I’m super excited today to share an exciting new project: I edited a book of crochet accessories! Woo! Clever Crocheted Accessories, published by Interweave Press, is on sale now. My role in this project was to come up with ideas for a collection of crocheted accessories that were modern and stylish, yet classic at the same time. Then I asked all my favorite designers in the industry to contribute projects for the book, and we worked together to pick yarn and colors, and fine-tune the direction of the projects. The result is truly a stellar collection of designs by all the best names in the crochet world!
I really, really enjoyed working on this book because I love collaborating with designers on ideas and seeing it all come to life. It’s just fun to be part of the creation of so many cool designs. Want to take a peek at what this amazing dream team of designers created? Here ya go (links to all the designers are at the bottom of this post:
