About the De­signer

Crochet World - - Designer Spotlight - Karen George

My mother and aunt taught me to cro­chet when I was young. It wasn’t un­til years later, when I joined a lo­cal guild, that I met peo­ple who helped me to hone my skills. For many years, I was a pro­fes­sional fin­isher of cro­cheted and knit­ted items. It kept me quite busy, and there was lit­tle time to de­velop de­signs of my own. In 2016, I be­came a full-time de­signer and was able to de­vote the time to this new ca­reer. Lit­tle did I know that I was not leav­ing the old ca­reer be­hind, as fin­ish­ing is such a cru­cial part of the process and one that I truly en­joy. I love all things cro­chet. It is what re­laxes me at the end of a busy day. My idea of a good time is go­ing through stitch pat­tern books and just swatch­ing, swatch­ing, swatch­ing!
