Patty's Little Encyclopedia of Stitches

This page contains some stitches you can use to crochet your own design: shawls, potholders, towel topper, afghans, garments, all that items beautiful also if crocheted with a single stitch. For the sake of simplicity, I subdivided the stitches in "solid" and "open", first one being more suitable with yarns and firm items (like potholder or afghans), second ones devoted to laced items like shawls and garments. I included also a "multicolor" stitch section.
