ADVANCE YOUR

CROCHET SKILLS

Peppergoose patterns contain the how and the why!

Many of my patterns are intended for intermediate to advanced crocheters who are looking for a challenge, so I include a lot of explanatory notes along the way so you can advance your crochet skills as well as make something beautiful. My focus is crochet fashion - I design modern crochet clothes, accessories and handbags.

 

Peppergoose patterns are data-rich, with links to support blog posts here on my website. 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.

Peppergoose evolved as a creative outlet for my love of crochet and textiles, and subsequently became therapy for my soul.  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.

I design crocheted garments and accessories from my home in the hills of Perth, Western Australia where I live with my husband and pets Bruce, Subi and Pax.

 

Crochet design has become a bit of an obsession particularly crochet fashion! I am inspired by macro details and methods of garment construction.  Snippets of things I see every day might pop into my head as a design element, then I marry that design element or feature detail with a method of construction by thinking it through in my head as a puzzle to solve.  I like additive construction methods and they are often not conventional.  

 I sell self-published patterns in my Ravelry Store & Etsy Store, and am a regular contributor to both Simply Crochet Magazine and Scheepjes pattern publications.  I collaborate with Scheepjes as a Scheepjes Blogger since 2019 and I am fortunate they lend yarn support to my design process.

On my blog here on this website I share information about my patterns and crochet techniques in general.  I needed to create a resource for makers tackling my patterns.  I hope to encourage people to come along on my crochet journey where I sometimes use unusual construction methods by providing a bit of extra help.
