Reviewed by , Editor,

Every crocheter needs a good stitch guide. Beginners and experienced crocheters alike can always learn something new or brush up on a stitch they haven’t used in a while. For all skill levels, Melissa Leapman's Indispensable Stitch Collection for Crocheters: 200 Stitch Patterns in Words and Symbols is a must-have resource.

Sure, you can look up crochet stitch patterns online, but the benefit of having a tangible guide is that you can use it anytime, anywhere. Flip to the stitch you want to learn, and Leapman guides you through the stitch with easy-to-use instructions. Before you know it, you’ll have mastered a new stitch.

Leapman brings her expertise from many best-selling yarn books including Hot Knits, Cool Crochet and more. She creates original designs and draws from her experience in the yarn industry.

With 200 crochet stitch patterns in this guide, you’ll stay busy learning the ins and outs of every technique. Before you know it, no stitch will be too difficult or intimidating as you build on your experience. For each pattern, there are written and chart instructions, and color photos.

The book includes: Simple Solid Patterns, Shell and Fan Stitch Patterns, Openwork and Lace Patterns, Textured Patterns, Colorwork Patterns, and Edgings. Of these chapters, the colorwork stitches in particular may be of interest to more experienced crocheters.

There are many stitch guides out there, but Leapman’s experience paired with the readability of this book makes it a great addition to any crochet library.
