Triple Play Pattern Stitches from Leisure Arts

Whenever I need a new stitch guide, I always find something awesome at Leisure Arts. As you know from past posts, I have found guides from them for everything from bobbles to clusters, and pineapples to Tunisian. During my most recent browse, I found a stitch guide from Darla Sims that is too awesome. 

Triple Play Patterns Stitches gives me a whole new way to look at stitches. On the surface, it is a pattern book with 30 fun patterns and even advice on how to plan an afghan for your own design. But when you look deeper, you will see these pattern stitches look totally unique when done in two or three shades. Essentially, you now have 90 patterns to play with and a new to look at all stitch patterns.

 As a visual learner, I really love that they have taken pictures of each pattern using one, two, and three colors so I can get a great idea of the color dynamics and know exactly where I want to go with each stitch, depending on my project. I found it fascinating to see how some of the patterns really popped and turned into something so extremely different with a simple color change. 

The stitch patterns are easy to follow and you are given the starting information in a way that allows you to plan a starting chain for any size project. Have you designed your own crochet patterns with the help of a stitch guide? 

Take some time to browse Leisure Arts' great selection and make sure you also connect with Leisure Arts on Facebook and Twitter so that you never miss a special or new pattern! Also, if you sign up for their knitting or crochet newsletters, you get a free pattern on Fridays!

Disclosure: I may receive products in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.
