I come from a long line of knitters, and have always been mortified by my inability to get the hang of it. But on a spring break trip back home in March 2011 my mom (who is a terrific knitter) taught me to crochet and well, I pretty much took off from there! I’ve hardly gone a day without stitching since.
I design all of my patterns myself, and test them as much as possible to work out all the kinks. Once the pattern is ready to head out into the world, I create a nice PDF with lots of detail, including pictures, charts, tips, and how-tos. I put loads of work into designing the patterns themselves, but I also spend hours making sure everything looks clear and extra-beautiful for you! I do sometimes post FO’s I’ve made from my own patterns on Ravelry, but I don’t rate, gauge the difficulty of, or favorite my patterns -- I’ll leave that for you.
One other quick note: All of my patterns are written using US crochet terms. I try to remember to give metric equivalents for stuff like sizing, but it’s not impossible I’ve forgotten somewhere.
Please note that the patterns offered are for PERSONAL USE ONLY. You can give them as gifts, but please do not sell items made from these patterns or re-post these patterns or my photos on other sites. Thank you!!
