"I really love traditional Mexican tiles and often look at woven fabrics, embroidery and crewel work for design inspiration. For a long time I have wanted to design a project using a repeated diamond pattern like those found on rugs and wraps from Mexico.
I have created a flower motif to sit at the centre of this design to echo floral embroidery; I think the use of surface crochet slip stitches enhances the idea of hand stitching and I am particularly pleased with the flowers sitting on the edge of the blanket to give it a really unusual border; I thoroughly enjoyed designing this project and I hope you will enjoy making it too!"

Welcome to the world of Janie Crow!
My Great Grandmother, Alice, simply had a love of yarn. As a child I remember watching her arrange crochet granny squares on her lap and making decisions about which colour combinations went together. Her speedy hook and agile fingers fascinated me, but it wasn't until much later on in my life's journey that I also found myself enthralled by, and addicted to, the art of crochet. I guess I finally got to grips with the technicalities of crochet around 15 years ago and over the last decade I have felt confident enough to design projects aimed at the home crafter.
I would love to see crochet recognised as a platform for creativity and so I have made it my mission to seek out pathways that will enable me to reach a wide audience to whom I can demonstrate the versatility and integrity of the craft. I try to highlight the differences between 'home made' and 'hand made' and challenge the often derogatory and ageist image of those (mostly women) who choose to design and craft with yarn. I hope that by doing so I am validating the skills of so many others.
