Loess Hills Creative Crochet - having fun with yarn and hooks

About Us

The Loess Hills Creative Crochet studio is located near the beautiful loess hills of Iowa just a few miles north of Council Bluffs,.

The studio came into being in 2009 when I wasn't able to find an Aran style afghan that could be crocheted in one piece, so I decided to design my own, and I haven't stopped.

That first design is called Stacy's Aran Afghan. And the pattern is now availalbe for sale. Just click on the "Patterns" tab to purchase this pattern and more of my designs.

I hope you will return often to see what is happening with yarn and hooks at Loess Hills Creative Crochet

In addition to designing, I also teach crochet. I earned a Masters Degree in Adult Education from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa which gives me a unique understanding about how people learn. I learned crochet basics from my dear mother and have been crocheting ever since. After completing a program of study I received my crochet teaching certification through the Craft Yarn Council of America.

I am a professional member of the Crochet Guild of America.

My first published design in a crochet magazine is shown below. It was published in the Winter 2011 issue of Quick and Easy Crochet Magazine, If you saw it, I hope you made it.

You can also find me in my Ravelry Store under the designer name of Mary Riley Hunt.

My Etsy store is called lhcreativecrochet
