My name is Amanda Perkins and I am an obsessive crochet designer and author.
Crochet is part of my being - for me it is like breathing. I spend most of my waking life with a hook in my hand and a head full of designs. My aim is to produce new and innovative designs that excite and inspire you. I have been self-publishing and selling blanket patterns on-line for over 10 years and in 2016 my first book Rainbow Crocheted Blankets was published, it contains ten new crochet blanket patterns giving you lots of designs to choose from. My thing is colour, I like to use as many colours in the same blanket as possible. I use lots of different yarns in the same design, which means creating a exact copy is impossible to reproduce, however you will be creating your own unique personal masterpiece. I am really pleased that Deramores have allowed me to create colour collections and kits that take some of the stress out of choosing colours.
All of my designs are made using simple crochet techniques and should be do-able for everyone from ambitious beginners to experts. My patterns include written (in both UK & US terms) & charted motif instructions, step by step construction charts together with detailed colour charts and keys which explain clearly which colours and combinations to use. If you can make a granny square, with a little bit of concentration you should be able to make my blankets.
