About the Author
A Washington native who crochets, knits, and sews, Darla Sims says she prefers to design exclusively for crochet. "For some of my crochet pattern stitches, I'm able to get a look similar to knitting," she says. "It's a matter of thinking differently about where to place the hook while crocheting. You can create the seemingly impossible when you keep looking at things in different ways." Garments and baby items are her design favorites, but she has found herself increasingly intrigued by crochet stitches.
