Runner Up: Best Crochet Books for Beginner
As a beginner, you won’t want to miss out on The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet. As opposed to a step-by-step guide, this crochet book is in a reference book format, more like an encyclopedia than a guide book. If you don’t have a grasp on the techniques, don’t feel like you’ll be missing out, there are tons of large color photos showing you how to perform different crochet techniques. The book illustrates plenty of examples to keep you on the right track and gives you projects to try. The authors provide stitch samples with charts showing you how to make the perfect end product. Even intermediate crocheters admit that they find a lot of inspiration in this book and often refer back to it.
The only thing you may find difficult with this book, is that the descriptions aren’t quite as clear and abundant as in the step-by-step books. If you’re someone who learns best visually, you can take a lot of crochet techniques and ideas away from this book.
