[CLOSED] COLORFUL CROCHET & GIVEAWAY

Colorful Crochet is the newly released and much anticipated book by the talented Marriane Dekkers- Roos from Marrose-CCC. It is packed full of colorful and practical items to make for the home, yourself and little ones. 
What I love most about the book is that it is really made in Marianne's style; using all those bright and happy shades of colors - hence the title! Marianne herself also appears in the book as a model adding a really personalized touch to the whole venture!

The book includes more than 20 beautiful projects including , pillows, blankets, clothing, and items to decorate the home. Projects are suitable for the confident beginner and include a variety of stitches as well as plenty of tips for customising the projects with alternative yarn weights and other sweet details to really make the project your own.
The hard part was deciding which project to make first! There are so many wonderful items to select from in Colorful Crochet. I started with the Colorful Cushion Roll Lenize, a cushion roll made with a lovely and straightforward crochet motif!

I used DMC Natura Just Cotton to make my motifs. I used a smaller hook and a different yarn weight than the original pattern but the motif worked up wonderful and I must say I am addicted to making these!
Unfortunately the project is not finished yet but I will definitely be posting the progress and the finished result soon! 
And now the fun part! Marianne and Tuva Publishing have very kindly sent me an extra copy of the book, so I have one that I can giveaway to you. This giveaway is  open worldwide and ends on Friday 5/26. I will announce the winner on Saturday 5/27.
Giveaway winner: OFELIA
