Whether you’re a newbie crocheter like me or are already accomplished with the hook, you’ll find a wide range of projects in these books: fresh, modern wearables and accessories; sweet, zakka-inspired, simple-to-stitch projects; amigurume people you can create in any shape or size; and lovely, floral-inspired motifs for any season. 

How can you enter for a chance to win this essential collection of crochet books? Leave a comment on this blog post by 9 p.m. EST on Thursday, December 5. Any comment will do, but why don’t you tell us about any holiday crochet projects you have in the works?
