My good friend Robyn Chachula has been designing some of the best crochet patterns that I’ve seen in recent years. Her background as an architectural engineer shines through as she creates exquisite wearables and home decor that are, well, unexpected!! Here is a selection from her amazing bibliography:
“My initial approach to this book was that pure sense of justbeing nosy—what do other crochet designers have intheir houses? That then morphed into, what would anafghan look like at Leigh Radford’s house or in DrewEmborsky’s studio? And finally, how amazing would itbe to have all the masters work on one big canvas toshowcase our craft so we all can decorate our homes?”“The results are astounding,” says Robyn. “I askedeach crochet designer to use the afghan as a vehicle toshowcase their favorite aspect of crochet. Some wentcolorful, some turned to granny motifs, and otherscame up with intricate stitch patterns. Each projecthighlights the beauty of crochet cables, colorwork,lace, granny motifs, or Tunisian crochet. Plus, everyproject has the intimate stamp of the designer’s uniqueinspiration.”
