Tanya Naser began crocheting as a young child, marveling over the freehand dolls her mother would create every Christmas, seemingly out of thin air. She didn’t follow a pattern book or know why some stitches were called single while others were double and triple. But the thing Tanya most admired was that she never worried too much about what other crocheters thought. She did what she loved and every year she delighted as the small army of dolls she lovingly created marched out of the house and into the arms of her eager customers!
These days, her crochet style would be considered freeform by die-hards of the craft—and Tanya is proud that HodgePodge Crochet was born out of that organic beginning. Over the years, she has spent a lot of time learning and mastering new techniques and building upon her own free flowing style to come up with something that represents the crocheter she's now become. HodgePodge Crochet is Tanya's passion.

Hi Member 7921504, this is Tanya's profile page on our site. It is a sort of hub for all of her patterns, but it isn't something that Tanya herself checks or moderates. If you would like to get in touch with her or ask her anything, I would suggest that you click through to her blog and find her Contact page and ask her directly. :) Thank you!

I have NO doubts that I'm not the first person to ever use the loop stitch in a shoe. I kinda wish I knew about that pattern though and had it to reprint stitch for stitch instead of writing patterns using complicated stuff like math.... (<---sarcasm there) As for my pattern, I can assure you that it's an original and morphed out of my bootie phase--which you'd know more about if you read my blog. I'm gonna jump out on that limb there and say you haven't. Take a break from that pattern you've been holding on to for the last 30+ years and come on over for a look. Thanks so much for your comment though! I'm sure you've already downloaded a free copy of my pattern and have seen how different it is... With Love! Tanya Naser HodgePodge Crochet

I've searched the pattern's directory on Ravelry.com and have seen for myself that the Pattern mentioned by you is not even close to being the same as Tanya's Loopy Boot pattern. Honestly that paid for pattern looks pretty sloppy in comparison. The amount of time and work I've seen put into Tanya Naser's patterns should definitely NOT be compared to THAT pattern. $4.99 for something that looks holey, lumpy, and uneven? No thanks. HodgePodge Patterns --free content or paid are far superior.
