I love crochet style books with lots of stitch patterns to help me design projects. Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia by Robyn Chachula is an excellent addition to a crocheter's library.

Each of the patterns is laid out in both International crochet diagram symbols and written patterns in American terminology with a very clear color photo that shows the finished item with great stitch definition. So if you're more comfortable with written patterns, but want to learn how to follow crochet diagr

(Full disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Wiley to review on my blog.)

I was very excited when I received my review copy of Crochet Stitches VISUAL Encyclopedia: 300 Stitch Patterns, Edgings, and More by Robyn Chachula from Wiley. Robyn is a structural engineer by training and is known for using stitch symbols with her designs. I'm a stitch guide junkie (I have reviews of over 20 stitch guides on my blog and Amazon), and had really high expectations of this Encyclopedia. I full
Great book! There are a few stitches that are great for beginners, but this books seems to be geared toward those who already know basic stitches.
The lace stitches are nice, there are many that I haven't seen in other books, nor online.
Their is a granny square/shape section, which is good, but not too extensive. There is also a few pages that talk about how to connect the square, which I loved.
There is also a section on borders, but it isn't a huge selection.

This is my go-to book whenever I am designing crochet patterns. I can't imagine my crochet library without this book.
Got some mixed opinions when I asked about this on Ravelry. People seemed to prefer other stitch dictionaries better and said that this one was too motif-heavy, but I loved it!

I am not a super-experienced crocheter, but there was a lot here to inspire me. I thought the encyclopedia was pretty comprehensive. Yes, there is a large section on motifs, but there are fairly large sections on different stitch types as well. I think my favorite section was the one on colorwork. After looking through it,

If I didn't already have most of these patterns, I would consider buying the book. Nice variety and presentation of swatches. However, I don't like her method of charting. Maybe because I'm used to reading Japanese charts, I find her placement of stitches off. Some of them I couldn't figure out where the stitches went, and had to revert to the written instructions to figure out what she wanted.
From what I have seen of this book its really fabulous! It covers a lot of great stitches. I think this is a book every crocheter needs in their bookshelf!

Really fabulous book. Tried a few new stitches. Definitely will get years of use from this. I can see using it more and more as my skill level increases.
