contemporary and wearable crochet designs featuring luxury and eco-conscious yarns

shestartsagain designer & owner - lauren - left her corporate job to follow her dreams and passions; becoming a crochet designer and literature PhD researcher.

lauren had crocheted a little for 10 years, but became truly addicted whilst she was living in Krakow, Poland from 2017-2019, having moved from the UK. a new pace of life and change of scenery allowed lauren to re-discover her creativity and eventually sparked the decision to quit the corporate scene and devote her time to the things she loves most; crochet and women's literature.

shestartsagain designs are inspired by cool, sophisticated colours, luxury fabric and high-end design. lauren is also excited by eco-conscious and independently-produced yarns, so expect to see patterns incorporating these types of yarns. this love of luxury and high-end design also translates to shestartsagain pattern documents, which have an editorial-style design, because lauren believes the pattern document can be as beautiful as the crochet design itself.

another important shestartsagain value is wearability: all garments are sensible and modest so you really can dip into your handmade wardrobe on a daily basis and for all occasions.
