I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

It’s time for some new tools in the toolbox.

While we all run to our traditional standbys, it’s always good to put learn more and alternate techniques. Thus, here are some new and novel stitches that you may not have seen, but should definitely get to know. Consequently, each one is made into a fun little project that demonstrates how it’s used and how you can incorporate it into other projects. Overall, these are fun tutorials to get you learning new stitches and to expand your crochet vocabulary. Additionally, you can take these projects and expand them into your own, glorious designs. Indeed, what could be better?
