Book Review & Giveaway - Design your own Crochet Projects by Sara Delaney

Sara has broken it down into designing for scarves, cowls, hats, fingerless mittens, mittens, gloves and socks.  So lots to get you started.  There is a stitch dictionary and a metric conversion chart all included.  Did I mention the book is spiral bound?  Which is great, as it lays flat for you. She has included some of her original patterns along with the formulas she used to create them.  I particularly like the scarf and hat patterns.  The hitchcock scarf is one that I have ear marked for the winter months, I can but hope we will get a summer, as I type this !

If you would like to win a copy of the book, just follow the blog and let me know in the comments section, what was the first crochet item you every designed and made.  I will pick a winner next week and publish on the blog.  Its open internationally too !

Till next time !

    I learnt lots of new stitches as I added rows to an item that was going to be a poncho but which ended up too bright so I turned it into a cosy infinity scarf! Would love to know how to design projects properly 😊

    I really haven’t done any serious designing – just a few simple baby hats and headbands but I would really like to design a crescent shaped shawl.
