Creation Crochet

Lorene Eppolite

Creation Crochet is the featured subject, Lorene Eppolite was kind enough to join Marly to let us know what’s going on with her!

Lorene is relatively new to crocheting, only 5 years ago, taught herself. She sold finished products and was approached for patterns. Two years ago, she started her website Cre8tion Crochet https://www.cre8tioncrochet.com/ and publishing patterns. At this point her finished products have completely gone away!


She works from home now (raising her kids) and finds most of her designing happens at night.  Her best designs and most popular are those that she just picked up a crochet hook and yarn and went to work as the idea strikes her.

The Owl Stuffy

Writing the patterns is still a challenge for her, but one that she meets well as is obvious by the quantity of her patterns listed in Ravelry and even as her skills improve finds a need to go back and tweak the older ones.

The Owl Stuffy has become the most favorited in Ravelry. Toys aren’t generally her favorite but these fun little guys are cheerful and bright. Perhaps that’s why they are so popular, with their friendly expressions! Well, the fact that it’s a free pattern can’t hurt either…

Lorene has become the Crochet Designer of choice for A Darn Good Yarn. Her patterns so far include hats and scarves made of their wonderful recycled fibers. Follow that website, too, to see the new patterns as Lorene creates and they are published there.

One thing that was cool to hear on the program is that Lorene considers’ Laurinda Redding a mentor. Coincidentally, Laurinda will be a guest on the Yarn Thing podcast with Marly Bird later this month!
