The 2014 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month continues today with a visit to crochet designer Stacy Vaka.
Crochet Kitten is run by Stacy Vaka (The Animator’s Wife) and her cat Selena K (the Crochet Kitten). Together they are bent on world crochet domination and have published several free tutorials to help spread their love of the craft.
As far as patterns go, Crochet Kitten embraces all things steampunk, geeky, and fun. The Animator’s Wife is both a belly dancer and a mother, so many of her designs are inspired by those roles. While many of the patterns are for sale, all of Crochet Kitten’s patterns for children and babies will always and forever be offered for free

Keep up with Stacy online:
Stacy is a professional member of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America), and she has this to share about her CGOA experience:
What I love about CGOA is feeling like I get the insider’s scoop on the latest and greatest that’s happening in crochet. If it’s a new technique or trend, you can be sure you’ll hear about it through CGOA before you hear about it anywhere else.
We’d like to highlight two of Stacy’s designs, just to give you a sneak peek at her work.
Dolled Up Blouse: Inspired by 50s pin-up fashions, this sweater is deceptively simple and sized from XS to 5X for everyone to enjoy. It is worked in one piece and has simple bust shaping for the perfect fit.$6.
Baby’s First Belly Dance Costume: The star of this pattern is the crochet tutu, which can be used by dancers of all types. Sized from Preemie to 24 months. Free.
