What Jane Says
"The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one I have used in this blanket, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. It took me a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; initially I came up with loads of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and the outcome can be so easy to make! The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a Granny Hexagon pattern, but I have made a few changes to come up with the curved design that tessellates.
I have used what I think is a really fun idea in relation to the way this shawl is made, so please read on to find out about the surprise technique in this design, which will enable you to produce a truly distinctive and beautiful blanket."

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.
