I've found applied microsoft .net framework programming by Jeff Richter 
very helpful in helping me learn C#. Though not for beginners, it helped 
me understand the inner working of the CLR.

C# and the .Net Platform by Troelsen is also a good choice.

For design patterns, you should definitely get the book on Design 
Patterns by the Big Four (Gamma et al). You can also get the Application 
Design Patterns provided by Microsoft in their MSDN website.
