Drew and Kristin 2012.jpg

Drew Emborsky is the master behind the wildly successful The Crochet Dude brand. You may know Drew from his days on TV, his books, his products or his blog. Drew has nine books published to date, appeared in four seasons of the PBS TV show Knit & Crochet Now as the crochet expert, a line of his own signature hooks and tools available nationwide, and he's been known to teach at fiber-related conferences as well as on cruises.

Drew & I have been friends for years. We both began our careers around the same time and bumped into each other at many trade shows over the years. 

Drew has designed gorgeous patterns with Kristin Omdahl yarns. His patterns featuring Be So Sporty Yarn, Be So Brave Yarn and Be So Tender Yarn are so pretty and very popular!

Here is what Drew thinks of Motif Magic: 17 Join As You Go Projects to Knit and Crochet:

"I bought this book, Motif Magic by Kristin Omdahl, literally the MOMENT it was published. Her design sensibility is impeccable and I’m always impressed by her clever construction and this her 14th published book on the subject, is NO exception! (I’m giving away an autographed copy, see details later on in this post).

I’ve been crocheting and knitting most of my life and when someone says the magic words “join as you go” I go on high alert! You mean I won’t be left with a stack of motifs that then have to be whipstiched together (a step I’ll admit that I sometimes never get to)?

Count me in!

In this full color book Kristin offers up 17 gorgeous shawls, cowls and bags expertly balancing between both crochet and knit. You’ll learn a variety of construction styles with charts and also line by line instructions!"
