Then the standard hook that is included can be used to finish the work.

Crochet Undercover for Your Little Superheroes!
I had so much fun creating the designs for Crochet Undercover. From the time the concept began to dance around my head...to attaching the final touches to each hat...the only thing I could think about was how much fun each of my tiny heroes was going to have hiding their true identity under each hat.
The patterns in Crochet Undercover will complete whatever super-secret character your child wants to be for the day; whether they are ready to be the Superstar hero who saves the world from an evil nemesis, or the Mutant X ninja with super-cool karate moves, or the huge Dinomite that eats and destroys everything in its path-our hats are sure to please your pickiest heroes.
Inside you will find a fabulous selection of children's one-of-a-kind hats, handcrafted with quality yarns in delicious designer colors. I'm sure you will enjoy making these as much as your superheroes will enjoy wearing them!
Just Like Me
Every girl can remember her favorite doll and the time spent grooming and dressing her while talking about secret plans, fairy tales, and make-believe.
I remember my doll. I loved making outfits for her. They were not perfect-in fact, they were rather awful-but my doll looked great...or so I thought.
As a young mother to three little girls, I crocheted outfits for their dolls; some of which have endured the tests of child play and time. When my granddaughter developed a love for collecting dolls, it was just natural that I decided to design and crochet for her too.
I know you will love making our designs. It's my hope that the little girls in your life will travel with them for a long, long time; that they will attend many tea parties, fashion shows, birthdays, and school classes; that they will endure hundreds of cuddles and hugs; and if you're lucky, someday, although ragged and worn, they might even make it to a whole new generation of girls and dolls. Enjoy!

Crochet Bouquet for Baby
I once read a fortune cookie's wise words, "When the flowers bloom, so will great joy in your life." I believe this. Flowers can cheer us up with their fragrance and perfect colors. They say "I love you" when you lack the words to express it, they comfort us in times of need, and for us, they have been a source of inspiration.
It was my desire to capture these deep emotions, these life moments, with our latest creation; Crochet Bouquet.
Crochet flowers are an art form for me--created to inspire, to embellish, and to delight. The colors and textures have been carefully picked. Each unique blossom reminds me of the simple and yet beautiful things in life.
My flowers are purely homegrown, and the designs are completely original, handcrafted with quality yarns and festive colors. Whether you are planning to use a crochet flower for a broach for yourself or for a baby's hat, I have created a beautiful selection of blossoms for your delight.
I hope my book will inspire you to make and gift crochet flowers, to cheer up, inspire, and express your love for those around you.
