I haven’t been doing very much of it lately (no need for scarves in Phoenix), but I enjoy crocheting. Here are five great crochet books. If you’re an expert or have never crocheted before, you’ll like at least one of these.

Awesome Crochet Books
While my grandmother originally taught me to crochet, I forgot much of what she taught me, so this book is really what got me into the craft. They have great directions and projects for learning almost every stitch. I still keep it as a reference, and I’ve loved everything I’ve made from the book so far.
This is a beautiful book. Even non-crocheters have enjoyed browsing through it (I keep it as a coffee table book). There are so many projects in here that I’m looking forward to completing. It is also more or less an encyclopedia for everything crochet, so that’s awesome.
Tasty Crochet by Rose Langlitz
This book has a ton of really cute foods you can make, from pop-tarts to ice cream cones to bacon. I made a bunch of them for my nephews’ kitchen set. The instructions are easy to follow. And did mention the food turns out really cute?
100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet by Leslie Stanfield
It’s fun to make these flowers because they’re pretty quick and turn out quite beautiful. You can use these as appliques or in other applications. (There are 60 crochet patterns and 40 knit.)
This is also a great crochet reference book. It goes through how to make many different 3-D shapes, and how to use that to create any amigurumi of your choice. It also goes through many different options like how to do fur/hair, how to do eyes, etc.
Crochet Books I Want to Read
While not always practical, everything Twinkie Chan makes is adorable. This book focuses on crocheted foods to use around your house!
