I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

  3. The last part of R1 reads: "Work 2 DC into ring, CH 2, work 2 DC into ring; CH 2, SL ST into 3rd ST of 3 CH, TURN"
    But I think it should read "Work 2 DC into ring, CH 2, work 3 DC into ring; CH 2, SL ST into 3rd ST of 3 CH, TURN"
