About Fair Crochet
I'm Jennifer, and this is my Amazon.com store. I crochet all the items for sale here in my home in a small town called Stouffville, just north of Toronto (in Ontario, Canada), and I've been selling online since 1999. When you buy from me, you're helping an independant craftsperson make a living - thank you for your support!
Sometimes I start with a pattern that I like and search for a yarn that fits. Is it soft enough for a scarf or a baby blanket? Is it sturdy enough for a floor mat? But my favourite thing is to start with a yarn that speaks to me because of the colour or texture - a visit to a specialty yarn store is a treat, but a danger to the wallet! Once I've settled on the pattern and the yarn I set to work crocheting a prototype, tweaking the pattern until the final product is exactly perfect and the design is ready to list. Only after an order is placed do the yarn and hook come out again to produce a masterpiece just for you! Crochet is worked with a single hook by making loops and drawing the yarn through. There are a few basic stitches that can be combined in many ways to make beautiful patterns. When you buy a handmade crochet item you can be sure that hours of work - sometimes many, many hours - have gone into creating a unique piece of art for you to enjoy.
