Get your hands on color theory information that is specifically directed to crochet enthusiasts — plus a whole bunch of lovely patterns for crocheting motifs including squares, triangles, hexagons, octagons, flowers and others. An added bonus: The book also includes patterns for some finished projects you can make using these motif patterns, plus international symbol crochet charts, plus some ideas for different color variations you can try.


This is one of the most-used crochet books in my entire library. I LOVE IT! And if you’re interested in either color theory or crocheting motifs, I think you will really enjoy it too.

Crochet Loom Blooms by Haafner Linssen, published by Interweave. The paperback edition of this book comes with a starter loom, and it includes patterns for 30 flowers plus 5 finished projects.
