Pat Olski is equally passionate about knitting, crocheting and embroidery. Her designs reflecting all three have been published in many issues of Vogue Knitting, Vogue Knitting Crochet, Knit Simple, and Noro Magazine, as well as in a variety of books ranging from Debbie Bliss to the Cascade "60 Quick" project series. She has created numerous patterns for major yarn companies, and is the author of three crochet booklets in the Go Crafty series from Mixed Media Publications. She is also the author of the books Crochet Stories: Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland in amigurumi and Yarn Whirled: Fairy Tales, Fables and Folklore in yarn craft as well as Crochet Stories: L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in amigurumi and Yarn Whirled: The Royal Family which will be published in early 2017. Pat enjoys nothing more than translating complicated traditions into relevant and approachable designs.
