Less than one week until Christmas! Our Christmas Countdown continues with today’s featured artist: Anna from The Knotty Boss.
The Knotty Boss
Hi! I’m Anna, the designer, and maker behind The Knotty Boss. I currently live in the Philly area, but I am originally from Ukraine. My family immigrated to the States when I was 12 years old, and I’ve been calling this place home ever since! Professionally I’m a graphic designer. I hold a BFA in Graphic Design [uArts] and have been working as a designer/art director full time for the past 13 years. I love minimalism, a structured grid, and generous use of white space. I am also obsessed, and I repeat OBSESSED, with Typography and Letterform design.
Two years ago I decided to try and learn crochet, after stumbling onto a world of Amigurumi Cacti on Pinterest. As a habitual plant killer I loved the idea of a plant I couldn’t kill, and as a designer/craft-a-holic I HAD to make it myself. Crochet just seemed to click, and I was immediately hooked…obvious pun intended. When I’m not crocheting you can find me on my couch scrolling through the Netflix guide trying to find something to watch, eating cheese and drinking white wine spritzers [excuse the run-on sentence] If it’s summer time then I’m probably by a pool or on a beach.
The Knotty Boss –
Cactus Icecream Cone Ornament
I am so excited to share my Amigurumi pattern with Mary Maxim readers. This pattern combines my love of cacti and ice cream, and it makes the perfect tree ornament. I hope you love it as much as I do!
