My Must-Have Crochet BooksAll at Half Price!

For the next two days, Interweave has buckets of books on sale, making this a fine time to fill your shelf with crochet pattern books and design reference books.

I cruised through the list of sale books and highlighted half a dozen books I love and have on my shelf. This was not an easy task—if I could, I would include 20 books.

All of the books shown here are half off their original price. Plus all the crochet pattern books are the exact same size (8.75 inches square), so they snug up together neatly on the bookshelf. OK, yeah, so I'm a book dork — but I love that!
