Edie Eckman's Profile
Many years ago, Edie Eckman co-owned a yarn shop. No one told her that yarn shop owners don't actually get time to crochet (or knit), so after a few years she closed the shop and turned to designing. Now she has her fingers in many aspects of the fiber arts, as teacher, writer, designer, editor, and technical editor. She considers herself fully bi-textural, and likes to serve as a Knit-Crochet Dip

Edie travels extensively to teach both knitting and crochet. Her articles and designs have appeared in many yarn company publications and magazines, including Interweave Crochet, Knitters and Knit 'N Style. Edie is the author of Around the Corner Crochet Borders, How to Knit Socks: Three Methods Made Easy, The Crochet Answer Book, and Beyond-the-Square Crochet Motifs…
