Hi! I’m Toni Lipsey, the designer, instructor and author behind TL Yarn Crafts

I share crochet inspiration and education for makers of all skill levels. Stick around for crochet tips and tricks, roundups of my favorite things, and so much more.

I’ve designed over 100+ chic and practical crochet patterns for modern makers. Find your next sweater, shawl, and blanket project in my shop.

I started blogging about crochet in 2013, but in 2015, I was looking for the ideal slouchy beanie pattern and couldn’t find it anywhere. Frustrated beyond belief, I set out to create my own ideal beanie.

Several months and a few dozen discarded samples later, the Mega Pom Beanie was born and so was a crochet designer. Since then I’ve designed 30+ accessories, garments, and amigurumi dolls. I shifted my focus solely to designing in early 2017 and quit my day job later that year to pursue it full time. Talk about scary! Help quell my anxiety and see all of my designs on
