Crochet Stitch Dictionaries
- Crochet Stitch Dictionary by Sarah Hazell — This is the ultimate stitch dictionary for any crochet enthusiast who appreciates having symbol crochet charts, lots of color pictures, and written instructions — all in the same book. I find the photography in this book really inspiring, and I refer to this book often when I am crocheting and designing.
This is also an excellent book for beginners; it starts at the beginning, with clear, helpful explanations of each of the basic stitches and many of the foundational crochet techniques you need to get started.
- Triple Play Pattern Stitches — I adore this beautiful, slim volume of colorful crochet stitch patterns. The author, Darla Sims, has shown you three different variations of each stitch, crocheted in three different colorways. I find this book to be a real time-saver when I’m trying to visualize how various stitches would look in different colors. Instead of crocheting bunches of different swatches, I can just refer to this book, pick a variation, and get started on my project idea.
