About the Author

DORIS CHAN broke into the crochet design scene when a photograph of her first doily shawl attracted the attention of a notable yarn company, and she's been at the forefront of modern crochet design ever since. Her work is featured in the design catalogs of yarn companies, including Caron International and NaturallyCaron.com, Tahki Stacy Charles, and Coats & Clark, in magazines such as Interweave Crochet, Vogue Knitting Crochet, and Piecework, among others, as well as on Knitting Daily TV and Knit and Crochet Now on public television. She is an avid professional member of the Crochet Guild of America and a CYCA certified crochet instructor. Catch up with Doris at her site dorischancrochet.com, discover her independent pattern line, DJC Designs, and coming soon from Interweave Crochet, her DVD workshop Top Down Construction.
