Dora Ohrenstein

I’m a crochet designer, author and teacher who has been at this for 15 years! My seventh book, Crochet Every Way Stitch Dictionary, was published in 2019, and my popular book titled Top Down Crochet Sweaters was published in December 2016. I have published regularly in just about all the crochet magazines, and you can also find my indie patterns at my website: www.crochetinsider.com, along with some fact filled articles on the history and international traditions of crochet.

I’m a lifelong New Yorker with a former life as a performing artist (soprano!). I still teach singing at a local college and love it.
