Details

Debbie does crochet! Debbie Stoller, the 'knitting superstar,' has been leading an entire movement of hip young knitters with Stitch ín Bitch and its follow-up, Stitch 'n Bitch Nation. 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 Bitch 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 ín Bitch 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.
