Susan Heyn


Susan Heyn is a left-handed crocheter, and she first started when she was sick in bed at age 6. Her mom, also a left-handed crocheter, taught her the basics and she's been "hooked" ever since. Susan owned a small craft shop for a long time but closed it over a year ago to focus on designing, and she's been self-publishing on Ravelry for several years.

After attending her first CGOA conference in Manchester, NH in July 2014, she sold her first design to Red Heart yarns. Since then, Susan has sold a few other designs to Red Heart, one to Mainly Crochet and also to I Like Crochet. Some of her favorite things to crochet and design are holiday items and afghans, and she loves using textured stitches such as popcorns and post stitches in many of her designs.

Mosaic Crochet Towel Toppers and Dishcloths Set

It may look intricate, but this pattern’s reversible design is easy to make! The dishcloth’s reversible design is created by working the long-dropped double crochets around the post of the stitch instead of working into the stitch. Make a second towel topper and dishcloth by working into the front posts instead of through both loops, and before you know it, you’ll have the perfect kitchen set!
