In Simply Crochet issue 58 you’ll find our new Hook to Hook designer challenge, and this issue it features designs by Erinna Lee and Jennifer Santos. They were both given six shades of Designer Yarns Choice Fruity DK yarn and challenged to design us some super-cute amigurumi.
Aussie designer Erinna Lee has a dreamy pastel outlook that we can’t get enough of. She told us: “My design aesthetic is kawaii! I love making things that exude cuteness. I’m still trapped in a child’s imagination. The one thing I always hope to achieve is that my finished creations will evoke some sort of an emotional reaction.”
Erinna shares her cute creations on Instagram as @littleaquagirl and sells her patterns in an Etsy shop she runs with her mother (and fellow designer) at www.bubblesandbongo.etsy.com
Sweden-based stitcher Jennifer Santos is the face behind Super Cute Design. She says: “Crochet enables me to live out my creativity. I love that you can have an idea of what you want to make and then be able to create it with just a hook and some yarn. As I have a huge sweet tooth and am such a sucker for cute and colourful stuff, I make lots of yummy rainbow things with happy faces.”
You can find Jennifer’s patterns at www. supercutedesignshop.etsy.com. She shares her makes on Instagram as @supercutedesign
