Meet Jennifer

Question: Who are you? Tell me about yourself.

My name is Jennifer Dickerson of Fiber Flux! I have been running my company for over 11 years. I design crochet and knitting patterns, teach techniques on my YouTube channel, and run my pattern shop. I have written and have contributed to several books, as well as a handful of crochet magazines. I really love what I do and believe I have the best job ever!

Personally I am a mom of two busy kids and enjoy walking my dog and volunteering. I am a lifelong fan of art museums and love to soak in gorgeous art whenever possible. I am most inspired by art and nature in my work.

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

I first learned to knit with a DVD (!) from my local library. I was quite taken with it immediately and my curiosity led me to try crochet too. By then there were a wealth of tutorials online and I began learning the basics and built my skills from there. To this day, crochet is my absolute favorite craft!

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

My advice would be to not worry about the appearance of the finished piece at first. Jump on in and get in there and be OK with mistakes, holes, and misshapen things. Some of my biggest revelations have been from the biggest disasters! Also, focus on quality over speed at first. Keep practicing, speed comes with practice and building muscle memory.

Question: What do you enjoy crocheting the most?

I adore everything easy and simple! Once in a blue moon I will choose a challenging project for fun, but I come back to crochet again and again for its simple and soothing, meditative effect that it has on me. It has the ability to quiet my mind and let go of the day. I love to get lost in a shawl, blanket, or scarf and totally zone out in my stitches.

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

Other than crochet, I enjoy knitting, although I don’t do it a whole lot. I really love to bake and my specialties (lol) are apple pie, baklava, chocolate cake, bread pudding, and chocolate chip cookies according to my family!

As I mentioned before I have been a huge art lover my entire life and enjoy getting a dose of art history whenever possible. There are very few things more fun to me than spending a day combing over an art museum!

Question: What prompted you to start designing?

When I started my blog years ago, I was mostly making things for friends and family for fun. After one instance where I had just made a bunch of baby hats for an occasion, I had an idea to create of my own, the rest is history!

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

I created my first design 11 (ish) years ago and published the free version to my blog ( For each one of my patterns, I also make a full video tutorial from start to finish as well. Also recently, I have been offering ad free patterns in my Etsy shop and to my Fiber Flux Gold Club members on Patreon as well!

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

I live in a place that has four distinct seasons so I’m always compelled to create things that are seasonal. I also can be inspired by a certain palette of colors that I see in nature or even something in a work of art. I also tend to get very excited when I discover a new stitch and will make different things with the same stitch too!

Question: What do you enjoy designing the most?

I would have to say shawls. I enjoy personally wearing them and gifting them–no special sizing needed! I love the thought of literally wrapping someone in something I’ve made, that’s really special! They are a great opportunity to master a stitch as well.

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

I would definitely say to jump right in and don’t wait until the planets are perfectly aligned. You will make mistakes and sometimes growth is slow. In the beginning, I considered my small audience to be a positive as I had growing pains and there were less people to see them! I am so thankful for my early audience, many are still with me and supporting Fiber Flux to this day!

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

Over the years, I have tried so many different things to see what sticks and works. I feel like at this stage in my business and its growth, I am implementing practices that are in that sweet spot of growth, yet not being overwhelming either. That can be a tough balance.

In addition, having an online business forces us all to stay current, be on top of trends, while being true to one’s self. I want the future to bring growth, as our craft brings so much joy to peoples lives, but I never want to sacrifice my sense of self in the process.

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

I suppose my answer to this question is more general here, but I am drawn to makers that upapologetically use a ton of color! I love bright cheerful grannies, or a gorgeous rainbow blanket, or fun fabulous dishcloths. The more bright and vibrant color, the better!

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 guess I’m very seasonal about it! I love a bulky or super bulky weight in the winter. A classic worsted weight in the fall, but when it warms up in the spring and summer, I am obsessed with a lovely hand painted or speckled sock yarn!
