I have enjoyed a lot of books since I joined OpenLibrary last fall, even browsed some vintage craft and knitting books, but it never occurred to me to search for crochet books until a few days ago. Turns out there are currently over two hundred available for borrowing; that's less than the number of knitting or sewing books, but I'd still say it's a good resource.

Of the several I've looked through, the crochet book I like best is Crazy Crocheting, a book for children that emphasizes creativity. Not everyone would like the late '70s vibe, but I like that it encourages children (or adults) to play around and create their own designs right from the start. I'm glad there's a variety of stuff like this available in digital form now.

OpenLibrary is free to join. You can borrow up to five books at a time, each for two weeks at a time. I usually read books in my web browser, but they are also available as PDFs or epubs.
