    Congratulations on the publication of your book! I’ve been hooked on crochet (pardon the pun!) since I went on a course to learn how to crochet in Autumn 2014. If the pattern you’ve shared above is anything to go by then I know I will love your book.

    Gorgeous shawl, very modern and love the colours. I’d love to win one of your books, I taught myself from youtube video’s and most tutorials/patterns you find are in US terms, which get very confusing and you’re a UK girl, which is fab.

    What a beautiful shawl and congratulations on your book!

    I’d love to win, it might actually give this left-hander enough interest to actually sit down and sort out once and for all how to crochet properly 😄

      Hi Sue,
      I used a magic loop as I wanted to be able to completely close up the centre section of this foundation – if you prefer you could simply make a chain loop and work from that – although this can leave a small hole at the centre.
      Happy Crocheting!

    Laura ~ I just bought your book.. love it! I’ve been crocheting for the past year (thanks to youtube tutorials)… I have a novice question, I’m sure, about the Star Buster Stripes wrap:
    starting with the Magic Ring…
    do you have a photo of what that would look like? I know how to make a magic ring, but if I could see a photo of
    Foundation
    Row 1
    Row 2
    I think I would be set and could do it!
    thanks so much.. your patterns are lovely. I had not planned on buying a crochet book, but I saw your designs and was so inspired that I had to have it!!!

    Also… is the treble for the UK, so it’s double here in the US?

      Hi Amy,
      I don’t have any other photographs other than in the book – and I don’t have the samples here to take any additional photographs for you.
      I have been working on some videos for some crochet techniques and these will be ready in a soon – I will be sure to share the link with these are live! The terms in the book are UK in the UK edition, there is a conversion guide included to help!
      Hopefully that will help!

    I received this book as a gift last week and love every single pattern but I’ve already found a few mistakes. The gradient shawl ( can’t remember the name but it is cream and 2 shades of blue) I just can’t get the stitches to add up. From the first row! Surely I’m not the only one. Are there any corrections?

    Love this pattern. I am starting a free crochet site, where I curate a bunch of free crochet patterns that aren’t ugly (there are so many to sift through on most free crochet sites). Hopefully you don’t mind but I have linked to your pattern. You can view the link at thefreehooker.com. While I don’t have a lot of traffic yet, hopefully it will get you some extra sales of your book (which looks really awesome by the way, congrats).

    Just finished up this shawl in blue with beachy color accents. I made it a few rows shorter. Normally I crochet something and it never gets used. This wrap is fabulous. I love the generous size, the picot edging and the top down way it starts. When you put it on the top drapes into a beautiful shape. I love this and it is definitely not “granny”. I am a beginning, self taught crocheter and the pattern was easy to follow.
