I’m Julie Cassidy Yeager and I have been crocheting and knitting since age 8, taught by my Irish mom in the Bronx, New York. I’m currently obsessed with crocheted afghan squares and blanket designs – always a new idea on the hook. I like to make my patterns easy to read and fun to stitch.
I started designing after winning a contest on the Crochet Me website in 2010 where they asked for reader submissions for crochet squares for their Chain Reaction Afghan Project. Three of my submissions were published in Interweave Crochet Magazine. After that I started publishing my patterns on Ravelry and with my yearly Mystery’Ghans I reach new fans every year. You'll find my blog and details of my projects on my website www.julieyeagerdesigns.com.
When I’m not crocheting, I’m saving lives as a Registered Nurse and having fun with my awesome teenage daughter.
Thankful to be living my dream as a crochet designer – thanks to all my wonderful fans.
