Interview with the Designer - Amy Ramnarine:

Amy Ramnarine from The Stitchin' Mommy designed this tutorial on How to Crochet the Bavarian Square and we asked her some questions about crocheting and blogging.

Q: Who taught you to crochet and how old were you? 
A: I actually learned how to crochet on my own by watching tutorials on YouTube and reading crochet books. I just practiced until I felt comfortable enough. I was already an adult at the ripe age of 23 when I learned how to crochet.

Q: What skill/technique/project is on your "bucket list?"
A: I have been trying to learn Tunisian crochet and hope to master it soon enough! It's one of the things that has been on my "bucket list" for a long time and I hope to cross it off my list in 2016.

Q: Where do you get your inspiration?
A: My inspiration comes from everything around me. I LOVE color and I am always looking for color inspiration in nature and items around the house. I get my project inspiration mostly from my kids and friends. I am always creating items for someone so my projects are mostly made for someone "needing" something. 

Q: How long have you been blogging? Why did you start?
A: I have been blogging since 2012. I started my blog to promote my finished items that I had for sale. I then began designing my own crochet patterns and have been doing that ever since. My blog has gone through numerous transformations but I think I am in a good place with it now.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I like the texture and colors used here. Most of my projects now have bright colors and I really love them. I was inspired by one crocheter who's projects are done in bright colors. I'm inspired by those.

I have not made this yet, but after reading and seeing the pictures I am very interested in making this one! I don't care for doing the granny squares, but this Bavarian Square is something very different! I love the colors used and the design this pattern makes with the textures is so nice. Love learning new things. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet how to.

WOW. The colors and the stitch are STUNNING. Must add to my list!!

I agree. Especially when you can add your favorite colors to this and still come out beautiful.
