Holiday Traditions Wreath
Lynn Wasylkevych

I started crocheting at the age of 7 with my maternal grandmother. She was always doing some sort of needlework and I would beg her to teach me to crochet. When I was 13 years old, my favorite teacher taught a group of us how to make beautiful granny squares and afghans.

I worked in the field of interior design over a period of two decades, and have always loved fibers and textiles. Transitioning from one area of design into another was challenging but very positive.

My first opportunity to enter into the world of designing for publications was at the Crochet Guild of America conference four years ago. I attended the Designer "Meet and Greet", where Carol Alexander, Annie's executive crochet editor, took notice of one of my designs. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to have my Citrus Blossom Purse published in the summer 2013 issue of Crochet! magazine.

I especially love crocheting all kinds of botanical motifs and elements. Experimenting with Eastern and Western European styles of crochet is another passion; I think it has opened up a whole new world of crochet design. Crochet offers an endless opportunity to learn and try new things, and I look forward to the journey.
