Design Your Own Crochet Projects review & giveaway from Jessie At HomePin

Oh my goodness, guys, I got the greatest book to review the other day! Design Your Own Crochet Projects by Sara Delaney is just amazing!

Ashmere Beanie Design Your Own Crochet ProjectsPin

Sara’s book starts as any other, with an introduction about herself and the book, and right away you know this is no ordinary crochet book. Sara explains that she has made calculation sheets for each type of design (scarf, cowl, hat, mitts, mittens, gloves, and socks), and all you have to do is plug in swatch info and measurements to determine how to make your projects. Not only are these super handy charts in the book, but you can find them ready-to-calculate for you online HERE. How cool is that?!

As a designer, I am very excited to try out her calculation tool. I’ve already bookmarked it. You can bet that Sara has explained everything you need to use this tool successfully (such as proper swatching and measuring), so that you will have a wonderful finished project. This book is a must have for crochet designers and aspiring crochet designers everywhere.

In addition to all the design tools, Sara has included patterns in each category with samples of the filled in charts so you can see how everything comes together, and so those not quite ready to jump into designing can still have some finished projects. She uses a variety of stitch patterns, all which are shown again at the end of the book, so you can really see how different stitch patterns work within the charts.

  1. I peeked at the book on AmazonSmile and would love to learn all the how-to’s shared. I am 72 years young and love to crochet, but usually follow other people’s patterns.
