I want to share the story behind this very first pattern I published:
A few weeks after having my second child, a local photographer contacted me asking for a favor. She had heard the story of a little boy who was born with fluid on his brain. The doctors had decided to wait on operating and to send baby Aiden home to observe over the next few weeks.

Not sure what was going to happen over the next few days, the photographer wanted to schedule a session for the very next day and was asking me to make a special outfit. As a new mom myself and low on sleep it would have been easy to say no, however, I felt this was an important situation where my skills were needed. I searched the web for just the right outfit and couldn’t find anything that stood out to me. So, I grabbed some yarn, paper, and pencil and after some time, I looked at my finished product.

My very first pattern design was the crochet baby boxer outfit. I finished it moments before the photography session and was honored to spend time with Aiden and his mother.

After the image was posted on social media, I began receiving requests for the outfit from other parents who also had little fighters. I can’t tell you how many outfits I ended up making before quickly finding out I was not physically capable of keeping up with the requests. I didn’t want to let customers down, and I knew there was a big crochet community full of love that could make them.

I typed up my very first pattern and published it. The response and support from the crochet community was overwhelming. I was touched by the amount of people all over the world making this pattern.

Since then I’ve learned so much and continue to challenge myself creatively and technically. I’m always learning and feeling inspired by the crochet and knit community. That community is a big part of my heart.

I’m also happy to report baby Aiden has defied the odds and continues to grow and strive. I love watching him on Facebook and seeing all his cute little smiles. They warm my heart.
With love,
Briana
