The Crochet Workbook by James Walters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm thrilled to see that the Crochet Workbook is back! I actually own the original book, but am really excited to see that this book is back in print.
You can look at this book on two levels: as a basic how to book (both for beginner crocheters and beginner free formers), but also as inspiration for your own freeform. Walters and Cosh are famous in the crochet world for teaching us how to crochet using nature as your guide, and it's never been more true today then it was 25 years ago. This book is much more about crochet as art form, then about crochet as stitchery.
If you want to break into the world of crochet design, this book is a great starting point for you, because Walters and Cosh teach you how to make three dimensional shapes in crochet, using various stitches.
