For today’s 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards I’d like to give an award for the best crochet design information. This award goes to Doris Chan.

About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award

Many people are interested in becoming crochet designers. Perhaps even more are interested in knowing enough about crochet design information that they can modify, adapt and personalize the crochet patterns that they are using. When crochet designers offer tips and insight into the crochet design process they facilitate this and that’s something worth a reward!

Why the Winning Blog Won

Doris Chan is a terrific crochet designer who has been mentioned many times on this blog; for example, her designs can be found in my posts on the best crochet shawl pattern designers and 100 unique crochet skirts. Doris shares crochet design tips and information based on her own experiences. For example, she shared her idea to alter a previous design in this post. Her ideas are readable and clear and unique and informative.

This Blog Previously Won …

Although I have been following Doris Chan’s work for a long time, this is the first time that I’ve included her in my end-of-the-year awesome crochet blog awards. Each year there are only about thirty people who get awards even though there are literally hundreds of crochet bloggers so I don’t get to everyone but I’m happy to be able to include her great work this time around.

Also About This Great Crochet Blog

In addition to her great crochet design information, Doris Chan offers us a lot of insight into her own life as a crocheter. She shared a lot of info on the CGOA experience this year, for example. She also shares ideas such as what the best gifts are for crocheters and other things that you’d probably only think about if you’d made crochet a serious part of your life like we have!
