Crochet With Mamachee GIVEAWAY

Print book turned e-book story….

If you’ve been following along with my blog and/or Facebook, you may have heard that I signed a contract with a publisher. I was going to be a published Author to a real, live book! Everything was going along great…I met my dates and had all of the material completed but then came the bad news. The publishing company was sold to another company and they had to move my publish date back. I was too excited about all the patterns and material that I had put together…I just couldn’t wait any longer and so, I politely asked to be released from my contract. Rather than individually publishing each pattern as I normally do, I eventually decided to put together all of the material and publish an e-book. I purchased professional publishing software, learned how to use it and…’s all done! I couldn’t be more happy with “my book baby.”


This e-book contains 28 patterns crochet patterns! 25 of those patterns are brand new and exclusive to the book (woo!)


The book has more than just crochet patterns…

There is a section on Crochet. You’ll find funny facts, charts, abbreviations and more.

There is a section on Color. You’ll learn about color terms, color harmony and hopefully have a far easier time pairing colors. 

There is a section on Yarn. Do you know the difference between a skein, ball, hank, cake, and blank? Do you know the difference between a marl, speckled and tweed yarn? 

Whether you are a budding crocheter or a seasoned enthusiast, this e-book will be a great resource to add to your crochet library.

These three new patterns are the most popular on Ravelry:

!GIVEAWAY! – 3 winners will receive a free copy of this e-book.

We are going to make this easy! All you have to do to enter the giveaway is visit the Ravelry link below and click on your favorite pattern(s), add them to your favorite (give them a heart!), and then come back here to let me know what your favorite new design is in the comments along with your ravelry username. (If you’re reading this in your e-mail, all you have to do is reply to this e-mail and it will leave a comment on the blog.)

That’s it!

Next Monday (April 4th), I’ll choose 3 winner to receive a free copy of this e-book in their Ravelry library. Please only leave one comment. If you need to ask any additional questions or have any more comments, then please use the contact page. Good luck!

    My favs so far are the Jane Frost hat, Janalea wristwarmers & the Triscia Cowl! But they are all truly fabulous!!

  48. Sumi Reply

    I couldn’t pick just one favorite. I love the Tamara Cowl so I was thrilled to see the Tamara Handwarmers. The Imperial Hat just looks so cool and the “crown” gives the option for a real pop of color or not. And because I am an absolute texture junkie, the Tiffany Page Handwarmers have to be among my favorites. I am HulaSumi on Ravelry.

    WOW some real pretty new patterns! And with my granddaughter heading off to college next fall she could use a lot of these gorgeous patterns as she will be attending school in the Boston area, known for the long, cold winters. I know as I grew up there. She thinks Green Bay is bad…wait til she feels that moisture off the ocean ;)Thanks for the chance to win the e-book. I have given  to and even made a folder of the patterns | | | | | |

    Galilee Cowl

    Oma House Slippers

    Just checked out your new patterns on Ravelry…there are so many delicious patterns to pick from but I did land on three of them,

    The Billows Cowl looks like puffs of warmth would surround your neck.

    The Megan Boots Cuffs are such a sweet pattern that would be a lovely addition to a teen’s outfit

    The Wily Hand Warmers have such attractive wavy cables, who could resist.

    My Ravelry name is Senora Susie

    Hoping that I am one of the lucky one’s in the contest.

    Thank you,April Jackson

  75. Helen Bickerton Reply

    Fantastic designs, I love them all, it was hard to choose my overall favourite. But after careful deliberation, I have to go with the Lyric Cowl. It’s so funky with the two contrasting tones, this will be the first thing I make from the e-book! The weather here in the UK should be warming up now but it’s not so all the designs in here will keep me toasty 🙂
