Welcome to Crochetbury! I am crochet designer, Lisa van Klaveren. I am an American, but am married to a Kiwi and have been living in New Zealand since 2006. I'm a stay at home mum to our daughter, Holland. She inspires and models many of my designs. All my patterns are written in standard American terms. I began designing officially while attending university and have published several baby afghan (rug!) patterns in various American crochet magazines. I have a new baby shoe book which has just come out with Annie's Attic and have several patterns selling on e-patternscentral.
I do accept custom orders as I have time, so feel free to contact me for a quote if you'd like a custom item.
