Doris Chan began crocheting when she was eight years old. She spent twenty years working in broadcast radio, crocheting just for fun. In 2002, her original crochet shawl appeared on the Lion Brand Yarn Company website, and she leapt into the world of crochet design almost overnight. Since then, her designs have appeared in publications such as "Family Circle Easy Knitting," "Crochet!," " Vogue Knitting," "Interweave Crochet," and "Knitscene" magazines, and in several books, including the Lion Brand "Just" series. She is an active member of the Crochet Guild of America. This is her first book.
