    Very good info about "Making Fabric." Good info about how to determine increases and decreases after drawing the shape you want your fabric to be. Then, the rest of the book is an encyclopedia of hundreds of possible crochet fabrics. Each stitch includes both written-out instructions and visual diagrams. A great reference overall! There is an amazing versatility to crochet.Some interesting stitches I liked:-Shallow single crochet. (Work as basic single crochet, but from 2nd row insert hook low into body of each st, below 3 horiz loops and betw 2 vert threads.)-Acrobatic stitch.-Catherine wheels (4 variations)-Hexagon stitch.- really cool and complicated looking, like little volcanoes erupting from a textured field!-Track stitch.-Aligned puff stitch.-Astrakhan stitch - 3d looking-Aligned railing stitch - looks to me like little human figures raising their arms.-Woven Overlay.-Chained Overlay.

    A very good stitch guide book. The only reason not to buy it is I think I can find most of the info online.

    I really enjoy this book and refer to it often. The layout is great, and it starts for beginners listing and showing all the basic stitches. It also explains how to read a diagram which I find invaluable. This book is helping me take my crocheting to the next level.

    Excellent resource, though some of the photos of textured fabrics could have been done more effectively, perhaps as illustrations.

    This is a fantastic crochet book. This series in fact is very well done. It doesn't give you projects to follow, but for those crocheters that like to create their own, this is a fantastic resource.

    The Harmony Guide had not only great ideas for new crochet options, but gave good ideas re: finishing techniques.
