A nice selection of a variety of crochet stitches - from very basic to complex stitch patterns. The instructions are clear, with a photograph, and diagram, of each stitch pattern. The first few pages of the book are a basic how-to crochet stitches, and a glossary of the abbreviations used in this book. Please note: This book is literally a collection of crochet stitches. There are no patterns for making specific garments, or accessories.

Wonderful stitch reference book. Just wish the pics were bigger; however, I have swatched many of the patterns and have found it very useful. Great book to look thru when searching for just the right pattern and like that it is in color.

The Harmony volumes are British publications, and as such, use some terminology not familiar to US knitters. All terms, however, are define and illustrated. This 1988 Collins & Brown imprint is the same text as the 1990 "Harmony Guide to Knitting Stitches, Volume 3" published by Lyric Books.

The following categories of stitches are included in this volume: Knit & Purl textures; Slip Stich Mosaics; Slip Stitch patterns; Cross stitch patterns; Cross Stitch panels; Cable patterns; Cable panels; Cable and Lace patterns.

Each pattern has a color photo and line by line instructions; the slip stitch patterns also have an accompanying chart. Some of the colored patterns are shown in 2 and 3 color variations.
