Welcome to Simply Hooked by Janet!
I am Janet from the lovely state of Ohio. I have been crocheting since I was 12 years old and I have learned a lot along the way.
I began crocheting so many things that I couldn’t keep them all to myself so I started selling finished items at a couple craft shows each year. Eventually I started designing my own crochet patterns in 2017.
I now design and publish between 18-24 patterns a year. Some of those patterns are exclusive paid only patterns and others are available free on my blog.
ABOUT MY PATTERNS:
- PRINT FRIENDLY – with just 1-2 photos per PDF (unless a stitch tutorial is included). There are no extra colors (just photos and logo). Most patterns are just 1-3 pages in length.
- EASY TO READ – with most being 12 point font and most being in a 2 column format.
- USE OF CRAFT YARN COUNCIL STANDARDS – proper project level categorized (Basic, Easy, Intermediate, Complex). Proper crochet abbreviations are used. Hook sizes are labeled as US with the number/letter/mm size stated. Standard sizing measurements used as stated by the CYC.
- TESTED – most patterns will be tested by multiple crocheters to ensure accuracy.
- TRAINING – Pattern writing training completed through the American Crochet Association.
It isn’t always easy designing with 2 littles around but I’m glad this gives me the freedom to be home with them while they are young.
I hope with my patterns that you find some that you absolutely enjoy making and using. I also hope that my patterns are ones that you can also make and gift to someone else.
