Crochet Patterns

What business does crochet have on a design site? Isn't that something that your grandma does while rocking on the front porch? I happen to see design in many things, even crochet. Crocheted toys are 3D objects, which in it's simplest form, is what I do for a living...I design 3D (and 2D for that matter) objects. When I design a crocheted toy, I follow the same process that I follow when I'm designing a factory-manufactured product or retail fixture. I start by sketching ideas, refining those ideas until I come upon one that works. I then deconstruct it to figure out how it needs to be made. I must consider the possibilities and limitations of my the materials, and carefully consider how the whole thing will be constructed. The only difference is that in the end, I am creating every shape by hand with a hook and a piece of yarn. Sounds like an interesting design problem to me! Since I make these fun soft toys for my friends and family anyway, I figured, why not actually start writing down what I'm doing, and then use my photography and 2D graphic design skills to turn them into patterns so other people can enjoy them. That's where my shopping section was born...it's still a work in progress and I hope to have more designs up soon! Thanks for looking!!
