Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary: 125 Essential Stitches to Crochet in Three Ways is a brand new innovative crochet stitch dictionary by Dora Ohrenstein. I am going to show you what you can expect to see in this book.

Dora Ohrenstein is the author of this book as well as Top Down Crochet Sweaters, The Crocheter’s Skill-Building Workshop (one of my favorite crochet resources) and a few more. As well as being an author she is a designer and teacher. You can find out more about Dora and see her work on her website, The Crochet Insider

I have browsed many crochet stitch dictionaries and own quite a few of them and I have never seen one quite like Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary. There are 125 stitch patterns in this book and each one includes written and charted instructions on how to increase, decrease, and work evenly.

How awesome is that!! I have never seen a stitch dictionary with this much detail.

As a designer, I love this book, as it takes the guesswork out of trying to add shaping to things like garments and shawls. I already know I am going to use this over and over again.

That being said, you definitely don’t need to be a designer to use this book! Let’s say you want to crochet an asymmetrical scarf. Just pick a stitch, start with a small multiple and increase until its the size you want. Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary makes projects like these more attainable for the average crocheter.
