I'm a crochet designer running my indie pattern brand "ElevenHandmade". I love desinging edgy and hip garments and accessories for those who feel young at heart. I learned basics of croceht in school and from my granny and grannys' sister. Then - self tought. I was always interested in doing more and going beyond, that's why I tried out new stitches and patterns. At age 14 I was designing my own doilies. After some silence I picked crochet up again several years ago and never stoped since. Now not a day goes by without my crochet. I really enjoy creating my own designs. My aim is to change the perception of crochet as a craft: from tradition and handmade to individuality and style. Crochet is a great medium, it has a lot of technique to use and can look great at the same time. My aim is not to get hung up on tech stuff only, but to really make good looking, well-fitted things. I have received an award for Best New Crochet Designer of 2010 (by CLF) and won 2nd place in CGOA design competition in 2011 and 2012. I have collaborated with fashion designer Leila Shams (of New York) and created 5 crochet pieces for her fall 2012 collection that was shown on the runway of New York Fashion Week. My patterns have been published in major US crochet magazines like - Interweave Crochet and Crochet! Magazine, also Inside Crochet (UK).
