Last month I wrote a list of 25 lists for crocheters. Each of the 25 things on the list was another list of 25 things. For example, the first item on the list is to make a list of 25 crochet books. The idea is to brainstorm many, many different things that can give you inspiration as a crocheter. One of the things that I want to do this year on the blog is to explore each of those 25 lists for myself.

So here is my list of 25 crochet books that I hope will inspire you:

  1. To tell you the truth I would love to have ALL of the crochet books! Each one probably has at least 1 thing to make it worth having. I love the ones I currently have.
