Little Crochet Giveaway!

Edited to add on April 6, 2011: The giveaway contest is now closed. No further entries are being accepted. Thanks to everyone who entered.

Hi Knitters,
I have a wonderful new book to share with you today. But first I have a couple of announcements I have to quickly make:

Tomorrow, April 5th, I am having a Tweet Chat on my Twitter account from 1pm to 2pm Central. You can write in questions or just read along. It will be a question/answer type thing in a chatty sort of way. If you don't follow me on Twitter already click here for the link.

Second on the list, I just received notice that the Woolie Ewe is carrying complete kits to knit up Spud, Chloë, the barn and the fence from the Spud & Chloë at the Farm book and at a great discounted price! The shop is also hosting a knitalong for the book starting Apr. 11th.



Okay, with that business being taken care of, let's get down to some Little Crochet business. Linda Permann is the author of this exciting new baby to toddler crochet book. I have to say that I am genuinely impressed with the crochet projects being offered in Little Crochet. The booties on the cover are completely enticing enough but the book includes everything from blankets, pillows, toys, a bib, leg warmers, boys and girls garments, a sweet mobile, a bunting, a rug, and a few adorable embellishments for add-ons to store-bought or knit or crochet clothes.




I am a big fan! Let me take you through a little bit of the book. I marked my favorite patterns to share and just know that I tend to favor little girls' garments but there are plenty of little boy options as well.
The book starts out with an in-depth informational section about crochet tools, yarn, pattern information, taking baby measurements (I adore that photo above, just look at those thighs!), gauge, skill levels, stitch abbreviations and how to read crochet charts. Little Crochet packs in a huge amount of information, including a very clear technique section at the back of the book. If you haven't crocheted before this book is a great resource for solid information AND excellent patterns. It's a winner.
Linda has a tasteful eye when it comes to her garment design. I can't get over some of her little girl garments. They are incredibly fresh and springy. Kind of just what I needed to see right now. The garments look light, not heavy like some crochet can look. Linda has an innovative touch that I think is crucial to making crochet new and modern and appealing. Linda also steals my heart with her embellishments. She makes everything so sweet.
The dress above is one of my favorites in the book. Isn't that the cutest little dress? The colors are perfection. Congratulations on this one, Linda. I would love to make this dress someday.
I think the little three button lace cardigan can't be beat. It's the perfect little throw on for any little girl in any sort of climate or season. Layering is the best for little kids because someone always seems to be hot or cold at any given moment. The cardigan fills a need for sure.
Linda offers several embellishments that could be applied to ready-made clothes or added onto other knit pieces or crochet pieces. There is also a rocket in addition to the flowers above that is super boyish and cute.
Adorable!!! Linda also has made very thoughtful yarn choices throughout the book. Everything works well and you can see the effort that went into the styling and photography. There are multiple, clear photos of each project including detail photos that are very helpful.
This one is fairytale-like in the best way. What little girl wouldn't love to wear this adorable cape and hood? What an awesome design. Linda shows her cleverness, expertise and genuine know-how on every page of the book. She takes the reader right along through the steps to create each project. I am not an advanced crocheter but I am convinced I really could create these projects with Linda's book by my side.
Of course, I have to share Linda's fantastic giraffe! It's just so good.


Be sure to check out Linda's book trailer for Little Crochet. She made this on her own and I can't imagine the amount of work that went into creating this video. It's super cute and sweet.

I would love to see more people crocheting out there, even if it's simply learning the basics. It's these little projects that lend themselves to crochet and learning how to crochet so perfectly. Linda is on a mission to get people crocheting and seeing how beautiful, fast and functional crochet can be. I agree completely.

I learned to crochet before I learned to knit. I love to give a crotcheted (sp?) blanket to all the new babies in my life.

I have been wanting to learn to crochet for a while now and the booties on the cover of this book just pushed me over the edge. I must learn immediately!

Monica de Moss said...

Ooo - I was just at the big book store on a weekend trip to the city and I didn't see that book in the crafts section! I would love to win a copy as I have been scouring the knitting sites and web for dress/skirt/clothing patterns to make for my 2 grandaughters. We still have a couple of feet of snow, so I have another month of winter knit/crochet time ahead of me. :-)

I fully enjoyed the video! I learned to crochet in November, made a ton of stuff. A month or so ago I learned to knit, and have enjoyed learning. I know I'll still crochet some items, and knit other items. So glad I know how to do both!

I think this book would really help me create wonderful little things for my next grandchild (due in the fall - yay!)as I can do the basic crochet stitch but haven't gone any farther into the craft. Still having fun with your hats. Thanks!

I am very excited about Linda's new book. I just wish I had some cutie-pie little girls to crochet cutie-pie garments for. It still looks totally awesome. Thanks!

Susan, thanks for the commentary on Linda's book. I have quite a few friends who have had babies recently and can't wait to try some of the projects. The fairy tale cape looks so darling! It was great to see your comments on the projects.

Susan, thanks for the blog post on Linda's new book. I have several friends who have had babies over the past year and can't wait to try the fairy tale cape and the giraffe patterns! I appreciate your comments on Linda's patterns and styling - it's encouraging to hear what others think since I've recently picked up crochet again after a very long hiatus.

I have been telling myself I need to learn how to crochet. Maybe this is the book I need to "cut my teeth on". Looks awesome.

I learned to crochet when I was very young. I didn't learn to knit until I was in my twenties. I always go back to crochet. I love crochet for baby blankets. Thank you for the giveaway! HollyBerries on Rav.

One Grandma knit, the other one crocheted. I've picked knitting back up, but my fingers are itching to crochet as well. Too many proejcts!

Lindsay said...

I learned to crochet 25 years ago. I was taught back loop only and hated the look of crochet. Last summer I retaught myself crochet and fell in love again. My favorite weights to use are fingering, dk and size 20 mercerized cotton. I just had a little girl in Jan and have loved making her booties and bonnets.

My ravelry name is BrooklyneChaos.
