Today I’m sharing a quick little project from a lovely crochet e-book I was asked to review…
Its a wee crochet flower brooch, made using 3 ply cotton and the pattern can be found in an e-book by Natasja King called Crochet Pretty
This is just one of 10 lovely accessory patterns in the book. I’m thinking the little drawstring bag from the cover will be next on my list because I have some cotton left over from the tangerine cardigan Ive just finished for Maia (more about that soon) and I’m sure she needs a little bag to go with it! If I hurry I might be able to get it finished in time for her birthday on Thursday! I also really love the earrings. To see all 10 patterns from the book over on Ravelry, just click here.The really neat thing about Crochet Pretty is that its interactive, so there are links to lots of helpful extra information and it even includes some instructional videos and an interactive quiz! There are also clear step by step instructions, with beautiful photography. I love that because its an e-book its perfect for using on my ipad.
If you want to buy the Crochet Pretty iBook, you have to hop on over to
this page on iTunes. If you already have iBooks installed on your iPad, just go ahead and click on the link. Here’s a little video that gives you a sneak peek inside the book and some of the features:
Natasja has done a wonderful job putting this collection of patterns together, and I really recommend you check it out.
And without sounding too much like an infomercial – But wait there’s more!
Natasja has kindly agreed to give a copy of the e-book to one lucky Green Dragonfly reader. So if you have an ipad (iphone or mac) and would like to enter please leave a comment below. Ill draw the lucky winner next Monday, December 22, 2105. And if you are quick, that should give you plenty of time to whip up a few extra Christmas presents in time for the big day!
