I haven't actually tried to work with this yet, but in reply to other reviews...

You can find videos demonstrating this method of starting a project, using modern terms. It's usually called "foundation single crochet".

The "Elmore stitches" are, I believe, what we call "extended stitches". There should be videos out there on these as well. Basically, once you've drawn up a loop, you work that one loop off the hook first, and then complete the stitch as usual. It gives a slightly taller stitch ... good for those of us who have trouble making row gauge. So for an "Elmore single", you would insert your hook in the work, draw up a loop, yarn over, draw through one loop on hook, yarn over, draw through both loops on hook. For the other "Elmore stitches", you yarn over first (however many times needed for height), draw up a loop, work off *one* loop, then work the stitch as normal.

Hope this helps.

I really wish I could give this book a knowledgeable star rating, but I find it absolutely impossible to understand what on earth the stitch instructions are trying to say. I have read and re-read and re-read over and over and over, and cannot understand how to make these new Elmore stitches. I think if I could just see a video on how to make the single Elmore, I could then decipher the halfs and doubles and triples. But try as I might, I can't find a video anywhere.

Very frustrating indeed.

I am not impressed. The author uses totally different terms for crochet and not enough instructions are given for the foundation row which is the basis for the rest of the projects.

I have had this book for over 20 years. I bought this when it first came out. The Baby Diamonds Afghan is my go to baby gift present. I have just about worn my copy out, flipping through the pages over and over again.
