Hello! I’m Carmen

Living on the coast of Ireland, I seek to mirror this natural beauty in my designs. All from my home in the countryside, surrounded by yarn, cats, a labrador and plenty of grandchildren! 

My designs focus on vibrant colour and playful shapes, with the goal being to add a splash of joy to a grey winter’s day!

I’ve been crafting since I was a young child, influenced by my mother and aunts who were skilled craftswomen.

My first book ‘Crochet Yourself Calm’ was published in 2016, which focused on the possibility of crochet to support mental health and mindfulness. I’ve since contributed to several books including Boho Crochet, Pixel Crochet, and Crochet Therapy; and magazines including Crochet Now, Inside Crochet, and I like Crochet.

For me, crochet is a lifestyle, an expression, and a profession all in one. And as such, I look forward to continuing to create and share with all those who love crochet for many years to come!

Please check back to my blog, and keep up with me on Instagram where I hang out, and I hope I can inspire you with colour and crochet!
