Rohn Strong found his passion for fiber when he discovered crochet at about 6 years old. Now, he spins a little, weaves a little, knits a lot and crochets even more. Through his innovative designs, Rohn's goal is to change the way that crochet is seen: not as a second-class citizen, but as a viable, beautiful, functional and fun method of creativity. In that pursuit, he's written multiple books and dreamed up patterns for a variety of respected magazines.
