There are some things you will notice about me right away; I’m a rebel. I will always ask why and how. I like to dig deeper, to tear things apart and rebuild them. I grew up a challenged learner, with undiagnosed dyslexia and vision problems. Oftentimes I had to figure things out my own way, reverse-engineering solutions that helped me learn to read, do math and successfully navigate my world. Oh, and also like to make things as simple as possible.
I first fell in love with crochet watching YouTube. I saw people create beautiful things that took me back to my grandmother teaching me to crochet circles when I was seven. I immediately went on a yarn binge. And the books I read! Hundreds of pages on how to crochet intarsia, mosaics and granny squares!
I didn’t just want to replicate, I wanted to create. But it seemed like these designers I looked up to knew some magic secret that I just couldn’t grasp. And that was when I decided to rebel against crochet. That is when I began to treat crochet as a visual art – not a pattern, not a guage to be matched, not stitches to be counted. My patterns are not meant to be simply replicated, but they are step by step guides in how to adapt what I have done to meet your needs, shape and yarn choice easily.
My goal is to give you access to that magic secret. I oftentimes do away with yarn recommendations, guage and yes – counting. I know this is pretty out there, but if you’re ready to hold your own crochet rebellion, let’s go!
