Meet Moon Eldridge

Bromelia Infinity Scarf
It is with great pleasure I get to introduce you to Moon Eldridge.  She in an incredibly talented Knit and Crochet Designer.  A quick walk over to her Ravelry page and you will find design after design of smart and modern pieces.  In Vintage Modern Crochet, Moon designed two pieces.  Bromelia Infinity Scarf and the
Cyrine Striped Dress are perfect examples of her modern and feminine designs.

She and I got to chat this week, here is a little of that:

Bromelia Infinity Scarf
RC: What is it about crochet that inspires you to design in it?
ME: I love that airy effect and lacy feel about crochet and I also love that
crochet can make solid fabric, as well. There are lots and lots of pretty
stitches to use for any design you can think of.

RC: What is one of your favorite techniques in crochet?
ME: Tunisian crochet is one of my favorite techniques.

RC: What was the last item that you made for yourself (in any craft)?
ME: The last item I made for myself is a knitted sweater. I made it during my pregnancy and for sure I couldn't wear it back then. I gave my twin boys birth at Feb. 25th. Now I can wear it again.

RC: What other crafts do you love?
ME: I also love knitting. I learned how to knit much earlier than crochet when I was 11 or 12.
Cyrine Striped Dress

RC: What was your inspiration behind your design in Vintage Modern
ME: For Cyrine Striped Dress: Like I said I love Tunisian crochet and lots of people who don't know about Tunisian crochet think it is only can make solid and thick fabric. I wanted to show that Tunisian crochetcan be very lacy, too.
For Bromelia Infinity Scarf: I like pineapple stitch and there are many
pineapple stitch patterns. In this design I try to combine pineapple
stitch and spider stitch together. It turned out really pretty.

RC: What is next for you? Where can people see more of your work?
ME: I am working on a Tunisian crochet scarf for Interweave Crochet
Winter 2017 issue right now. With the new born kids, it goes really
