All sizes of double-ended hooks and weights of yarn can be used to create the creative patterns featured in this extensive crochet resource. With only two skeins of yarn, beginner- to intermediate-level crocheters can produce a unique two-sided fabric unlike anything that can be achieved with a regular crochet hook or knitting needles. With 101 stitches and two projects to get crafters creating, this reference is also an ideal starting point for new projects.

This book, dealing with an advanced technique is not aimed at the beginner crocheter although a very basic technique guide is given. It gives examples of 101 stitches and two patterns that can be created with a double-ended crochet hook. These stitches and patterns are unique to this method of crocheting. If you understand the basics of crochet, then this book is a good way to expand your techniques. Before I saw this, I had never heard of this technique. I am intrigued by the fabulous possibilities of this technique. Spiral-binding would have made the book lie flat and be easier to use. The designs have been submitted by different designers, some are more interesting than others.-Karenplatt.co.uk This is a book on how to do 101 different stitches using double-ended hooks. There are a number of different ones on the market but you will have to decide for yourself which to choose; they are not introduced in here. What you get with this book is exactly what it says on the cover; 101 stitches on the same number of pages, each with a colored example and full instructions on how to do it. There are two projects at the back, one for a classic winter hat and the other for a hooded baby blanket, but it is up to you to locate suitable patterns and apply your new knowledge of the stitches to them. At the beginning there are two pages of staged general instructions on how to work with one type of hook (the type sold by publisher Annie's Attic called a Crochet on the Double hook). The stitches themselves are all shown worked in two colors, and the type and weight of yarn and size of hook used to make the sample are listed. If you are not already a crochet fan then this is going to be rather advanced, but if you are and fancy having a go with a double-ended hook then you can learn a lot of stitches with the minimum amount of fuss in these pages.-Myshelf.com
