    ITEM#: 3658491

    Debbie does crochet! Debbie Stoller, the "knitting superstar," has been leading an entire movement of hip young knitters with her New York Times bestseller Stitch 'n B*tch and its follow-up, Stitch 'n B*tch Nation, together with over 521,000 copies in print. But guess what, for every one knitter in the world there are three crocheters which translates into millions of hip, crafty, 18-to-35-year-olds ready to be happy hookers with Stitch 'n B*tch attitude, sexiness, ingenuity, and cool.

    Written in the author's cheeky chick style, this heavily illustrated book?featuring four-color photographs and instructional illustrations throughout is chock-full of instruction, inspiration, and to-die-for designs, from a Fishnet Skullcap to a lacy evening wrap. For knitters and new crafters exploring the hook comes the primer: the advantages of crochet and the ways in which knitters (and nonknitters) benefit by learning this sister craft; a discussion of tools; all the cool yarns available, and what the different gauges mean; plus basic techniques and stitch patterns including the chain stitch, picot, flowers, filet crochet, changing yarns, and finishing. Then come 40 fabulous, funky projects the kind that make Stitch 'n B*tch rule for crocheters: Pom Pom Capelet, Retro Clutch Purse, Anarchy Irony Hat, Ms. Pac Man Change Purses, Doris Daymat, Va-Va-Va Voom Bikini, Animal I-Pod Cozies, Kid's Sock Monkey Poncho.

    No, these aren't your grandma's doilies.

      I love this book. The patterns are fresh and easy to follow. I've been crocheting for a while, so I skipped the first part of the book (the "how-to"). But the patterns make it worth it. Included are trendy items such as handbags, hats and pins. I can't wait to try the crocheted bikini.

      This is a crochet book with some side stories. The projects are fun to look at and to be inspired by. It is almost like having a crochet club near by.

    • Good reference book....
      Verified Purchase

      I am a novice Knitter and Crocheter. I had the other for knitting and decided since I liked the way it was presented and the added cute projects that I would go ahead and get this book. Definitely a good value as a reference and price wise. Very helpful and easy to read. A must to keep on hand for reference.

    • Easy usefull patterns

      This is one of those books that no matter who you are, you will find something in here. I like the book because it does show crochet in a very different light and it's one that shouldn't be missed.
