Crocheted with love, a warm wrap or a plump teddy bear can be just the "hug" someone needs, says designer Drew Emborsky, The Crochet Dude. After losing his mother, he says, "The motion of stitching and working with yarn was the therapy I needed to find comfort as I grieved. Truly it is that if you want to find comfort, comfort someone else. Now I am so happy to have created a book of patterns with the intention of giving you the opportunity to help others in their time of need. Receiving a handmade gift from you can change someone's outlook completely." Drew's nine designs include Mobius Cowl, Chemo Cap, Baby Comfort Blanket, Kennel Blanket, Baby Hat, Comfortghan, Prayer Shawl, Comfort Teddy, and Drawstring Bag. The book includes a contact list of national groups that distribute crocheted donations.
