The New York Times–bestselling author of Stitch ’n Bitch conquers crochet with forty original patterns in her sassy, sexy, signature style—fully illustrated.

Stitch ’n Bitch Crochet is chock-full of instruction, inspiration, and to-die-for designs, from lacy, sexy summer tops to chic, cozy sweaters, chunky, funky hats, and colorfully crafty afghans. And, as Debbie Stoller demonstrates with her easy-to-follow instructions, it all starts with the simple act of wrapping a hook around a strand of yarn.

Full of color photographs and instructional illustrations, Stitch ’n Bitch Crochet is the perfect primer on knitting’s sister craft—from tools and uses for the different gauges to all the cool yarns available. She also takes you through basic techniques and stitch patterns including the chain stitch, picot, flowers, filet crochet, changing yarns, and finishing. Then come forty fabulous projects for everyone from beginners to experienced crocheters: A pom-pom capelet, a retro clutch purse, an “Anarchy Irony Hat,” an “Orange You Glad Bag,” a “Doris Daymat,” a beach-ready bikini, animal iPod cozies, a kid’s sock monkey afghan, and so much more!

These are definitely not your grandma’s doilies.
