Hi friends! I started designing my own patterns in early 2011, when I decided to combine my first and middle name to create the business name Melmaria Designs. (A little confusing for some, but if anyone's wondering, it's pronounced Mel-mar-EE-ah). An avid crocheter since the age of 9, I've since learned how to design and publish my own patterns, which is really cool! The cold climate and historical flavor of my native New England inspire many of my designs. Look for one of my patterns in 101 Designer Crochet Wonders by Storey Publishing!
