Drone Pattern

This pattern was made for a video project as part of my summer video arts class. When I eventually get to filming, I’ll be sure to add a link. I’ve been interested in drones, uav, for a while after hearing about them in the news a lot lately. In particular I was intrigued by the … Continue reading

Thermostat Crochet Pattern

Thermostat Crochet Pattern

  Here is another hallway inspired piece. There are two thermostats in the hallway I am mirroring, so I decided to knock these out real quick.

Nose Pattern

Nose Pattern

Made this piece for a site specific yarn bombing. It was a very spur of the moment thing, so I can’t say I can give the best directions to make it yourself, but I’ll try. You’ll need some scrap yarn. It really doesn’t take a lot. This piece is made in the round so that … Continue reading

Vine Crochet Pattern

Just grab some scrap yarn and a hook that matches and start chaining. I’d chain about … Continue reading
