People craft for a variety of reasons. For many, it's a wonderful source of stress-relief and relaxation. Now, thanks to the the Stitch Red campaign (started by Jimmy Beans Wool founder Laura Zander) and the help of craft celebrities in the yarn and fabric industries, crafting and crochet can actually help fight women's heart disease, too!

First there was Sew Red and then Knit Red. Now, it's finally time for crocheters to join the fight against women's heart disease with Crochet Red. The third book in the successful Stitch Red series, Crochet Red features a collection gorgeous crochet patterns designed by a variety of talented designers including Edie Eckman, Robyn Chachula, Kristin Omdahl, Linda Permann, Melissa Leapman, Nicky Epstein, Deborah Newton, and Jenny King. A variety of patterns are availabile such as the Tunisian Chevron Scarf (pg. 28), Petal Cabled Hat (pg. 31), Gingham Afghan (pg. 34), Mixed Motif Tote (pg 48), Textured Jacket (pg. 60), and more.

But if you think this is just another collection of crochet patterns, then think again. Crochet Red offers not only beautiful crochet patterns, but also encouragement for women to take control of their heart health. The patterns are accompanied by personal stories by the designers about heart disease, or tips and tricks for staying healthy. This book is not just your average crochet book; it's inspiration and motivation for women to stay both happy AND healthy.

As if this Crochet Red doesn't sound incredible enough, a percentage of the sales of this book goes to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, in support of The Heart Truth and women’s heart health education and research. Crochet has never been so rewarding!

It would be great if you could include a link to the book! I did find it on Amazon and I am interested in the book. Born with CHD, and now diagnosed with afib I crochet to help relive stress and keep my afib a little under control. So important to make women aware of heart issues and help them to learn to live full lives despite heart disease

I am definitely addicted to yarn! Candy & flowers are nice. Yarn gives to the stitcher and gives to the wearer!

I like anything chocolate but being dibetic I just can't have any.

would definitely like to win this book...and save my $$ for yarn...pick me, pick me...

id have to say yellow and vaigated

ok I will definitely look for this in January when I can afford it I will add it to my Think Pink Crochet Book. It sounds terrific and I would definitely make several of the listed designs and am very curious about the ones not listed. I am also looking forward to reading the info and stories you have included in it. What a great project.
