REBECCA VELASQUEZ learned to crochet at a very young age. As an adult, she resumed crocheting to honor the grandmother who taught her how. She quickly fell in love and, following her passion and a desire to build upon it, added knitting and spinning to her repertoire.
With a background that also includes sewing, Rebecca began designing and creating her own style. She has been published in Inside Crochet, Crochet World, and Petite Purls. Moreover, she has created designs for Classic Elite Yarns, Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns, Quince & Co Yarns, Kollage Yarns, Kollage Yarns, Caron Yarns, Webs, & SWTC, as well as being a contributing designer for â??Simply Crochetâ?? published by Interweave Press. She is currently working on multiple designs for future print publication in addition to continually creating knitting and crocheting design books of her own.
Rebecca's designs have a propensity to be classic in structure and silhouette. Her easy way with yarn selection and stitch choices are where her originality shines, appealing to both beginning and advanced crocheters and knitters alike.
Rebecca lives in Amarillo, Texas with her husband and four children that give her unconditional love, support, and inspiration.
Having a 2 year old niece has added so much to my life. As I hold her in my lap and read her favorite stories over and over again, all of the classic styles of the illustrations beckon to me; begging to be made a part of her wardrobe.
Naturally, I'm listening!
Classic Red is the first of the Storybook Classic Crochet collection. As of right now, I know this collection will contain 3 patterns, perhaps 5.
Classic Red is modern take on the typical beret style hat. It has a slight slouch to it's shaping, but not overly large so as to be bothersome to tots. The fabric created is dense enough for warmth without being bulky or stiff.
