Claudine Powley

Hi I'm Claudine

I live in Cornwall by the sea with my husband and two children. I enjoy travelling, camping and exploring with my family as well as crochet, knitting and sewing.

When not crocheting I can be found running on the Cornish coast path, sea dipping with my friends or hanging out at a skatepark with my husband and children.

After a brief background in fashion design and a ten-year career as a secondary school Textiles teacher, I now work as a freelance independent crochet and knit designer. 

I have run workshops and had designs published in several craft and crochet magazines. I love to make one-off items of clothing, am fond of bright colours, and never go anywhere without a crochet project in my bag!

People often ask me...

People often ask me what is my favourite pattern I've written. It changes all the time, but if you ask me right now I'd say this vest. I made the first version on holiday in Thailand and its my favourite because its quick to make, fun to wear and you can easily experiment with different trims too.

It's a staple in my summer wardrobe!
