The good things in life might be free, but sometimes a small investment in an amazing pattern is worth every penny!
These crochet books are available (mostly) through amazon.com and can be reviewed by clicking on the photos. For transparency, I have read and used some of the books and will note as such in my comments. Some are on my “wish list” and the commentary provided is a round up from other reviewers on various blogs, networking with other fiber artists, or comments provided on the amazon website.
Let’s start off with something just for fun. This series is easy to read with a good mystery in every yarn (ha ha, get it?) I read “Dead Men Don’t Crochet” and every time I thought I had the solution figured out, there was another turn in the story. These are a bargain at $7.99 for the kindle edition and I’m happy to see the option for a 10 book set.
From my wish list…These books are essential for learning doll-making techniques. From daily use to collector items, these dolls are just adorable. I’ve completed a few arigurumi animals, but would like to try dolls this year in preparation for holiday gifts.
The granny square was one of the first crochet motifs that I mastered. I love the revival of this tried-and-true design into new views and color combinations! I have many granny square designs – but this book offers 500! Wow! Has a 4.4 out of 5.0 stars rating on amazon.com but is still on my wish list for now.
