I’ve been crocheting since my grandmother taught me when I was 9. I conquered my fear of knitting in 2010, and haven’t looked back since.
I’m the crochet and knitting blogger, designer, and teacher behind Underground Crafter. We have a Ravelry group here where I host my crochet- and knit-a-longs. I share free patterns; crafty tips, tutorial, and product reviews; giveaways; and more on my blog.
I’m also the host of the Creative Yarn Entrepreneur Show, a podcast filled with ideas for launching, managing, and evolving your indie yarn-related business and tips for staying creative, productive, and sane. You can listen to episodes and read detailed show notes for each show here. My latest book is Make Money Teaching Crochet: Launch Your Business, Increase Your Side Income, Reach More Students.
All of my self-published (Underground Crafter) patterns use U.S. abbreviations. These patterns are for personal use only. You may use the patterns to make unlimited items for yourself, for charity, or to give as gifts. You may sell items you personally make by hand from the patterns. You may not sell, copy, or distribute my patterns. If you would like to teach a class based on any of my patterns, please contact me to purchase a commercial use pattern.
I can easily be reached via PM to MarieInNYC here on Ravelry or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Podcast questions should be directed to email@example.com.) Thanks for supporting indie designers!
