E-Book Review: Crochet Book One and Giveaway

It's a modest little title for a sweet new book. "Crochet Book One" This e-book, five crochet projects, designed by my friend, Rebecca Velasquez and produced for Quince & Co yarns.

Beginning with this showstopping shawl, the book contains a shawl, a hat, a keyhole scarf, a sweater and pair of fingerless mitts. The Queen Anne's Shawl is made of simple stitches beautifully photographed by Carrie Bostick Hoge. The Shawl is crocheted in 2 skeins of Sparrow yarn, which is a nicely priced Organic Linen that comes in 13 colors. 

Each pattern is written in the e-book with both written text and symbol diagrams. 

The Pauline Hat is both crocheted and knitted using just one skein of the nicely priced Chickadee yarn. It's an American Wool and comes in 41 colors!

The Marigold Sweater is sized from size 36" to size 52" bust and is crocheted in Finch. Another economical yarn!

Each pattern is available individually or they are available as a whole collection.

Leave a comment on This post by Monday, April 22 11:59pm EST with your NAME and an identifying location or Ravelry name and you will be entered to win a free pattern from the collection.  You can enter this giveaway also on other blog reviews. In May, among all the entries from all the blogs, a winner will be chosen to receive the whole collection by PDF.  (So you have Multiple chances to win!)

Thanks for letting us know about new book releases. This one has lovely designs and the timing is excellent.

I had been looking for a slouchy hat pattern that was not super slouchy and not too much of a beret. I love the shaping of the Pauline hat judging from your photographs.

The lacework on the shawl looks exquisite also. The yarn brand is unfamiliar to me so thank you for introducing me to new products as well.
