Hi Morolape! Please tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi! My name is Morolape (moe-row-lah-pay) and Iโ€™m the maker/designer at The Purple Crochet.

When did you start your crafting journey?
I started crafting when I was about 7 years old. A friend at primary school taught me how to crochet. I would pick up a hook every once in a while. It took a year to complete a scarf! :joy: Fast forward to when I was pregnant with my first baby 9 years ago, I picked up the hook and I havenโ€™t put it down since! :smile: I learned Tunisian Crochet in 2020 and it has been such an amazing experience!

Thatโ€™s amazing! So what is your favorite craft, and why?
My favorite craft is Tunisian Crochet. I love the patterns and textures that I see with Tunisian!

Can you recommend a short Tunisian Crochet project?
My Bethel Earwarmer pattern. :point_down:

Cool! What are you working on right now?
Right now, Iโ€™m working on sending my newest pattern out to testers. Itโ€™s called the Bethel Beanie, a Tunisian in the Round pattern.

Thatโ€™s exciting. Do you have a design that youโ€™re particularly proud of?
I am most proud of my beanie pattern.

Any favorite book or song youโ€™d like to recommend?
My favorite book would be the Tunisian Crochet workshop book by Michelle Robinson.

And finally - whatโ€™s your favorite Ribblr feature?
Iโ€™m still learning all the bells and whistles on Ribblr but my favorite so far is Ribblr ePattern - the interactive pattern.

Thank you so much for sharing Morolape! We love your designs and canโ€™t wait to see your new beanie! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Really looking forward to seeing your new beanie pattern. I havenโ€™t done Tunisian crochet for a while so a smaller project that will set me up for Winter would be great! :heart:
