitches with this book. It reads almost as if someone is in the room with you, including comments about troublesome spots and different ways of doing stitches. Haven't tried a pattern yet, but they seem relatively easy to follow. My only complaint--there are quite a few sweaters/shirts/accessories that aren't really my style. But there are some great scarf and hat patterns, along with a few blankets and other random accessories. (crocheted bikini, anyone?) ( )

Great, clear instructions for a variety of stitches, pattern reading, and techniques, combined with a set of fun patterns to use them. A good beginner guide or reference manual for the more advanced who want to try some new techniques. ( )

This book is a book I recommend to almost anyone who's learning to crochet or wants to have a better understanding of the craft. It breaks down how to crochet in a clear and humorous way. There are great patterns in the book also. ( )

It was my first book. There is lots of information -- great to learn from with soooooo many patterns to choose from. I did find a few of the instructions hard to understand as a beginner but looking up the how to on youtube helped plenty. I found the Crochet Answer Book was far more helpful --- easier to understand with a lot less content to teach the same thing. Since it is a learning book, more advanced crochet techniques would have been a real nice addition. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761139850, Paperback)

Debbie does crochet! Debbie Stoller, the “knitting superstar,” has been leading an entire movement of hip young knitters with her New York Times bestseller Stitch ’n Bitch and its follow-up, Stitch ’n Bitch Nation, together with over 521,000 copies in print. But guess what? For every one knitter in the world there are three crocheters—which translates into millions of hip, crafty, 18- to 35-year-olds ready to be happy hookers with Stitch ’n Bitch attitude, sexiness, ingenuity, and cool.

Written in the author’s cheeky chick style, this heavily illustrated book—featuring four-color photographs and instructional illustrations throughout—is chock-full of instruction, inspiration, and to-die-for designs, from a Fishnet Skullcap to a lacy evening wrap. For knitters and new crafters exploring the hook comes the primer: the advantages of crochet and the ways in which knitters (and nonknitters) benefit by learning this sister craft; a discussion of tools; all the cool yarns available, and what the different gauges mean; plus basic techniques and stitch patterns—including the chain stitch, picot, flowers, filet crochet, changing yarns, and finishing. Then come 40 fabulous, funky projects—the kind that make Stitch ’n Bitch rule—for crocheters: Pom Pom Capelet, Retro Clutch Purse, Anarchy Irony Hat, Ms. Pac Man Change Purses, Doris Daymat, Va-Va-Va Voom Bikini, Animal I-Pod Cozies, Kid’s Sock Monkey Poncho.

No, these aren’t your grandma’s doilies.
