Crochet is the technique of making a looped fabric from a continuous length of yarn, using a single hook. The word "crochet" itself derives from the French "croc," meaning a hook (or crook); an old scottish name for crochet is "shepherd's knitting." It is one of the most portable and flexible of crafts, requiring only a hook and some yarn. Once you have mastered the basic techniques, you can create a fascinating variety of effects.

The Crochet Stitch Bible contains over 200 stitches explained in full. Each is accompanied by a photograph sample, row-by-row instructions and easy-to-follow symbol charts.
There are additional chanters on basic techniques and materials, as well as a stitch selector and a how-to-use sections that provide clear guidance for beginners and experts alike.

The author is a freelance needlecraft designer whose crochet designs have appeared in many magazines and been published by prestigious yarn companies.
