Welcome to DesigningVashti.com. I’m Vashti Braha (wearing Fishlips Shrug at a yarn conference). Need help? Find a broken link? Email me directly. You’re at the home base for my in-depth crochet classes, intrepid newsletter, long-running blog, and crochet shop of over 100 items–just scroll down this page. (Please note that the shop’s former URL was www.shop.designingvashti.com/. Its permanent URL is now https://www.designingvashti.com/.)

In the shop you’ll find: Doris Chan’s exclusive DJC pattern line, my own indie patterns, the complete line of Jelly Yarn®, and crochet hooks of several sizes, brands, lengths, and combinations. We always order direct from the manufacturer, person to person. It’s always nice to connect, plus it also safeguards against counterfeits and inflated costs. As always, shipping is free in the USA. Shopping is certified secure.

I’ve been creating new crochet stitches, techniques, patterns, and classes over the past year or two! I’m getting ready to share it all in a deluxe rollout so stay tuned. I haven’t gone anywhere, I’m just very busy behind the scenes.
