“Crochet For Christmas” A Book Review + Giveaway!

November 20th, 2015

The holidays are here, and it’s time to start decorating! Crochet designer Salena Baca has just released a new book, Crochet for Christmas – which has some seriously cute and modern holiday designs. Just look at the cover, how amazing are those crochet cabled stockings!

If you can, I suggest you get your hands on a copy of this book because Salena and her designing contributors did a wonderful job with the patterns. They’re fun and modern and sure to put a smile on your face. The skill levels of the projects vary, so you’re sure to find something for beginners and more advanced crocheters as well.

Thanks to our friends at Stackpole Books, we’re bringing you a wonderful giveaway in which 2 winners have a chance to win a copy of this book along with a set of Bonbons® in the Nature colorway to make the reindeer mug cozy you see above. See details below for entering.

AND – as a lovely bonus from Salena herself, you can work up a Silver & Spice Crochet Hood made in Wool-Ease® Chunky, which is one of the patterns included in the book.
