In 2012 I was becoming reacquainted with my crochet hook, I had just started blogging and I avidly followed other crochet blogs for inspiration and information and I simply crocheted and crocheted.I loved all the beautiful blankets I saw in ‘blogland’ I had tried a few and had many wips on the go….
My preference however has been for 3d crochet, amigurumi in particular. This goes a long way in explaining my book choices. I am basing this top 3 on the books I use the most and return to again and again…..
So this is the one that is never far from my crochet basket. As you can see in the picture it is slightly grubby: it has been to the beach, has taken train journeys and is often to be found on the the floor of my car, once I even left it in the garden overnight! I is a wonderful reference book, I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who enjoys this type of crochet….

I would just like to mention another book, although I have not attempted anything from it yet, it is in french and I’m still practicing my diagram skills…
But it is beautiful and as such inspiring….
