I ended up buying this book. Very good reference: clear writing and directions.

The strength of Dora Ohrenstein's book comes from the inclusion of instruction on tension and shaping which most crochet books lack. My technique has improved by following her advice and swatching the progressively intricate stitch patterns. Any interest in designing patterns will be encouraged by this book's advice.
