I am very excited about today's designer! Heather Anderson has a great sense of style in her crocheting. I know when I've hit on a great designer because in my mind's eye I can see a friend or family member wearing their designs. The first design on The Unraveled Mitten, "The double Waffle Stitch", jumped out as a perfect texture for a man's scarf. I knew right away that I HAD to write about The Unraveled Mitten for today's blog.
In my opinion, the beauty of Heather Anderson's designs is in the texture. For me, a unique texture and a good blend of color is really what gets my juices flowing, especially in Fall months as we prepare for Winter. (The Anderson family lives in a climate not unlike the Northern Adirondacks) Apparently many others feel as I do about Heather Anderson's work as she has 1.8k likes on her Facebook page. That's a lot of people showing her some love!
I love tutorials. Even after all these years of crocheting (WAY over 10 LOL) I still like to see picture tutorials to learn new stitches or crocheting skills. When choosing an indy artist for today's blog I wanted to choose someone who had tutorials on unique stitches available. The really exciting thing is that Heather Anderson created tutorials for the following stitches I'd not seen to the date of this writing!
I am always on the lookout for great patterns to donate to charity. Being the volunteer coordinator of Northern Adirondack Hats for Hope, it stands to reason that I would be looking for warm hat, scarf, cowl patterns. Heather Anderson contributes some great hats to our collection. (printable instructions can be purchased from Ravelry)
Most of my Maker friends are asked at some time or another to make a baby or kids project. The Unraveled Mitten offers a few super cute patterns for babies and kids.
Heather Anderson is well on her way to becoming one of the top crochet artists on the web. I hope you'll check out her designs this afternoon as time allows. Looking to connect with Heather Anderson? You can find all her social networking information and email here: Don't forget to drop Heather a note if you have found her patterns useful or have a question! Thanks to The Unraveled Mitten for the great patterns!
