TESTIMONIAL from Catherine Henderson

Joey Lea Baird of Jo’s Crafty Hook has created another stunning pattern she called ” The Changing Seasons Centerpiece. 

She has created this centerpiece using basic stitches with several different finishes. 

I was so excited & grateful for being part of her test team! 

I worked on my version for a weekend  This amazing centerpiece works up so fast, and changes with every new row.  The pattern works great for either a left or right handed crocheter.  With comprehensive easy to understand instructions and photos for reference. 

I had so much fun making it, that I found myself rushing through my housework so I could sit down to work on my creation.  I used Value Ball Kringle Sparkle Yarn 8ply, in fall colors, with a 3.5mm hook. You can find this fantastic pattern!
