Peppergoose patterns contain the how and the why!
Peppergoose patterns are data-rich, with bonus resources for pattern support on my blog page. A few key crochet tutorial links are next to this text so they are easy for all crafters to find.
Your purchased PDF download includes a description of the pattern overview/construction, tips on how to customise your fit if it's a garment, a schematic, lots of WIP photos to help you check you are on the right track - and the comprehensive written instructions are often accompanied by stitch charts.
I include lots of explanatory notes along the way so you can advance your crochet skills as well as make something beautiful!
Peppergoose evolved as a creative outlet for my love of crochet and textiles. It's a nonsense name of whimsy as I started this journey simply finding joy in working with luxurious yarns. Along the way I found myself striving to make modern interpretations of crochet fashion and began to share my knowledge with others.

Crochet is my passion, but knitting gets a look-in too for designing garments and accessories from my home in the hills of Perth, Western Australia.
I am inspired by macro details of things I see in everyday life and methods of garment construction. A design element might pop into my head, then I marry that feature detail with a method of construction as a puzzle to solve. I like additive construction methods and they are often not conventional.
My blog shares information about my patterns and crochet techniques in general. I hope to encourage people to tackle crochet garments and offer technical crochet geekery via my blog to help makers of my patterns, as well as a pattern support group called Pepper-Gaggle on Facebook.
