Crochet Journey

This book includes 128-pages of written instructions, crochet charts, diagrams, photographs and travel journal entries. Explore the different destinations that these patterns were inspired by through the travel stories shared by Mark Roseboom.

I love the creative twist that this book was designed around. As the reader you get to explore the projects from a totally different perspective and it makes for an endearing crochet journey for each project you choose to make.

Your Crochet Journey begins with a Map of Contents where you can see the different locations Mark travelled to and for which he designed patterns to commemorate his journey. You will find the General Tips & Tricks for the Patterns included beginning on page 6, the stitch abbreviations (in US Terms) and symbols on page 9 and the patterns begin on page 10.

It is very difficult for me to choose my favorite project in this book because I truly love each of them. So, here are my top 3 picks:

  • La Boca Shawl
  • Rituals Pouf
  • Rivendell Shawl (because I am a HUGE LOTR fan)

I really enjoyed Mark Roseboom’s book and the way it was presented. The pages are beautifully put together. I think Mark has an excellent eye for color and design in his projects and I very much enjoyed his travel stories about each of the 12 destinations. I like the thought that you can make a project from each of these destinations, so it is a bit of a crochet travel adventure for the crocheter too.

  1. If I had this book I would try to make the tiled pillow. I think it is very visually interesting.

  2. Wonderful! I must say it’s very encouraging for me to continue crocheting. Seeing a man actually take up crochet is wonderful. The skill is in you so just seek and discover it. Thanks for sharing this achievement.

  3. I have my eye on this book for sure. I think my favorite pattern is the Porteguese Tiles, but I also love the Rituals Pouf.

  4. David s truly a crochet artist. I’ve asked for this book from “Santa”; winning a copy would enable me to share a copy with a fellow hooker. Thank you for this extraordinary giveaway.

  5. I would probably try the Rivendell shawl first. It looks beautiful!

  6. I don’t know how to choose🤔 I love them all, since I was asked, I would say Portuguese Tiles being my 1st then it would be Ketut’s Mandala then La Boca Shaw. How awesome to travel too deferent places around the world and crochet a piece that represents your journeys!

  7. I left my comment for which project I’d make on the post from your Scrap Busting Crochet Pattern review post. It’s the Broken TV Shawl. I love the project on the cover!
