You've wasted hours crocheting projects, only to undo everything because ...

... the project doesn't fit 😓
... your garment looks unfinished and 'handmade' in a not so good way 😬
... you used the wrong yarn so your garment is stiff and uncomfortable to wear 🫠 ...

When all you really want to do is crochet a garment with that 🌟modern crochet look🌟

However, unless you have a simple framework to plan your design with the right drape and measurements …

You’re NOT preparing your crochet project to be wearable or easy to follow!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I'm working on a design right now, and it's coming out exactly as I hoped!" - Mary

"This course has helped me with picking out the right yarn, perfecting my gauge swatch, and how to put my thoughts onto paper. I feel much more confident in making my own crochet garments!" - Nicky

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I think so differently now when it comes to yarn and gauge swatches."

"I honestly loved all the lessons, especially the first one (Gauge). Even though I design and make my own patterns, there is so much I learned just from the first lesson - it was an eye opener." - Victoria

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Loved the course and how well thought out it was."

"You answered all my questions when it came to designing. I loved how you explained everything step-by-step and walked us through a sample project." - Jessica

SURE .. you could ...

Grab your hook and just start crocheting ...

But are you willing to spend time and effort on a project that you might not even be able to finish due to yarn/stitch/gauge/drape/construction issues, let alone be the right size so you can wear it?

Or you could re-crochet your design in multiple sizes to see if your grading works ...

Do you have hundreds of free hours to crochet and the budget to purchase yarn for 10+ different sizes?

Follow other designers crochet patterns ...

Crocheting more patterns won’t make you a confident and capable designer - it’s actually doing the opposite! It makes you reliant on others' patterns and more hesitant to try to design for yourself.

Who is Modern Crochet Design FOR? 💖

You want to design your own crochet patterns!

If you’re committed to learning about crochet design, working to improve your skills and put yourself in the best position to succeed at designing, then you’ll get heaps of value from the course!

You dream of earning money with crochet design

This course is focused solely on learning how to design modern crochet patterns. However, designing is the skill that your earning potential depends on. If your designs aren’t appealing and wearable, no matter what monetisation strategies you use, you’ll struggle to earn an income from crochet. That’s why the design fundamentals are so important!

Who's this course NOT for?

Not willing to put in the time and work to crochet your own designs.

Crochet designing isn’t a perfectly smooth sailing process. You’ll make mistakes, have to frog your patterns or abandon some of them altogether. The course sets you up for a successful design, but you still need to crochet the pattern yourself to create a sample. Crochet is a physical craft! You need to put in the work to solve any issues with your patterns that might pop up.

You’re looking for a magic bullet that will instantly create a pattern without any effort. 

This course is designed to teach you the skills to learn how to design a pattern by yourself. It’s not a magic software that will create a pattern for you.

Modern Crochet Design combines video lessons, workbooks, cheat sheets and templates, to create the ultimate crochet design creation system.

Design the crochet sweater of your dreams!


What crochet skills do I need to take this course? What if I’m not an advanced crocheter? Can a crochet beginner crochet this course?

- As long as you’ve crocheted a garment before (even if it’s just 1!) and can read a crochet pattern, you’ll be able to follow along this course. I started designing just 2 months after picking up a crochet hook, so even if you’re a beginner you can definitely design your own patterns. 😊 In the course, you’ll learn how to start off with simple designs that suit your skill set. 

What if I've never designed a garment before?

- Then Modern Crochet Design is the perfect course for you! You’ll learn the foundational building blocks of crochet designing, so you start off on the right foot to create easy to follow designs with the *Modern Crochet Look*. 

Will I learn everything about crochet designing in this course?

- This course focuses on creating modern crochet garments worked flat. Specifically, the sample design is a sweater crocheted in rows. However, the techniques you learn throughout this course will improve and enhance your crocheting and designing knowledge. Modern Crochet Design doesn’t cover more advanced techniques like colourwork, mosaic crochet and short rows etc. If you’re a beginner designer and a fan of the For The Frills style, you’ll be a great fit!

Is the course content dripped out over time or can I view everything at once?

- Get instant access to the course entire course when you enroll! All the video classes, worksheets, templates and resources are ready and waiting for you.
