About

Aoibhe Ni (pronounced AY-vah NEE) is a Tunisian Crochet designer from Ireland.
She has been crocheting for over 30 years, and designing professionally for about ten. She’s had patterns featured in books and magazines internationally, and has taught crochet all over the UK and Ireland.

She’s a pioneer of the “Short Hook” Tunisian method for both lace and colourwork shawls but she also dabbles in amigurumi, traditional crochet and knitting.
All her patterns are designed to be made with a regular-length crochet hook, so no extra tools are necessary to begin!

She doesn’t believe in mistakes, instead calling them “alternative methods” and loves to see her patterns adapted and altered by those who make them.

All you need is a hook, some yarn to get started!

Her patterns come with helpful How To videos at key points in the pattern, so even a beginner will find them accessible.

  1. Hello Aoibhe, What a delightful blog! I’ve been reading posts you have made on Ravelry’s Tunisian Explorers group. It is lovely to be able to read a little bit about you. Thank you for your generosity in sharing with everyone. Because I am not on Facebook, sometimes I miss the personal connections people make there. Nora
