Threadwinder.info - Crochet Publications

Due to sheer numbers, it is virtually impossible to list all crochet publications in the English language. However, despite inevitable ommissions and overlaps, I have categorized them and made a start at providing bibliographical information about them, much of which is generally not available from easily acquired sources.

PRE-1925 CROCHET PATTERN BOOKS:

Here is a list of early crochet books derived from Esther Potter's book, my collection and research.

SINCE 1925 CROCHET PATTERN BOOKS:

Not populated with titles at this time. I may decide to break this catagory down further...

CROCHET SERIALS:

Currently just a list of publishers (mostly yarn companies, pattern companies, and designers)--- more to come...

CROCHET STITCH DICTIONARIES/GUIDES:

I recently started collecting these, so this list is just a start...

CROCHET HISTORY BOOKS:

There are only a handful of books containing significant text on crochet history, but there are many books with short histories or histories on specific genres of crochet.

CROCHET TOOLS BOOKS:

There are very few books with depictions of many crochet tools, however many books on sewing tools depict small numbers of these items. For information on actual crochet tools see my tools webpage.

CROCHET PERIODICALS:

Will be listed here...

CROCHET EPHEMERA, ADVERTISING, POSTCARDS, PHOTOGRAPHS, & STEREOVIEWS:

A few examples to be listed here.
