>Yoyo Crochet Tutorial in book form


My popular yo-yo crochet tutorial has now been made into a book so you can take it with you when you go places and keep it with your project.  Annie’s Attic has made it available for those who have asked when can they buy a hard copy the time is approaching

There are the old ways as well as a few new ways of manipulating the yoyos such as :Hexagon yo-yo, zig-zag yo-yo, granny square yo-yo, straight lines yo-yo and yo-yos in a chevron formation.  The techniques are discussed in the projects so you can learn to manipulate this very versatile stitch all the more and create some of your own unique projects as well as the ones in the book.

  • You can be put on a waiting email list so when the book is available to pre-order you will receive and email for it.  That area is in the link above in the box that reads “notify me”. 

I am so excited about this it is so weird to see my name in print on a book cover that can be purchased all over the world by a major distributor.  This is something I wanted to do for a while I hope to be able to do more things in the future.

Projects include

  1. baby blanket
  2. hex lap afghan( which has the hexagon pattern and how to join them in it)
  3. hex pillow
  4. trivet
  5. place-mat set
  6. matching hot plate for place-mat set
  7. shawl
  8. hat to match shawl (2 versions of hat one short and one longer)
  9. scarf 
  • Then there is the tutorial itself  which covers row construction, granny construction, joining has more info for different techniques than the one on my blog did

    Bonus explanations of how to use tutorial in the joining area of the book’s how to there is ideas how to make 3 more items

    1. granny square yoyo scarf
    2. giant yo-yo granny square baby car seat afghan
    3. granny squares (like my afghan in thread) with starting chain counts

    To clear up some confusion that may arise from the sites references.
    Annie’s site reads 8 projects and the cover reads 9 but there are 12 if you count the three explained at the end of the joining tutorial and then there is the tutorial itself.  I am not counting the second version of the hat as a separate pattern but if you did then add one more to the list.

      >That's so awesome! *HUGS!* Your tutorials are always so detailed and easy-to-follow, so I'm not surprised that publishers have picked up on your talents. To be published means a lasting impact–almost as much a legacy as your children! 😀
