Hi! I’m Shelley. I love to design crochet patterns that extend your skills, gently challenging and encouraging you to create crochet wonders. I get a real kick out of seeing folks create beautiful crochet items they thought were beyond their skills. If you can crochet a granny square and you’re willing to learn and have a go, you can make my patterns. I always provide lots of support with links to videos, step by step photos and clear instructions. You can find my patterns here.
I love to design crochet squares and blankets. I really do. Seamless crochet is my thing. You wont find obvious joins or a line up a side of my blocks. I’m pretty pedantic about it. 😉
I have written four crochet books! The first was Granny Square Flair (read all about it here.) It came out 20 July! It has 50 6″ square patterns and some fun projects to make as well. Then came Siren’s Atlas, Beneath the Surface and most recently, Granny Square Academy. You can read more about them all here.
I have written lots of ebooks too full of granny squares of different sizes.
I’m also a mother to 3 and wife to one. I live by the coast in South West Victoria, Australia. I am very lucky!
I can be found in lots of places about the ‘net.
Do you love Instagram like I love Instagram? It’s where you’ll find me most often. My name there is “spincushions”.
Work with me
If you’d like to work with me, I’d love to hear from you. Check out this page for some stuff about who I am and what we could do together.
I used to make felt pincushions. I hand sewed them all and I loved doing it – hence the name ‘Spincushions’, but times change and crochet is my current obsession.
