Here is a bit about the designer, herself…
Hi, I’m Dania Olsen. 1975 I was born in the beautiful city of Hamburg, Germany. That’s the second largest city in Germany.
I learned to crochet at an early age (I think around 6 years), and as many of us, I learned it from my grandmother, who was very passionate about crochet. I like to think back to all the hats she made for my brother and me, and that I hated to wear anything on my head. That still hasn’t changed today…
At the second year of elementary school we got a class that was called “handicrafts”, and we got to work on cross stitching, knitting, crochet, working with silver wire and pliers and so on. Guess who got a “very good” for her crochet potholders? Now I was truly hooked. I made little garments for my dolls and a good few potholders for the whole family. I took a break with crafts as I began to work, but about ten years ago I discovered crochet again as a way to unwind after a ten-hour-day at the office.
Up to now I’m largely making shawls, hats, scarfs, coasters, tablecloths, doilies, a few amigurumi and I have three unfinished afghans, which are waiting for my attention again. I admire patterns that are made of fillet crochet, especially from Nancys Nice Knots Of Crochet and Tejiendo Perú, you may see it in my pattern <3.
Long ago my mother tried to teach me knitting, but that skill was beyond my eye-hand-coordination and I gave up. Last year I got courageous and bought a set of needles to learn again, after I saw the beautiful knitted creations of Canadutch. But I’m still scared of these needles…
I’m truly excited to be part of a CAL, and I sincerely hope you will enjoy working from my first pattern.
