About Tara Cousins
I crocheted my first afghan at 10 years old, and was immediately "hooked". My two children constantly inspire me to develop new and modern designs that are fun to make.
I love all things crochet and experimenting with new pattern design. Bright, bold colors and "picture" patterns are my signature style. I love teaching crochet, too, and all my patterns include step-by-step photos to help you along the way.
As a crochet designer, I have worked on projects with some larger craft publishing companies, in both magazines and crochet books.
I also have a wide range of craft category self-published ebooks and physical books, as well as android apps for knitting and crochet.
I live in Colorado with my husband and two children. When not inside crafting, I'm out enjoying the Rocky Mountains, skiing, hiking and trail running.
