Favorite Crochet books.
I just purchased 200 crocheted squares and Couture Crochet Workshop books. Any other books worth checking out?
Thank you

Love love The Crochet Bible, Encyclopedia of Crochet and one that is cross discipline for lack of a better word, The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting & Crochet Stitches. As far as pattern books gosh anything goes.. Cool Crochet is quite cool as well as the notebook full of loose patterns I've collected from everywhere

I like the Harmony Guides crochet stitch books. They tell you how to do each stitch written out row by row and also in chart form, and it's really helped me learn to read crochet charts. They are these:

I really like the book 'Happy Hookers'. Simply written with good pictures. Nice patterns too.
