Meet Your Teacher: Heidi

Meet Heidi: Newlywed, Art Director, and Avid Crocheter. Heidi loves color, and she loves using colorful yarns to crochet blankets for her friends and family. Heidi teaches our online course on our Crochet Beginner Blanket (pattern available for free, here). We thought you’d might like to know a bit more about her, so I asked her some questions, below!


What’s your favorite item to knit/crochet?

BLANKETS FOREVER!!! I like simple shapes which require no brain power or fancy shaping. This allows me to devote all my intellectual power to learning new stitches or creating glorious color combinations.

What is your favorite source of crochet patterns?

Are you currently working on a project right now? What is it?

Take a wild guess … a blanket! I’m working on a blue & purple rainbow blanket and a cowl (which is basically like a blanket around one’s neck).

Do you do any other crafts, besides knitting/crochet?

I love painting and decorating.

What is your favorite Knit Picks yarn, and why?

My favorite yarn changes with the seasons and whatever my current projects. Right now, I am loving our 100% merino wool single-ply Preciosa. I made an enormous (can you guess … ?) blanket out of it and it’s divinely soft. It almost feels like you’re snuggling under clouds!
