About Morale Fiber Blog

Although my slogan is “Until morale improves, the crocheting will continue,” this blog is about everything to do with fiber art, not just crochet exclusively. Crochet was just my gateway craft.

I ramble about everything fiber art  & DIY related here, as well as relate some other thought blobs including but not limited to: nature, travel, style, philosophy, cursing, and food.

If you like my crochet patterns, be sure to follow me for updates on my designs, info about special deals, and easy access to Pattern Help & Support!

  About Me

I started crocheting when I was about 10  (thanks  Mom and Grandma!) and took it up seriously when I was 19, and since then I have been in  relentless  pursuit of fiber art knowledge.

I crochet, knit, sew, spin, weave, embroider, and dye, as well as dabbling in pretty much any other craft I can get my hands on.

Morale Fiber is my professional face, started in 2011 as I began to sell my handiwork at small festivals. In early 2015 I finally turned my hand to selling my original designs online and blogging about my experiences with my art. I draw my inspiration from folklore, mythology, fantasy, punk & DIY ethos, and nature-based spirituality as well as the beauty of natural science.

I live in Bloomington, Indiana with my wonderful partner where (when not hunched over surrounded by hooks and needles with yarn in my teeth) I also enjoy reading fantasy and mythology, discussing language and sometimes renovating it, cooking vegetarian, being terrible at yoga, bellydancing, glamping, and playing with small mammals (human or otherwise). I’m currently a student at Indiana University working toward my bachelor’s in Visual Arts Education.

I never grew out of playing dress up.

  3. Hi, I am so glad I found your site. I haven’t crocheted In a hundred years, I knit an. ld sew. But I have a young friend who crochets like a crazy woman! She is fast and amazing, just pulling something out of her head it seems. I would like to have her crochet a circular vest for my granddaughter, who is a 5 year old hippie. I love her style! I think Joy would LOVE the mandala circular vest. Have you made this pattern in a child’s size?

    • I’m so glad you enjoy my blog! I personally haven’t made the mandala vest pattern in a child’s size, but I know someone who has – I believe she just used a smaller weight yarn and a smaller hook to size it down, but then I think her young gal was a little older, maybe 9 or so? You could use both a thinner yarn and a smaller hook size and if that still looks like it will be too big, skip some of the repeats of Rnd 25 to shorten it. Unfortunately I don’t do a lot of kid’s garments because I don’t have one of my own, so that’s about as much as I know for this one!
