The 2014 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month continues today with a visit to crochet designer Lindsey Stephens of Poetry in Yarn.

She has her own design line, Poetry in Yarn, and has published patterns in Crochet World magazine, Koigu magazine, the book Curvy Girl Crochet, and other publications.

Lindsey is a professional member of CGOA, and she has this to share about her CGOA experience:
I love being able to connect with other crocheters across the US and across the world! We’re such an awesome group. As a professional, CGOA was invaluable in helping me make connections and learn the ropes of the business.
We’d like to highlight two of Phyllis’s designs, just to give you a sneak peek at her work.
Chain of Hearts Scarf: Drape yourself in luxury with a silken scarf adorned in delicate heart motifs. Worked in three separate panels which are joined seamlessly together, this is an accessory that promises to be as interesting to crochet as it is to wear, and looks equally beautiful showcasing both solid and variegated yarns. Available for $4.95.
Caroline Scarf: Delicate and lacy, this side-to-side scarf is wonderfully multipurpose! With wearable options as a neckerchief, small shoulder shawl, hair kerchief or even a swimsuit coverup, Caroline is perfect for gift giving -let the recipient style it in their own unique way! The chic, minimalistic diamond motif is not only easy to work but right on trend, and due to the slight bias of the stitch pattern, lends a slightly asymmetrical look to the finished piece. Caroline will be as fun to make as to wear. Kit available for $17.
