You’ve dropped in on our 12th day of A Tour through Crochet Country, Crochetville’s blog tour celebrating National Crochet Month 2013. Today we’re visiting crochet designers Pam Daley and Deb Burger.

Pam Daley has self-published over 70 patterns. She has also designed for major yarn suppliers. Pam is also a long-time Crochetville member, a cancer survivor, and currently on hiatus from being a full-time RVer. Her patterns include many adorable baby and child accessories as well as adult accessories, especially those for your hands and feet. If you enjoy fingerless mitts, Pam has several to choose from.

This darling Garden Party Sun Hat is one of Pam’s patterns for children.

Deb Burger is an artist, teacher, and public speaker. She is the author of Crochet 101, and the upcoming book 100 Crochet Appliques, which is scheduled for May 2013. In addition to crochet, Deb also does knitting, quilting, painting, writing, mixed-media collage, and folk singing. Deb says, “I believe in having fun, spreading random beauty and kindness, and encouraging others whenever and wherever possible.”

Deb’s Entrelac Baby Blanket is alive with color!

I always appreciate designs that celebrate the crochet chain. I think Deb’s Bamboo Chains Capelet is a versatile design that you could dress up or down.

  1. Crochet definitely benefits my personal well being….It relaxes me and I get a great sense of accomplishment when I complete a project. I also love to give some of my “output” to friends that appreciate handmade items.

  2. Yes, definitely! Crocheting (I often listen to books at the same time) occupies my thoughts and blocks out whatever I might be worrying about and lets my mind rest from the everyday bustle. Plus I end up with great birthday and Christmas gifts!

  3. I definitely feel that crocheting helps greatly with my emotional and mental well-being. I currently have a job that I dislike and crocheting gives me something positive to look forward to each day instead of the negative feelings that come with my dislike for my job. Crochet is my stress reliever.
