Karen Whooley learned to crochet at age 7. She was taught by her Italian "Nonna" (Grandmother) and learned all the stitch names in Italian! Since Nonna didn't know how to read patterns written in English, Karen had to teach herself.
Karen didn't start her career as a designer until 1999. Up until that point she would follow patterns she bought in the store. If something didn't work out to her satisfaction, she would modify it. Then in December of 1998, she met Terry Kimbrough through one of the many crochet lists on the Internet. Terry, who has always been one of Karen's favorite designers, encouraged her to try her hand at designing something. Her first designs were Flower Dishcloths and to her amazement, Annie's Attic liked them! From that point her career took off!
Karen's favorite items to design are Afghans. She works with both yarn and thread but definitely prefers to work with yarn! Baby items and kitchen items are also favorites! Many of her ideas come from the things she sees around her. Nature is one of her biggest triggers for new idea, but she loves to browse the stores to see patterns and fabrics that also give new ideas. Her new goal is to design a doily from scratch!
When her design career started, Karen also opened the doors of Crochet Legacy. Crochet Legacy is a multi-dimensional company. Her hats include, Pattern design, teaching private and group crochet classes, a monthly newsletter and a web site featuring her original patterns.
Karen lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband and her 2 children.Review:
This leaflet ... is a wonderful preview of things to come from this talented designer. -- Terry Kimbrough
