Hi, I'm Joe and I'm an 18 year-old crochet designer and I've recently started dyeing too!
I have been crocheting for 8 years and I published my first design in 2018. One of my biggest achievements was getting my design on the cover of 'Crochet Now' magazine. It was my Northern Lights Plaid Scarf pattern (which I am still in love with) and you can buy that from my website by clicking here. I have released many more patterns since (my favourite is the Red Hot Sweater) and have many more coming for you all in the next few months.
However, my hand dyeing journey has only just started, I have dyed 9 colourways for my shop at the minute and I am very proud of them all. I use a handpainting technique (personally, I think its the most fun way to dye yarn). I can't wait to get creative with some more fun colourways in the future!
You can find both my patterns and my hand dyed yarn here on my website (I've recently moved from Etsy on to here). My patterns are still available on both Ravelry and Etsy, however, but a great thing about having my own website is that the fees are next-to-nothing compared to Ravelry and Etsy! So, I'd appreciate it if you supported my little business!
