Aki of KnitPurlHook is knitter and crocheter who loves to share what she makes with others. She taught herself both crafts using a combination of blogs, online tutorials and YouTube craft videos. You can find her under KnitPurlHook on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Ravelry. She also has a craft blog, where she shares that she loves “trying different patterns and imagining how to can be turned into wall art or home decor”. Her house is a bit like a gallery or museum of crochet – such a pleasure to look at all she’s making!
