Designer Spotlight

Michele Wilcox

I learned to knit around age 5 from my wonderful grandmother. I immediately fell in love with knitting and made many scarves full of dropped stitches! Over the years I continued to knit, but it was not until the birth of my second child that I taught myself to crochet. My first try was an adorable puppy pattern and, not realizing it, I crocheted the whole thing inside out! It turned out to be a cute project and I was excited to try more patterns.

I started designing because, growing up, I wanted to be a fashion designer and always loved to draw and paint. Once I started crocheting, I guess it was just meant to be, and now I love what I do. I sold my first design to Annie's Publishing in the early 1980s and now have more than 500 designs that have been published by Annie's, as well as hundreds of additional designs printed by many other companies.

My favorite things to design are toys, afghans, hats, pillows and scarves, but I'm always up for a challenge when a new idea presents itself!
