Giveaways: Quick & Simple Crochet Booklets

F+W Media was kind enough to provide two contributor copies of each Quick & Simple pattern booklet that I had a pattern published in, so I’m hosting giveaways for the extra copies!

I usually share a book review with my giveaways, but I didn’t dare review these booklets because, ya know, it would be hard to be unbiased about my own pattern ;).
