Jane Crowfoot has always had a love for yarn and all things crafty and attributes her 'crochet gene' to her Great Grandmother, Alice, who was seldom seen without a crochet hook in her hand and a few granny squares upon her lap.
Jane was taught to knit as a child and after showing a flair for art throughout school she decided to do a foundation course in art and design before going on to do a degree in textile design at Winchester School of Art, specializing in constructed textiles. Jane has worked as a freelance designer and design consultant for the past 15 years and has worked closely with both Debbie Bliss and Rowan Yarns.
Although an accomplished knitter, Jane has a passion for crochet, which is currently seeing a huge upsurge in popularity across the world. Jane runs a successful crochet club, which provides participants with the chance to complete an exclusive throw/blanket project over the course of 6 months. Jane's design theme for the project is not a complete mystery as she releases teaser images in advance of the start of the project. Members live across the globe and Jane provides an on line dedicated blog which includes tips & techniques and step by step images to aid crocheters along the way.
Jane is the author of 5 titles of which Kaleidoscope is the most recent, past titles are: Finishing Techniques for Handknitters, Two Stitch Knits, The Ultimate Crochet Bible and Homespun Vintage. Jane has a range of designs and accessories on her web site and on ravelry. You can also 'like' her company page on facebook and follow her on Twitter.
