Rosey Grier was a professional football player who was also known for publishing a book in the 1970s called Needlepoint for Men.
I’ve mentioned Mark Dittrick before because he’s the author of a vintage crochet book I adore, Hard Crochet. I thought it would be fun to explore a little bit more about this designer for my series on 1970s crochet artists.
Many men do crochet, and have for a long time, and quite a few are talented artists and designers in their own right. Here are 20.
Mandy Greer is a really cool fiber artist who incorporates crochet into her work. She has the help of a crafty community and the husband who taught her how to crochet.
Today’s male crochet artists that I want to tell you more about is Doug Guildford.
Mike Rivera can crochet a cap in about an hour and is happy to teach young children how to do it as well!
