Creating with Crocheted Motifs

Sep 12, 2011

We won! I know, you didn't even know we were entered into a competition, but congratulations. As I'm sure you have heard, we are in the midst of our StashBuster sale over at the Crochet Me Shop. You will find DVDs, magazines, books, and patterns at 40-60% off. And as a special prize, you can purchase 150 Knit & Crochet Motifs: Anything-but-Square Shapes for Garments, Accessories, Afghans, and Throws, a new book in 2011, for 60% off. I'll let you in on a little secret. They don't normally discount new books at the highest percentage, but I talked them into it this time.

This is one of my favorite books of 2011. Packed full of crochet and knit motifs, about half of each, Heather Lodinsky includes suggestions for motifs combinations. Take her advice and create scarves of flower blossoms, hexagonal afghans, or snowflake table runners.

Or check out the simple layout ideas. Tap into your own creativity and use these basic shape layout suggestions to combine your own selection of motifs. Some of the layouts combine different shapes, such as the octagons and squares, while some, such as the hexagons, combine motifs of the same shape. I made a quick mock-up of a design combining the Classic Hexagon and Broken Rib Hexagon, but I have many more fantastic ideas for motif combinations.

Try working motifs in a variety of yarn weights as well. Worsted motifs would make a great afghan, a woolen sportweight would create an elegant scarf, and thread would craft a dainty table runner. Or combine the motifs to create skirts, sweaters, or other garments.

What would you like to create? Purchase 150 Knit & Crochet Motifs today and begin designing your own motif works of art.

Best wishes,

Come on people, Do not make a big deal of getting 60%, Yes, 60% off on a new book !!! up in the article, and an additional big deal down at the bottom,  in bold type, 60% and then sneak in the price. $14.97 is NOT 60% of $24.95. I thought an additional % would be taken off in the shopping cart, but no. There is a place for a coupon, but I can't find one. However, I do admit to wearing bifocals and neither my calculator nor myself is exactly young. I have heard about this 'new math'. Perhaps I should point out that $14.97 is 60% of of $24.95. BUT to find out what you have to pay, you have to subtract ...and your actual price should be around $9.98...Half price would be $12.48. 60% would be less than that, not more than that. Now is the book is 60% off or not. Somebody let me know.

Thank you for the deep discount!  I purchased two; one as a present for my sister's birthday which is rapidly approaching and one for myself to enjoy.  Thank you again, it looks to be a lovely book and I can't wait to get it!
