Recently I teamed up with Leisure Arts to bring you a brand new pattern book for planned pooling crochet. The book is titled ‘Yarn Pooling Made Easy’ and you can purchase your copy now. In order to really celebrate this new book I wanted to throw a party. Leisure Arts and Red Heart have graciously agreed to join in the party with us and will be offering some great giveaways.

About Planned Pooling:
Planned pooling crochet has been a hot topic for about a year now. Although people have been crazy about the technique it isn’t always an easy one to pick up. Anyone who needs some guidance of where to start with planned pooling should head to my YouTube channel and watch the videos in my planned pooling playlist. Along with the videos I also have a section on my blog with quite a few articles about the topic.
Reading through my blog posts you will see that I have been lucky to have two wonderful ladies help me get the information out to you on the planned pooling topic. These two ladies are also a part of the Planned Pooling Crochet Facebook group. Head over to the group page for some amazing support from others who love to work with planned pooling crochet.
With 8 new designs in the book I hope that you will find something that you love. All of the patterns are designed in Red Heart yarns. Red Heart will be offering us a giveaway for each of the patterns in the book and a grand prize at the end.
Book Reviews and Giveaway:
When I make a purchase I always feel better when a friend has recommended the item. To help you see how great the new projects are I shared a copy of the book with some of my friends so they could review it and share their honest opinion.
Over the next 10 days please join me with some of my blogger friends with a review of the book. Each day a new blogger will be featured. For each of these bloggers you will have the chance to win you very own copy of the Yarn Pooling Made Easy book. Thank you to Leisure Arts for sponsoring this giveaway.
