Christmas Amigurumi Workshop - 7th December

I'm running a really good workshop for Christmas on the 7th December on how to make Crochet Toys (Amigurumi). They make really great little Christmas gifts or decorations. Come along! Mince pies too!! This is for all levels, you just need to know how to make a double crochet.

Hello! I had to tell you that I've been making many things from your book "Cute and Easy Crochet", I love it! I crochet a lot and have been enjoying your book! I do have a question though... The Summer Evening Shawl pattern says it measures 67 by 27 1/2 inches. I recently started the shawl and mine is much bigger than 27 1/2 inches. You make 202 chains in the beginning. Was yours a little larger as well? Id you could please let me know how I can fix this ASAP, I'd appreciate it so much!

Hi Krista, sorry for the delay. If the shawl is coming out bigger than the pattern states, either try making it with a smaller hook, or use less stitches. The pattern is made with a simple chain stitch, so you would be able to adapt it quite easily. Good luck, I hope you get on with it ok.

Thank you so much for getting back to me! After doing a few more rows on the shawl I realized it began to shrink as more weight was added to it, it went form 43 inches, to 33 inches, so I'm guessing as I do more it will get a little smaller. Thank you so much again for getting back to me! I love the shawl so far, as well as the other patterns I've made in your book!
