Crochetville Blog Tour March 18, 2016

Good Morning Everyone,

Its been quite a while since I did a blog post. I was kind of busy, working on 4 books over the past year. As I write this, I am in the process of ordering yarn for my next book. When Amy, from Crochetville, asked me to participate in the Blog Tour honoring crochet, during the month of March, I said that I would love to.


The Four new books are CUSTOMIZE YOUR CROCHET, 10 SQUARES 30 BLANKETS, 10 SQUARES 30 BAGS, and CUSTOMIZE YOUR KNITTING.

I have lots of special things for you today, a free pattern and several great prizes. All you have to do is leave a comment, and leave your email address, so that I can get in touch with the winners. The winners will be chosen at random.


The free pattern is one that I usually sell, but today it will be free for anyone who wants it. I tried to make it so that you could download it, but could not figure it out, so you will have to copy and paste. In addition to the free pattern, there will be five books and one Free Form Crochet DVD for 6 different winners, and one grand prize, which all entries will be eligible for.







AND THE GRAND PRIZE


This is a sweater from CUSTOMIZE YOUR CROCHET, it is a medium size, chest measures 37/38, everyone who leaves a comment and their email address will be eligible to win.

The Free Pattern is:



Thanks for visiting today, enjoy the rest of the tour.

Margaret

I just bought and devoured Margaret's Granny Square book and I'm excited to try rectangular granny squares and to try granny squares using fabric to make rugs. I'd love to win either the 30 Bags or 30 Blankets books since both look like great fun.

Cathy Broder said...

Margaret, It is so very nice to connect with you; I live in Freehold, NY not too far from you and feel that we are kindred spirits. I am relatively new to crochet,I take your books out of the library so enjoying the challenge of learning with each step. I love freeforming and I think my next step is to try a simple garment for myself. Cathy
