Crochet Books

A Listmania! list by K. Kasabian (Silicon Valley, CA)
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Hi there. I'm a longtime crocheter with decidedly limited skills (I stick to simple projects), but an eye for good design. Here are some books I've either purchased, used or read that I can recommend."
The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches
1.  The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches by Editors of Reader's Digest
The list author says:
  "This book is absolutely essential for afghan crocheters. Why? It's a list of stitches and accompanying photos AND instructions for crocheting to your desired width. Very helpful, as most afghan patterns specify how wide the blanket should be. Brilliant!"
Used & New from: $10.00

Simple Crochet
2.  Simple Crochet by Erika Knight
The list author says:
  "Beautiful projects, great color schemes, a nice section on crocheting household items. Fairly good instruction pages, but I've seen better. Uses some non-traditional materials: fabric, twine. Sample items include: square and circular pillows, small containers, afghans, throw rugs, bottle covers, slippers and baskets. Minus points for a lack of photos showing each project in its entirety."
$16.01   Used & New from: $3.36

Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker
3.  Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller
The list author says:
  "Some fun modern designs here. Good instructions, a variety of projects. Appropriate for the beginning crocheter with a hip, well-rounded variety of projects. Goes beyond blankets, scarves and washcloths."
$11.99   Used & New from: $1.01

Leisure Arts Birthstone Afghans
4.  Leisure Arts Birthstone Afghans by LEISURE ARTS
The list author says:
  "Good straightfoward book on afghans. The color palette is dated, but with some imagination, crocheters can breathe new life into these designs. A good range of simple-difficult stitches. Worth the money."
$25.00   Used & New from: $3.98

Candy Blankies: Cuddly Crochet for Babies & Toddlers
5.  Candy Blankies: Cuddly Crochet for Babies & Toddlers by Candi Jensen
The list author says:
  "By far my favorite book of baby blankets, this includes modern and classic patterns for boys and girls. Projects range from simple to experienced and are real showpieces. Some innovative techniques, such as weaving in colors, making animals and flowers for applying on a finished blanket, pom-poms, and scalloped edging."
