Affiliate Information

B.hooked Crochet participates in the Amazon Associates program. You will see Amazon product listings of the yarn, hooks and notions I recommend for each project. When you click on one of the product listings, you will be directed to that product on Amazon.com. If you decide to purchase from Amazon, I will make a very small commission on that product and any other product in the same transaction. Please know that I only recommend products that  are optimal for the pattern, project or technique demonstrated, NOT because of the small commissions I make. You do not have to purchase your supplies from Amazon. Many of the products I recommend are available at retail stores. I provide this service as a convenience to you if this is the method of shopping you prefer.

B.hooked Crochet participates in Craftsy Affiliate program and Knit Picks Affiliate Program. You will see Craftsy and Knit Picks ads displaying helpful courses or product sales throughout the website. If you click on one of these ads and make a purchase, I will also make a small commission. Once again, I am recommending these brands because I use them personally. I only promote things that I think you will also find valuable.
