The foundation of crochet is learning how to crochet stitches, starting with the basics and then moving up to more advanced techniques. There are endless options for learning stitches available to today's crocheters, but few live up to the test of time like Harmony Guide: Basic Crochet Stitches.

The Harmony Guides have been longstanding references and sources of inspiration for handcrafters for more than thirty years, offering clear, concise instructions and photographs for stitches. This guide goes beyond words to help you truly learn how to crochet basic stitches. Great care was taken in creating this guide which is why it's still one of the most comprehensive and trusted resources available today. Each page shows the most important details so that whether you've been crocheting for a day or decades, you'll be successful.

“I really like the physical format of this book - it is substantial but not unwieldy, the chart illustrations are clear, the photos are sharp, and directions are generally one-page, so I can keep it on the table beside me for reference without having to turn pages.... [There are] plenty [of stitches] to appeal to beginners, advanced beginners and intermediate crocheters. It is a VERY good basic book and always the first one I look through for inspiration and instruction....” - Sparkalicious Review,, Web. 5 Sept. 2012.

With 250 stitch options, the possibilities are practically endless! All swatches are worked in contemporary yarns, clearly photographed, and accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions. Basic crochet techniques are reviewed, plus tips and tricks are featured throughout. You'll find everything from the basics, such as double crochet, to more advanced stitches, such as lace and linked stitches.

This simple crochet stitch guide will also help you learn how to customize your other crochet patterns with extra details to make them your own. Use the single cluster crochet stitch as a great foundation pattern for a textured scarf or a trinity stitch to add warmth to an afghan design. Or glam up a shawl with a striking hexagon stitch or a wavy shell stitch.

Whether you're a designer seeking new ideas or simply a crochet enthusiast, Harmony Guide: Basic Crochet Stitches is sure to become your essential reference guide and source for creativity. We're committed to providing the very best to crocheters, and hope you enjoy this basic crochet stitch guide as much as we do.
