• About

Hi, my name is Siona (pronounced Sho-na) Karen and I love designing crochet patterns inspired by nature.

I started on my crochet journey two years ago and since then I have been practising hard, learning new techniques and developing my own designs.

My other passions include reading, gardening, walking in the countryside, having picnics, romance, chocolate, period drama, the environment, wildlife and anything else crafty!

As you can see my other interests are very nature based and nature features heavily in the inspiration for my crochet patterns and designs. I love the beauty of the countryside and really enjoy trying to recreate a little element of that in my crochet. Whether it is a flower or leaf or animal I love working out the shapes and textures and colours to make something from nature.

This blog, Siona Karen, is devoted to the ongoing craft adventures that I have. It features helpful resources and free patterns as well as telling you about my current craft projects and patterns.
