Pattern Details

This was designed for babies in the NICU. They are doing fascinating work with these. Read some articles on the pattern page. Also makes a great cat toy. I have links to articles and a free video tutorial on my website that is linked in the pattern. I’m trying to do a nice thing by offering this pattern, I do not pretend to know anything medical related. Please check with your hospital before donating.

From the time I learned from my great-grandmother until now — over 25 years. Actual time crocheting (my 20s were a blur of school, work and debt, having a stash was not an option)– probably about 15. How’d you start designing? I got pregnant. I picked up the hook to make some stuff. I realized I liked designing rather than following a pattern, now I’ve been doing it over 6 years. Favorite yarn? Self striping in beautiful vibrant colors Where ya from? I spent the better part of my life in Southern California, and while I miss Disneyland and the predictable weather, I find that moving around from place to place a more interesting adventure. Currently I’m living with my family in the Bay Area but that will probably soon change as my husband’s military orders do. Update: I’m not back in Southern California for at least the next year. We’ll see where the Navy takes us next.
