This blog post is all about the ultimate list for must have crochet books.

I'm so excited to share with you my ultimate crochet book list! Whether you're a beginner or an experienced crocheter, there are books for you on this list. 

I am a self-taught crocheter, so books were my everything when I first started. When I became a crochet designer, I relied on books for inspiration or to learn new skills and techniques. 

This ultimate list of crochet books includes something for everyone! Home decor (my favorite obviously!), crochet stitches, amigurumi, granny squares, dolls, even historic crochet, and so much more!

So settle in and get your pens ready...you're going to want to make a note of these!
