A Time to Crochet + Giveaway

This week I received my copy of  Classic Elite's brand new booklet, A Time to Crochet.

I have really been looking forward to this!  Classic Elite asked me to crochet "my favorite sweater" using any technique and yarn I would like.  Man, was that fun!  I immediately wanted to do motifs.  I love them, and am constantly in love with the lace they create.  It still seems magical to me the lace they form when connected all together. As for style, I was going for something comfortable.  A sweater you can toss on with any outfit.  I left the side seams open, to make the sweater very relaxed in fit.  The yarn is Fresco, a wonderful wool/ alpaca/ angora blend. Incredibly soft and fun to crochet.

Alessandria is fully diagrammed.  There are stitch diagrams for each motif and joining in the sweater.  The other patterns in the book are pretty great.  You need to go check them out on Ravelry when you have a minute.  (Quite a number of the patterns are diagrammed as well.)

A Time to Crochet you can get as an eBook, a physical book, or you can purchase the patterns one at a time.  Cool part is if you buy the printed booklet, you get a code to the eBook version for free.

Giveaway time!  Classic Elite generously gave me one copy of the book to giveaway and I have one hank of Fresco I can give you as well.   As always, to enter just leave me a comment here, or email, or Ravelry,  or Facebook, or Twitter, or Instagram by Monday May 9th at noon.  Good Luck!

I love the blue one and wouldn't it be nice for me to have the pattern? Because I just wore out my burgundy sweater-- the one I wore everywhere for several years!

Thank you for making crochet something that I want to continue doing. :) Between the patterns you've written and your great finds, I get to be my bi-craftual self.

GREAT idea to leave the side seams open! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the patterns.

I really like the open sides of the sweater. I've been crocheting cardigans and tanks the last while and would love to win a copy of the book.
Stay inspired!
