We are delighted and very excited to welcome a new Blogstar to the fold to kick off 2020 – we know you are going to love her work. Emily Littlefair - Headshot Emily Littlefair is also known as The Loopy Stitch on social media, where she explores her love for crochet from the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. She published her first crochet book in 2017 called ‘Round and Round the Crochet Hook’ but learnt to crochet a chain stitch when she was only 11 years old. Learning from books and YouTube videos she still loves to try out new techniques and stitches to bring into her designs. [gallery ids="2114,2112" type="rectangular"] Emily finds inspiration all around: “I see possibilities for crochet everywhere I look. I see shapes and patterns in nature, architecture, anything really. An idea can pop into my head at any time. When I am designing patterns, I tend not to plan things and let the hook and yarn take over.” Screenshot 2020-01-10 at 15.34.27Her eye for colour is refreshing and one of her most popular designs ‘Connie’s Ray of Hope’, perfectly captures this. The round wall hanging was designed in memory of Connie Johnson (a fellow Australian) to raise awareness of breast cancer. 21731844_1414167935299782_8697054217141972399_o“We have been fans of Emily’s work for quite a while and are thrilled that she has agreed to become one of our Blogstars.  We can’t wait to work with her and bring more of her designs to Stylecraft crocheters,” says Annabelle Hill, our Sales and Marketing Director.
