Comment received on the Simple Hearts pattern
“Thank you for making this pattern [Simple Hearts] very CLEAR and easy to understand! This is a gift and a skill. I have seen many cute crochet patterns with instructions that require mental gymnastics to understand. My 9 year old was even able to make one of these following your instructions. Great job!”


“A must have! For all level of Crocheters! Great reference from learning to crochet to how to do different techniques and everything Crochet! You must have this in your Library to reference stitches and how to do things you might have forgotten. Excellent value and great book!”

“When it comes to crochet, it’s important to get organized. You might find that you have a ton of patterns hiding in random spaces. And doesn’t it always seem like when you need a pattern the most you can’t seem to find it?

The Crocheter’s Design Companion by Phyllis Serbes solves this problem! In this 113-page book, you’ll find space to store all of your favorite patterns! This isn’t a traditional book as much as it is a place to store ideas, stay organized and get creative.

The book is broken down into five sections. The first section provides direction on how to use the book and features an adorable free crochet pattern! The second section is filled with guides for everything related to crochet including hook sizes, yarn weights and common abbreviations.

The third section is the largest and provides space for you to store your own crochet projects. On each project page, you can write down the name of the project, the source hook size, gauge and other notes. You can also include pictures of the project and pieces of the yarn label for safe keeping.

The fourth section is perfect for anyone that likes to create and design their own patterns. Sketch pictures and take notes as you go along – there’s tons of space on these pages! The final section provides room for miscellaneous notes and ideas.

This little book is the perfect resource for anyone who loves to crochet but needs help staying organized.”
