Have you ever designed your own project or modified an
existing pattern to reflect your own sense of style? With the right stitch
pattern you can create something intriguing in the simple rectangle of an
afghan or a ipad cozy.
|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:
- 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.
