Below are top 5 favorite crochet books for the absolute beginner.
I Can’t Believe I’m Crocheting by Leisure Arts
This was the book I used to teach myself to crochet when I was 5. It has great step-by-step photos for both right-handed & left-handed crocheters. This is probably my favorite book for the absolute beginner.
With 320 pages, this more of a crochet encyclopedia. I love pretty much all instructional books by DK, and this one is one of my many favorites.

This is great for crocheters of all levels, it starts with the basic stitches, and goes all the way through advanced finishing techniques.
