Hi, I’m Zoё, I’m a crochet designer, teacher and yarn addict.  I’ve been making things with wool for as long as I can remember.  My nan was a knitter and my gran was a crocheter, and they taught me when I was small.  In recent years, my lovely mother-in-law has re-taught me how to crochet, and now I just can’t stop.  I live in Yorkshire and spend most of the time I’m not at my day job holed up in my study with all my lovely wool, sketching or hooking up new designs as often as I get the chance.

  1. I love your Frank The Festival Donkey pattern in the new issue (17) of Crochet Now! – It’s advertised as a pinata but I don’t see any instructions about stuffing with candy or how to get the candy out – am I missing something or is it just really a toy?


    • I’m really glad you like the design, he’s one of my favourites! I’ve designed him as a regular stuffed toy; I suppose you could modify him by adding fastenings (buttons perhaps? ) to the belly panel at the end rather than sewing it closed, then you could put some sweets inside. I’d love to see what you do with this pattern!
