Hi friends! This is a rarity on my blog as I don’t often do giveaways, but I couldn’t resist! (You’ll find the entry form at the bottom of this blog post.)Today I wanted to share a book with you that I am absolutely in love with! It’s called Crochet Kaleidoscope: Shifting Shapes and Shades Across 100 Motifs and it’s full of fun motif patterns that can be worked up fairly quickly. I tend to use a lot of neutral color tones for my wearable patterns, but when it comes to fun blankets, pillows and kitchen goods, I am all about these gorgeous colors! This book is a stunner as it’s filled with various motifs that use color in amazing ways. The book’s author, Sandra Eng, also gives you ideas on how to make these motifs into blankets, pillows and more. It’s a great resource to learn how to use various colors together in your projects. I had the pleasure of actually crocheting with Sandra when she made a visit to my town a couple of years ago!
There are quite a few motifs that I’d like to try from the book. I think it would be a lot of fun to make a blanket for my daughter with a variety of these patterns.
When one of my friends was over the other day for coffee, we were talking about how it actually makes a gorgeous coffee table book!
Above: Isn’t that blanket a stunner? Talk about an heirloom piece.
I met Sandra through Instagram, and you’ve got to follow her if you haven’t already. You’ll find all sorts of crochet inspiration on her feed. Her handle is @mobiusgirl .
If you love color and the idea of making small pieces that can be put together to make something beautiful, I think you will swoon over this book. 🙂 Thank you to FW Media and Sandra for supplying me a copy which I am giving to one of you! You can find this book on Amazon HERE as well!
