I'm a mechanical engineer by training, a crochet designer by current occupation, and author of three books of crochet patterns. I like to make things and draw things, and I especially love to crochet: using stitches to create larger shapes is just like engineering -- but with thread! I've always been fascinated with geometric patterns, and I enjoy being outside, so designs from geometry and nature make frequent appearances in my pieces. (I've found that crochet lends itself to those types of designs, which is another reason I like it so much.)View all patterns by designer (5) »
These thread crochet medallions are pretty in windows or on walls, and I use a lot of them on my Christmas tree: they're soft and lightweight, and they don't shatter (which is a lucky thing in a house with small children and an ornament-stealing cat!). I love to give them as a small gift, and other people have told me that they use them to decorate wrapped presents. Make them in lots of colors, and use them liberally!
