Dora Ohrenstein

I’m a crochet designer, author and teacher who has been at this for - can you believe it - 10 years! My fifth book, The Crocheter’s Skill Building Handbook (Storey), is due out in November 2014. Previous books include The New Tunisian Crochet (Interweave), released in 2013 and Custom Crocheted Sweaters: Make Garments that Really Fit (Lark), published in 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.
