Meet Rosina Plane – Designer of the 2021 Advent CAL{endar}

We’re so excited to have top crochet designer Rosina Plane, back to design the brand new Advent CAL{endar} for 2021. We know how much you all loved crocheting up last year’s Advent CAL and so many of you have shared pictures of your completed CAL from 2020 including Gold Medallist Tom Daley! We think Rosina’s new design will be just as popular and you’ll enjoy learning some new stitches and techniques as you get your daily tutorial and reveal the 25 balls of yarn and crochet gifts in each drawer.

We thought you’d like to know a little more about

What inspired your design for this CAL?

Christmas. This year I wanted to make something a little more appropriate to the festive season … no more clues just yet though 😉 xx

What is your favourite type of project to crochet?

Mosaic crochet blankets.

Where’s your favourite place to crochet?

Sitting in my recliner in my crochet corner.

Which of your crochet projects are you proudest of?

This is a difficult one… probably my Sugar & Spice blanket (pictured above) as it was my first proper commission when it was published in Crochet Now in February 2019.

What’s the biggest challenge you’ve ever faced with your crochet?

Writing the pattern! I find it relatively easy to come up with a design, but writing it down in a way that is easy for makers to follow takes a lot of time and mental energy for me.

What’s the best piece of crochet advice you’ve ever received?

Weave in your ends securely, don’t just work over them.
This is particularly important with the Magic Ring.

Do you have any big crochet plans coming up?

Always! I am currently working on a new Temperature Blanket CAL, which (unsurprisingly) will be starting at the beginning of January.

Where can people find out more about you?

I have a website, but I must admit I don’t update this as much as I should.
