I’m so excited to be part of the blog tour (and share a giveaway) for a new book by Dedri Uys!
This post contains affiliate links.
I had the chance to get to know Dedri from Look At What I Made a little better last year when I interviewed her for National Crochet Month. She’s a talented crochet designer and blogger, and also a caring person.
Oh, and did I mention busy?
Dedri is raising three young sons with her husband and working four days a week as hospital radiotherapist. Somehow, she also finds time to create stunning crochet patterns and write books.
Her latest book is Big Hook Rag Crochet: 25 Quick-Stitch Designs to Make Using Leftover Fabric from Lark Crafts.
This book is a collaboration with 15 crochet designers working with strips of leftover fabric to make fast and eco-friendly designs. You can see all of the book’s designs here on the Ravelry source page.
I have two favorites:
If you’re new to crocheting with fabric strips, there are some great tutorials by Dedri in the back of the book that will help you create your own fabric yarn and teach you basic stitches and crochet techniques.
So, are you ready to win your own copy of Big Hook Rag Crochet? Lark Crafts is providing one lucky U.S. winner with a copy. Enter by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Monday, February 1, 2016 using the Rafflecopter widget below. One winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!
