    I am self taught and learned to read patterns through trial and error. I am now being more adventurous and making blankets and simple garments with only a template and then using a pattern stitch from another project. This will give me more ideas to expand on! Thank you

    There are so many great stitches that I would love to learn. I am a self taught crocheter of about 6 months and know the basic stitches. I am also left handed so that complicated my learning from anyone, I had to resort to the little pamplets at walmart. I would love to learn the afghan stitch, basket weave, reverse stitch crocheting, edging, and trimming just to name a few.

    What a great book! The Tunisian Stitch has always been a challenge for me. My sample stitches are always too tight and the piece curls up. I would like to learn to use more than one color and make purses and wooden handled totes. If I do not win I will probably by the book at Amazon or one of the local craft stores. Nice Present for me! Thanks Rachel. Lil from Baltimore

  13. Angela D (kissingtoast) says:

    I am new to crochet. 3 months now and growing strong. This book would be a great help to me, since I only know a handful of stitches so far. If I see a pattern I want to try I have to wait to get to a computer to look up a tutorial on the stitch. It would be nice to have this book handy so that I can learn on the go. This book would be a great teacher for someone new to crochet like me!

    As far as stitches I would really love to learn:

    Peacock stitches
    Solomon’s Knot
    Harlequin Stitch

  14. Heather says:

    Fans & Shells, Textured Stitches

  15. Becky says:

    I would like to learn the Tunisian procedure. I have read about it, but I have not tried it yet.

  16. Viv says:

    I would like to learn the various special stitches described in the book. The first one though is the Tunisian Stitch as I believe it produces a dense piece. Would be very good for winter crocheting. Thanks for giving us a chance to win a great book! More power Rachel!

  17. D'Ann Gayler says:

    I would like to learn Tunisian. I tried it about 30 years ago, but haven’t tried again in all this time.

  18. Gail Hogsten says:

    I want the book to give to two college girls that I met today. One of them had posted on Freecycle that she wanted yarn, any amount, any type. So today I met with her and her college room-mate to give them a bag of yarn. Some was scrap yarn, some was skeins of yarn. They both were thrilled to get the yarn and very excited about it.

    Neither of them are experienced crocheters. They know how to chain, sc, and dc. Outside of those few stitches they are lost. I know they would totally love having this book to learn more stitches and more about crocheting.

    So for them, I hope that I win the book. I found more skeins of yarn to give them after returning home, and to be able to give them the book and yarn would be a wonderful gift to them, and to me.

  21. Eydeel says:

    Beleive it or not, my biggest challenge has always been granny squares. I have also wanted to learn Broomstick Lace. I know there are many things I can do with this stich if only I could understand how to do it. I am self-taught and have learned through trial and error, but I am very good at learning patterns and can follow them well. I know this book will help me learn many patterns I currently do not know, or enhance those that I have already learned.

  38. Sabrina Hartman says:

    The stitches that I would most like to learn about from the book would be the tunisian stitches. I have tried to learn these kinds of stitches many times on the internet and I have found these stitches to be kind of difficult for me. I think having them in a book may be just what I need.

  46. Antoinette in KC says:

    I have been interested in learning more about the Tunisian Crochet. I love the tightness of the stitch it seems that it would be a very sturdy garment once finished. I have own the Tunisian needle for a while but still have been a little intimidated about actually starting a project.

  47. Marybeth says:

I also would love to learn the patterns for the items featured on the inside flyleafs and TOC pages. Thanks for the opportunity!

  48. Rita says:

    I would like to try the broomstick lace, and I am still trying to learn Tunisian stitches. Since I have pretty much taught myself from the beginning, this book would be awesome to own. Honestly though, there are so many stitches and techniques in this book, it would keep me literally ” in stitches” to own this book. LOL

  49. chitra says:

    I’ve been crocheting for a little over a year now. I usually just do small projects coz I love to learn and experiment with new stitches and crochet techniques. Looking through the book, I got stuck admiring the photos on the first couple of pages πŸ˜› Topping my stiches to learn list is the tunisian crochet stitches and the filet.

  50. Lisa says:

    This book has been on my Amazon wish list for a while. I’ve been crocheting for a couple of years now and am addicted! I’ve been wanting a stitch guide that has good pictures of each stitch. I often see a stitch but don’t know what it is. I’ve heard from other crocheters that this really is the best! There are so many textured and puffy stiches I want to learn, as well as the lacy stitches that my Grandmother used to do!
