Hi and welcome to Crochet is the Way! Here you'll find free crochet patterns, tutorials, and rants about a life full of crochet (all with the occasional kitty pic included). I'm Jenny, the hand behind the hook, camera, and keyboard. I started the Crochet is the Way blog as a way to get my life back after developing rheumatoid arthritis.
I taught myself to knit and crochet before my diagnosis, while working my original career as a mechanic. I soon dropped knitting and discovered I had a knack for designing and writing my own crochet patterns. When the stiffness and swelling took over so I couldn't turn wrenches anymore, I found I could still hold my hook and yarn. Days spent stitching and wondering what I would do with my life developed into this blog.
Although I do occasionally sell a pattern, I love providing them here for free. You are more than welcome to sell the items you create from my patterns, and I give permission to use photos from projects if you are sharing my work online - But do not copy the entire blog post! And please, always give credit to the designer. You may not use my photos for items you are selling.
You can follow me or get in touch on Google (+JennyGuldin), Facebook (Crochet is the Way), and Pinterest (Crochet is the Way). Also, join the Crochet is the Way community on Google+ to share your own projects! For any other inquiries, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for finding your way to my little yarn-filled corner of the internet! I hope you enjoy what you find here. And as always,
