Karen Barnes

I am the designer of Leisure Arts “Sportacular Afghans”; I am als published in Simply Crochet, Crochet World and Crochet! magazines.

I am an avid yarn-lover who has been crocheting since the age of 12, taught by her grandmother and later inspired by pattern stitch encyclopedias.

I crochet almost daily for my children, coworkers, family and craft shows.  I love yarn! I can walk into any yarn store and have a huge smile on my face.
