Crochet Patterns by Vanessa Smith

Hooked on sunshine is my crochet patterns and cals site, the name comes from my little boys nickname – cook-a-lulu sunshine, so wherever you see sunshine in my work – that’s for him. I have always considered myself a creative soul – delving into many crafts – mosaic, painting, jewellery designs, embroidery and bead-work. Crochet, however, is what i am most passionate about and having started it through charity work, I am now in love with its versatility, from the cutest toy, an item of clothing through to something beautiful for your home.

I tend to design around a colour rather than drawing inspiration from things around me. I am a total colour junkie and the colour inspiration section of my blog will give you an idea of how this process unfolds for me. So grab a ball of yarnie yumminess and lets go on a colourful adventure together.
