Whew. That was a lot of exclamation points. I couldn't help it. I'm really excited.
From the description on Amazon.com:
In this fun new book from the Crochet Dynamite line, Jaime will show you step-by-step how to make gorgeous argyle crochet projects using variegated yarn! While this isn't a quick-and-easy technique, it's beginner friendly since there are only two stitches that are used to create the pattern: chain stitch and single crochet. Even very experienced crochet artists will find this technique challenging and fun because it requires a meticulous eye for detail, and playing with so many colors without having to weave in ends is just plain fun!
In this book you will find:
Step by step instructions on how to Argyle Crochet with variegated yarn
10 fun and fabulous projects to make with your Argyle Crochet pieces, including:
- The Tassel Hat
- Argyle Beanie
- The Camo-gyle Scarf
- Mad For Plaid Tote
- Wee Bonnie Blanket
- This One's Mine Laptop Cover
And list of yarns that will, and won't work with this technique, and instructions on how to tell if your favorite variegated yarn will work.
This book is not for the faint of heart, but if you've got patience and determination you'll soon be impressing your friends and family with your fantastic Argyle Crochet!
Woo hoo!!! I know I said it before, but I am SO excited. Because it's not just FREE Crochet Dynamite: Argyle Crochet day... It's my one year Blogeversary!! Crochet Dynamite is officially one year old!!! But that's not why I'm excited. It's because I have a surprise for you. In celebration of my Blogeversary I've decided to make it FREE CROCHET DYNAMITE BOOKS DAY!!! All of my books are available for FREE today (and the crowd goes wild!!)!!
But wait, there's more! While I was working on this book I bought a lot of variegated yarn. Like more yarn than one person should own. Like WAY too much yarn. Which means that I have a whole lot of awesome variegated yarn that would be just perfect to use with all of the projects in my new book, Crochet Dynamite: Argyle Crochet, but it's taking up WAY too much space in my art studio (otherwise known as my dining room). So, I'm going to bundle it up into 3 giveaway prizes!
If you'd like to enter to win one of the prizes, please download Crochet Dynamite: Argyle Crochet (and any of the other books if you don't already have them), and then come back and leave me a comment with your contact information! It's that easy! Much like the books, the giveaway contest ends at midnight PST tonight, so make sure you enter!!! One comment per person, please!!
I'll use Random.org to pick a winner tomorrow morning.
Thank you all for your love and support! I have loved nearly every minute of this last year, and I feel blessed that you are all on this journey with me. And if you wanted to leave a review of Crochet Dynamite: Argyle Crochet sometime this week it sure wouldn't hurt my feelings... ;D
