Knitting and crochet books—2016

This month, I've put together a list of the knitting and crochet books published this year.

I've categorized them in several ways, to make it easier to find books on a specific topic (say Nordic knitting or crocheted cardigans). And Mr YarnSub has turned it into an online tool.

I hope you find it useful. Christmas isn't far off now, so maybe it'll give you some inspiration!

Lace pattern from October's article

I had some requests for details of the lace pattern that I used in last month's article. It's called 'snow flurry', and I've written out the instructions and a chart.
