Design Your Own Crochet Projects is a book of patterns - but so much more! This book actually teaches the formulas and theories behind scarves, cowls, mitts, hats, and socks. So you can create custom projects like these:
Inside the spiral bound book (love that) there is a deep dive on yarn, and swatching - which is really the key to designing! Lots of numbers are provided, but you need to swatch to plan your project. And Sara takes you through every step of the process - planning the yarn, the pattern, and then doing the math!
Inside Design Your Own Crochet Projects you will find tons of information I haven't seen spelled out anywhere else. Things designer spend years figuring out on their own! Which makes Design Your Own Crochet Projects a fantastic resource for any crocheter.
But it doesn't stop at the book! And this is just amazing to me - they've put all the calculators online! So you don't have to make copies (or gasp, write in the book). Just CLICK HERE for all the Online Crochet Calculators - free for all to use!
And this is what the calculators look like. Don't try to type here, it's just a screenshot! The calculators can be used on their own of course, but it's in combination with the book that they really reach their full potential.
There is a separate calculator for each type of project - hats, mitts, scarves, etc. It's an absolutely phenomenal resource for every crocheter - and designer too!
Sara Delaney has put together an unprecedented book in Design Your Own Crochet Projects, and you can purchase the book on Amazon US, Amazon CA, Amazon UK, Amazon DE, and very possibly at your local booksellers. Be sure to also check out Sara's Ravelry page, and add some of these patterns to your own Ravelry Queue and Favorites!
And now, let's give one copy away, courtesy of Storey Publishing!
