Hi There Crystal!!!
I’m Crystal, the maker behind Hook’N’Tech! I have been crocheting for about 20 years – what started off as a fun craft with my grandmother turned into more the past couple of years. During my college years I made many amigurumi dolls (mostly pigs come to mind) for family and I still have the very first ami I made, which looks nothing like the ones I’ve made in the past couple years. Over the years I’ve grown in my craft and expanded to making blankets, hats, and even other wearables. I’ve spent the better part of the last year pattern testing for many fellow makers, observing and learning the creating part of the crochet world – and most recently I’ve begun to create my own patterns. The Alula Beanie (or Slouchy Thick And Quick Beanie) is my first pattern ever and I’m so excited to share it with the Yarn Punk community!
