I admit it. I’m a sucker for good crochet reference books. No matter how many I have on my bookshelf, I can always find room for one more. I was thrilled when Interweave sent me a press review copy of the newly revised and updated The Crocheter’s Companion by Nancy Brown, published by Interweave/F+W.
The book is available in a hardback version with a spiral binding inside and as an ebook. I love having my ebooks stored on my iPad so I can take them with me wherever I go. However, if you don’t have a tablet, the hardback version is small enough to be the perfect size to tuck into most project bags.The Crocheter’s Companion is available on the Interweave website through the links below.
