It’s time for April's Designer Showcase! Once a month have one of my favorite designers share a bit about themselves, and then I follow it up by sharing my 5 favorite free patterns that they’ve designed! This month I’m excited to have Jennifer Dickerson, blogger, designer, and all around super sweet lady, from Fiber Flux! While she is perhaps best known for her scarves and cowls, she's got fantastic patterns in a variety of categories. But first, let's hear from Jennifer.
Hi there Moogly fans! My name is Jennifer Dickerson and I am the designer and blogger over at Fiber Flux.
I am married to my best friend and the Mom of two lovely kids. For as long as I can remember, I have always been a maker of things, from making and selling jewelry as a young child, then later working as a visual artist, creating large abstract paintings and showing my work in local galleries.
When I became a mother, I wanted to make a blanket for my new arrival, so I learned a few basic stitches and was quite proud of myself. From there, I couldn't stop creating yarny goodness and began writing and sharing patterns. Fiber Flux has grown and evolved creatively since its beginning and has cultivated a wonderful community of loyal readers.
Fiber Flux today has over 125 free crochet and knitting patterns, and my aim is to create designs that are both fun and easy with clear instruction. There are lots of tutorials too for those who are learning or wish to brush up on their skills. Be sure to stop by and check it out, I am adding new and fun projects almost every day.
A very special thanks to Tamara for this fun feature!
