Carmen Nuland

My name is Carmen and I’m so glad you stopped by! “A Simple Homestead” consists of a small plot of land with a whiny Basset Hound and a few laying hens. We are passionate about do-it-yourself (DIY) and make-your-own (MYO) for a simpler, healthier lifestyle.

I am a knit and crochet designer who creates on everything from bulky cowls to delicate doilies and lace, stranded knitting to Tunisian crochet. My style is often whimsical and fun but sometimes branches off into soft elegant designs. Come join the Ravelry group to learn more about new designs, upcoming KALs/CALs and giveaways!

Sign up for my newsletter to get notification of new patterns, giveaways and discounts!

I am a tech editor who has taken Joeli’s Tech Editing class. PM me if you are looking for help with your patterns!

My shop has knitting and crochet tools - such as stitch markers and braided leather bag handles.

Thanks for visiting!
