Dana Rebmann

Dana Rebmann and her twin sister, Deborah Bagley, co-founded www.yarnovations.com in 2012 creating realistic, quirky, and fun crochet, knit and sewing patterns. From 2015-2017 she worked at Interweave helping produce Interweave Crochet magazine and Love of Crochet magazine. 

Prior to crochet, Dana was a card maker and paper crafter. That 20-year love affair with stamping was dropped like a stone when her twin sister introduced her to amigurumi.

When not crocheting, Dana loves to mountain bike and read snarky, fast-paced, well-written fiction.

Pastel Dreams Babyghan

Use up those colored scraps with one of the very first weaving techniques we learn as children – braids! The six strands in each braid are knotted at the ends while extended single crochet stitches around the braided yarn lock the bright colors to the blanket and create a faux spike stitch that fuses the colors together seamlessly.

Scotty Lapghan

This rich and bold lapghan is surprisingly easy to make and is a great project to work on while on the go.
