Ellen is a professional member of CGOA, and she has this to share about her CGOA experience:
Being a member of the CGOA has opened up so many opportunities for me both personally and professionally. Learning about the industry expanded my crochet skills, exposed me to lovely yarns, and introduced me to life-long friends.
We’d like to highlight two of Ellen’s designs, just to give you a sneak peek at her work.
Zoe’s One-Day Dress: The dress runs small. For best results consider the dimensions and choose the appropriate size for the child. Please note, that not all the colors may be currently available. Please consider your color scheme and the availability before purchasing the pattern. Available for $6 on Ravelry.
Driftwood Cap: Incredible stretch is the defining feature of this hat! Available for $5 on Ravelry.
