I live in Ireland where I teach crochet workshops and obsess about crochet and colour. I have been published in Mollie Makes magazine, and have contributed patterns to many crochet books, including Boho Crochet and Crochet Therapy by Bethsan Corkhill. My first book was published in late 2016 - in the US by Larkcrafts and in the UK by Search Press Crochet Yourself Calm: 50 Motifs & 15 Projects for Mindful Relaxation.  

I document my crochet work here on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/anniedesigncrochet/

Foliage in the Woods Wrap

The stitch design in this scarf is reminiscent of ripples of light through the trees in winter along the Scottish countryside. As Catherine Earnshaw says, “My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I’m well aware, as winter changes the trees.”
