Designer Bio’s-

While we are waiting for the big day of the CAL starting let’s get to know the designers in this Gourdgious CAL and all their dets! Make sure to check out all of their things!

The CrochetWizzard- Cydnee Hepworth

Cydnee has been designing since 2019. Her first design was an Easter set and things have just grown from there! She designs to create cute toys for her adorable sons that she loves with all her heart! She is working to continue to grow her business. One way she is growing her business is by hosting fun CAL’s like this one! She hopes that one day she can support her family with her crochet.

Her design is Hugsy from the pattern Hugsy and Hugset! These little cuties are a tribute to a close friend and to a time of my life that is incredibly important to me. I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ and a friend and I each had a penguin plush that was named Hugsy and Hugset and I wanted to make a crocheted version of them. I think they turned out well! He has wonderful no-sew features.

Coco Knitted Creations- Carolann Rutkowski

Carolann learned to knit in 2016 and to crochet during the pandemic in 2020. That is when she fell in love with amis and started her crochet design business. This art is her passion and her crochet business is a dream come true. Every purchase makes a huge difference and she is grateful for every single one.

Her design is Penny the Polar Bear. Penny’s head and body are all one piece, so there’s no stress about sewing the head onto the body! Yay!!

Boy Mom Crochet Life- Darcy Hampton

She is the boy’s mom behind Boy Mom Crochet Life. She loves to make boy tested and approved designs to help kids use their imaginations and PLAY!

This cuddly puffin works up quickly and then he’s ready to accompany you on all of your Arctic adventures- real or pretend! He’s also a good pattern for practicing with sewn on eyes if you’ve never tried them before- it’s how they look as close to a real puffin as possible!
