Tanja Osswald


Tanja Osswald is a crochet designer who loves to explore new techniques like slip stitch crochet or Tunisian crochet. “I’m intrigued by unusual constructions, for example, I invented a way to make horizontal cables. Most of my patterns are crochet patterns. but I wrote two knitting patterns so far, one of them to transfer my technique of horizontal cables to knitting.” Tanja’s patterns are available in English and German (some also in French and other languages), on Ravelry, LoveCrafts, Payhip, and MyPatterns. Tanja’s fingerless mittens are fantastic.
