For several years I dreamed of being a crochet designer, and one day I took a leap of faith and submitted my designs for publication. I was fortunate to have my very first submission accepted. I create designs for books, publications, and direct sale. I am a professional member of the Crochet Guild of America, and I love to design crochet fashion, accessories and home décor using traditional techniques to create modern, contemporary designs.
This Is Crochet features my unique crochet designs and patterns. My work has been featured in publications such as Interweave Crochet and Crochet World, in addition to designs and projects that are available only at the This Is Crochet. Visit the Shop page for the my latest offerings.
Take care, TurquoizBlue
Time to start thinking about layers as we enter into the Fall season. Here’s a preview of a new design for a layering piece that can be worn in multiple ways.
