I’ve been talking with friend, client, and fellow Craftsy instructor Beth Graham lately about crochet stitch dictionaries. These books are any designer’s best friends for ideas and inspiration. If you like to make your own designs, or think you might want to, try adding one to your crochet library. Beth asked what crochet stitch dictionaries I use and love, so I’m listing them here:
