About the Designer

Hello, I’m Ashley designer behind Through The Loop Yarn Craft. I am so happy to have the opportunity to share the Katerie Cowl, thank you so much Michelle!

My goal at TTLYC is to design quick and modern crochet patterns so busy crocheters can make more with the time they have!

As a busy mom of seven with a full time job outside of the house I know how precious the crochet minutes can be. I love having makes that can get done quickly and aim to provide the designs anyone can have time to create!
