Meet Julie

Question: Who are you? Tell me about yourself.

Hi! My name is Julie and I’m a French Canadian living just North of the beautiful city of Montreal, Québec. I’m married, have a daughter and stepson (both in their 20s, yikes), 2 dogs and 1 really fat cat. I love coffee before noon, and wine after ;P

Question: How did you learn how to crochet? How long have you been crocheting?

I learned to crochet mostly on my own, looking at images in books and magazines. I also had the help of a friend in the US. I would e-mail her tons of questions and pictures I’d downloaded from my camera, and she would print them and show me the issues. I wasn’t trying to make things harder than they should =) Social media and smartphones were not a thing then. There wasn’t a Ravelry. Haha.

Question: Do you have any tips for new crocheters? Any guidance to make them successful at a new hobby?

I sure do. Always, always check your gauge. 99% of the time, when someone is not happy with the result of a project they’ve completed from a pattern the issue is gauge. If you learn to check your gauge, you’re really going to enjoy crocheting. And give yourself a break! No one is an expert at the beginning.

Question: What do you enjoy crocheting the most?

Socks, for sure. I love to crochet socks. They look amazing and are super comfortable. I also love to crochet shawls, though I mostly wear them as scarves.

Question: What else are you passionate about (other than crochet)?

I’m a bit of a houseplant fanatic. As I write this, I have about 80… which may seem a bit much to some, but quite few to others. It depends where you’re at in this particular fandom !

Question: What prompted you to start designing?

I started designing because I had all these ideas that I couldn’t find already out there. I specifically started designing sock patterns because I was told crochet socks weren’t as good as knit ones and I couldn’t accept that as an answer.

Question: How long have you been designing and where do you publish your patterns?

I think I started designing in 2010? I publish my patterns online: my website, Ravelry, Makerist.com and .fr, LoveCrafts, etc. I am also published in a few print and digital magazines and in 2 (soon to be 3) books.

Question: What drives you to create? Where do you find inspiration for your designs?

Oh I wish I knew. That would make things so much easier: I could just go back to that when I stare at a blank page/ball of yarn. I think mostly the stitches inspire me. I’ll need to design a pair of socks and look at stitch books and start to get an idea.

Question: What do you enjoy designing the most?

No surprise: sock patterns and Tunisian crochet patterns of all sorts.

Question: What tips would you give to someone interested in designing and blogging?

I would say to be serious about it, but also to not take it personally if your first million doesn’t come in the 1st month. This is a long game kind of industry!

Question: What goals have you set for yourself for the future?

I’m actually living the dream right now! Crochet design, workshops and services are my bread and butter. It makes me super proud!

Question: Who are your favorite makers? How have they inspired you?

I have so many. My absolute favorite designer is Doris Chan. She introduced me (and many crocheters) to foundation stitches and exploded lace. Also, Toni Lipsey of TL Yarn Crafts. She is totally on fire with Tunisian crochet. Love everything she does.

Question: Do you have a favorite yarn you like to use when you are crocheting? What colors and fibers do you gravitate toward when choosing your yarn?

I love Julie Asselin handdyed yarn: https://www.julie-asselin.com/ Julie is an amazing dyer and person. She’s super cheerful and encouraging of everyone in the industry: designers, other dyers, crocheters and knitters…
