A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour
Want to Chat about the Tour?
Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

Jennifer Pionk, A Crocheted Simplicity
Crochetville is very proud to have designer Jennifer Pionk of A Crocheted Simplicity with us today, March 24, as one of the featured designers on our 2017 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo). If you’d like to know even more about Jennifercheck out our post from last year’s blog tour.
I live in the middle of the woods, along a river in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my husband and our three kids. We also have a grown daughter and three adorable grandbabies. Unlike many others, I do not have a warm, fuzzy story to share with you about how my grandmother taught me to crochet at the young age of five. As a matter of fact, just fiveshort years ago I had absolutely no idea what the difference was between a crochet hook or knitting needles, but I decided to teach myself to crochet and haven’t looked back. Since then I have independently published over 200 original crochet designs and have been published in books and magazines. And during the summer of 2016, I filmed 3 video classes with Annie’s. I love continuously exploring new techniques and putting my own spin on the classics; but most of all, I love sharing my passion for crochet and teaching others.
Tell us about your most popular pattern.
One my my most popular patterns is my “Boho Chic” Mosaic Tote Bag. This is a bag that I designed before one of my trips to a CGOA conference. There were several different techniques that went into the making of this bag, and it was definitely a labor of love, but well worth every stitch (and every end that needed to be woven in from the color work).
I’ll be adding a new free crochet pattern to my blog. I’ll also have a special coupon code set up for my Ravelry patterns. Click the link above to check everything out.
If you’re not familiar with my work already, I’d like to share three of my designs with you.
The Northern Skies Convertible Scarf & Wrap will become a staple in your closet for all seasons. It can be worn several different ways, each producing a different style. Which one will become your favorite?
2. Matterhorn Ski Slouch, $5.00
Inspired by local ski resorts, this unisex hat will be sure to become one of your new favorites! The double-layered stretchy band provides a great fit and extra warmth, making this hat perfect for cold climates. The pattern includes written instructions and a video tutorial.
3. Cascading Cables Afghan, $5.00
Do you love cables?!?! The cables designed for this afghan along with the yarn and hook sizes used make this afghan extremely warm and cozy. Add a bit of style and warmth to your living space with one of your own.
This pattern includes a complete row by row photo tutorial to help along the way!
