If you want to become a crochet designer, here’s what you need to know.
Time, patience and persistence are three of the most important ingredients to becoming a crochet designer. Once you have decided on this as a goal, the next step is to design your first project. It doesn’t need to be complicated or intricate – it only requires that you create something without the direction from others!
I’m joined by, Lorene, from Cre8tion Crochet, and she is here to share her personal story and so many tips with you about becoming a designer. She has experience in online and physical publication and she doesn’t hold back any information!
