Mod Floral Blanket: coupon + giveaway!

Mod Floral Blanket eBook: crochet pattern + photo tutorial by Lisa Clarke

It’s been a long time coming, and today I am pleased as punch to announce my new book: Mod Floral Blanket!

To celebrate, I’m giving a free copy to one of you, and 50% off coupons to 20 of you! More on that in a minute, but first I need to squeeze into my salesperson hat for just a moment and tell you what is so cool about this book that you’d want to spend your hard-earned pennies on it!

  1. I assume if you’ve gotten this far you already think the project is a pretty one, so I don’t have to sell you on that.
  2. It’s suitable for advanced beginners, so you don’t need to know too, too much going in.
  3. I explain how to do every stitch from single crochet to triple crochet (in case you’ve forgotten)
  4. Within a week, I will have a YouTube video available, demonstrating every stitch you need to know for this, so no worries if you are new to crochet.
  5. There are 13 pages and 34 photos to guide you through the entire process
  6. There’s also an easily-printable simple pattern included for those of you who are fine without all of those photos
  7. There’s some bonus stuff in there, like: how to arrange your workflow so you won’t get bored or overwhelmed
  8. I talk a little bit about how color variations build visual interest
  9. You can use this pattern to make smaller, more instant-gratification items just by varying the number of blocks you use. Heck, crochet one block in cotton yarn and you’ve got a nice coaster!
  10. There’s still time to whip this up as a special holiday gift!
  11. If you’re the only girl in a house of boys, this is one project you can make for yourself and nobody else will make off with it…


Those are all of the reasons I can come up with off of the top of my head right now, but there are others I am sure. Take a look at the product page and you will get a clear picture of what you need to know, and what you will learn.

Okay, so about that giveaway…

There is one free copy up for grabs, and you can win it if you enter below. You can get extra entries by sharing the giveaway with friends, so be sure to take a look at all of the options and give yourself as many chances as possible to win!

And the coupons…

I’ve set up this coupon code: CROCHETFUN. It will give you 50% off the purchase price of Mod Floral Blanket, if you are one of the first 20 people to use it. After the coupon is redeemed twenty times, it becomes inactive, so if you want the book at this reduced price, you should hurry.

If you entered the giveaway, you can still buy the book now. I’ll refund your money if you win.

Good luck, and thank you for your support!

(While this book is also available at Etsy, Craftsy, and Ravelry, the coupon only applies to purchases made here in the Polka Dot Cottage Download Shop.)
