Kim Guzman at CrochetKim | About Me

“There isn’t often a day when you won’t find me without a crochet hook or my knitting needles in my hands! Turning these loves into a full-time career that fulfills my desire for creativity is like a dream come true.”

Kim Guzman is an award-winning teacher and crochet pattern designer. She writes a variety of patterns including garments, home decor, accessories and gift items.

Kim Guzman Portfolio of Books | Crochet and Tunisian crochet

Kim has authored nearly two dozen crochet pattern and technique books, most of them in her favorite form of crochet–Tunisian crochet. Tunisian crochet offers Kim more flexibility in her designing due to its unique look, which can mimic knitting or weaving, depending on the stitches used while still maintaining crochet’s ease. Being able to combine these looks together in one project brings all needlework together and makes Tunisian crochet a favorite among many. 

You may often hear that Tunisian crochet is the “step-child” of knitting and crochet. “Not so,” says Kim, “it’s more like the best of both worlds!”

Her latest books, The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Tunisian Crochet and Tunisian Cables to Crochet, offer something for everyone for beginner to advanced.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
