I have been crocheting since I was a teenager and started designing crochet patterns several years later. I wanted to make a sweater for my daughter and I couldn't read the crochet patterns. I later taught myself to read patterns. The first pattern I sold was a square sampler baby afghan to Crochet World and I haven't stopped designing since.
I also make one-of-a-kind freeform crochet scarves and sell them in my Etsy shop, on Ebay, and at local arts and craft sales.
This lovely neckwarmer features a textured ripple stitch that looks complicated but is actually pretty easy. Whether you button a few buttons or all of them, this neckwarmer will keep you warm with style. The instructions come in one size that fits most but you can simply alter the number of beginning chains to make it smaller or larger. Includes instructions for making front post treble crochet stitch.
