Dora Ohrenstein

Iā€™m a crochet designer, author and teacher who has been at this for - can you believe it - 12 years! My sixth book, Top Down Crochet Sweaters was published in December 2016. Previous books include The Crocheter’s Skill Building Handbook (Storey), The New Tunisian Crochet (Interweave), and Custom Crocheted Sweaters: Make Garments that Really Fit (Lark 2012). I publish 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.
