Free Crochet E-Book

Blogged under Around the Web,crochet and knitting by Tammy on Thursday 25 August 2011 at 8:23 am

Crochet Me, an Interweave site, has a free ebook available for members of their site. The book is called Chain Reaction Afghan Project and includes 20 square patterns from well-known crochet designers such as Drew Emborsky, Edie Eckman, and Lily Chin. The original squares made for this book were assembled by Marcy Smith, and Interweave plans to auction off the completed afghan for charity.

I make a lot of square myself, so I’d love to make something like this some day. The way each square pattern is very different yet they all seem to come together for an overall look is wonderful. Plus with squares, you don’t have to deal with a huge afghan until the end when you put them all together.

    Hello Tammy,

    I hope it’s ok for me to comment on everything you do this way. I just wanted to say that I love the book, which I already have because I’m a member of Crochet Me, but also, I wanted to comment that I do not blog, yet. I’m still learning how to use a computer-can you believe it? I’m 55 years old, and I am electronically-challenged! However, I wanted to tell you that I love your site (which I just found tonight, duh!) and all your’re teachings on I have been a fan for many years and I am just now getting comfortable with visiting web sites and downloading projects from jewelry-making to crochet and other arts. I’m creative but I’m still learning. Thank you, Tammy, for all you do for us in the outer world-I am disabled, so all the patterns and project instructions really help me out. Thank you so much for finding the time to help those of us who love to make jewelry, and crochet, and other thread arts, but can’t afford the classes and patterns. I appreciate and love your talent. That’s enough, sorry, I get wordy and tend to ramble sometimes. This book is great for making afghans. Like you said, you don’t have to deal with a huge afghan, this way. The target of a great big afghan is somehow intimidating, but making one by making one square at a time, it is much easier. Thanks again.

    Very sincerely,
