A little bit about me -  I have been crocheting daily for about 3 years but learned to crochet when I was 9. I picked the hook back up about 20 years ago, crocheting once in a while. More recently I started crocheting for meditation and serenity! I hope crochet brings you as much as it does me!

Hello! My name is Christine and I am the maker at Rows.of.Crochet! I'm happy you are here.  Crochet is my zen, it brings me peace and calm. I am a pattern designer, tester and yarn lover, a collector of hooks. I love all things crochet.  This page will hopefully be used to send monthly newsletters about patterns I've designed, patterns I am working on and other designers that have inspired me.
