Smooth Wave Stitch Pattern

Sometimes making a project your own can be as simple as substituting a stitch pattern. There are hundreds of gorgeous and innovative stitch patterns, and a good stitch dictionary (or three) is an absolute necessity for any crocheter.

Mirror Stitch Pattern

I would recommend Crochet Stitch Dictionary: 200 Essential Stitches with Step-by-Step Photos by Sarah Hazell. This collection of crochet patterns includes:

  • Basic Stitches
  • Fans & Shells
  • Bobbles & Clusters
  • Spike stitches
  • Post stitches
  • Mesh & Filet
  • Cable stitches
  • Tunisian stitches

Each pattern is complete with written instructions, photographs of finished swatches, and detailed stitch diagrams. I love the bright yarns and color photographs. This is especially important for the colorwork designs.

Wave and Chevron Pattern

You will find the perfect stitch pattern for every project, from solid fabrics to lace and from colorwork designs to 3-D textures. I can’t wait to begin playing with the Smooth Wave, Mirror, and Wave and Chevron patterns. As you can tell, I’m in a bit of a colorwork kick. But this dictionary has something for everyone, including beaded, post stitch, and surface crochet patterns.
