If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember my review and giveaway almost exactly one year ago of the Sharp Crochet Hook. Well, one year later, I’m happy to report that I still think this product is just as awesome as last time I talked about it. And I have another one to give away to you today!
In case this concept is new to you, I’ll fill you in: crocheting edgings through fabric (such as a cute border along a pillowcase) is often a big ol’ pain the booty. Up until now, your options were to pre-poke holes through the fabric before you could start crocheting, or try to jam a blunt-ended crochet hook through fabric. Neither way is fun. But the Sharp Crochet Hook is a great solution to this issue: it’s just what it sounds like—a sharp, pointed hook—and can glide straight through your fabric quickly and easily, eliminating the need to poke holes before you can start working. If you’ve ever wasted time poking holes or gotten frustrated trying to jam a regular rounded hook through fabric, you know what a great timesaver this can be.
(This little cutie is my nephew almost exactly one year ago, sporting the goodies his Auntie Rachel made for him—pay special attention to the blanket, which I used the Sharp Crochet Hook on to create a cute, cozy edging!)
The hook has even been redesigned recently to make it even easier to use through thicker fabrics without getting stuck or snagging, so now is the perfect time to try one out. I have a combo pack to give away to you today—a newly redesigned hook and pattern book in one.
The book has so many cute ideas using the Sharp hook, and they’d make wonderfully personalized Christmas gifts! Some of my favorite patterns/projects in the pattern book:
I love the idea of crocheting around the bottom of a handmade or storebought skirt to add a little more personality—and crocheting your own baby shoes through a leather sole ? adorable—and that blanket is one of the most unique designs I’ve ever seen. Love it.
So, are you interested? Want to give the Sharp Crochet Hook a try to help create handmade gifts for loved ones? Or maybe you love somebody who crochets and could give it away as a holiday gift? Enter below to win the pattern book + hook combo pack. Good luck!a Rafflecopter giveaway
