Big Hook Rag Crochet Review and Giveaway!

Happy 2016 everyone!
I have a great GIVEAWAY to kick off the New Year!


I have LOVED crocheting with FABRIC and a large hook for many years now. I used to teach a Fabric Crochet class nationally that included projects, as well as techniques for crocheting with fabric.

I am so happy to be able to present a review of Dedri's Uys' newest crochet book,
BIG HOOK RAG CROCHET, published by Lark Crafts.



Make sure you read all the way to the bottom to learn how to enter to win a copy of this great crochet book!


Big Hook Rag Crochet is great for the beginner crocheter or anyone who wants to learn the techniques of crocheting from and creating your own fabric 'yarn'.



From the Publisher: "Learn to crochet with strips of fabric made from your unwanted garments or leftover stash and transform them into stylish accessories for you and your home". That means you can crochet with a large hook from recycled fabrics! You can also use ANY new fabric that you think might be a good fit for your project!


This book, edited by Dedri Uys, has big, colorful photographs and 25 "inspiring patterns for homewares and accessories, using recycled fabric". The projects in this book have been contributed by several different crochet designers!



I love the fact that this book has a wonderful TECHNIQUES section that includes everything that you need to know to crochet with fabric and a large hook. Categories in this section include, Using the Proper Hook and Getting Gauge, Cutting and Join Yarn (fabric), Techniques for creating yarn (fabric) and excellent photos to go along with the instructions. It also has great Beginning Crochet directions with photographs, that even a beginner to the art of crochet will be able to easily understand.


You can follow the Blog Tour that is going on for this new crochet book. Many of the blog posts have giveaways going on as well!
