Blog Tour Giveaway: Big Hook Rag Crochet

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.

Big Hook Rag Crochet #giveaway on Underground Crafter. Enter through February 1, 2016 for your chance to win a copy courtesy of Lark Crafts. Open to US only.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:

Cozy Cat Cave by Erin Black

  1. Knowing Dedri’s pattern-writing skills, I know I want this book!
    And I’ve been thinking lately of making some rugs – both for myself and as gifts for family and others!

    Can’t wait to get this book!

  2. I love the cat cove, too. I have two cats and four dogs, who all like to burrow. If I were to win, that’s what I’d be making first, second…

  4. I would make the striped rug and then the Ombre Basket and most of the other patterns too! Perfect timing because today I finally finished tearing 12+ sheets into strips. Just need the patterns 🙂

  5. I would are the floor cushion for the dog. I think my dogs would love it. Maybe my friend would be able to do the things he wants if they had a cushion to lay on he always quits what he is doing and picks them up.

  6. I would definitely try the balloon rug first. I would be making it for my bathroom, so instead of balloons, I would applique seahorses and fishes on mine. Thanks for the giveaway
