about your teacher

Hi, I’m Lynda! I’m a chunky crochet designer and teacher and I’m from Melbourne, Australia.

I’m passionate about effortless design and crocheting easily.

I discovered the healing and relaxing powers of crochet after I was knocked down by chronic fatigue in 2012. Crochet helped me to escape to my happy place and rebuild my life.





Can I use any yarn to crochet my blanket?
Yes, you can use any yarn to crochet your chunky blankets. You’ll need at least 400m of yarn that is about 1cm (0.4in) in diameter.

What size crochet hook will I need?
The first blanket is designed for a 25mm / U crochet hook.

How big is the first chunky blanket?
The Warm Heart Blanket is sized for snuggling on the lounge of being draped over the end of your bed. It’s 1m x 1m.

How do I get 20% off and free shippingin your online shop?
The 20% off and free shipping code is available to you in our Online Classroom.

How long will it take me to make my first chunky blanket?
It will take 4 weeks (a new section each week). There are 50 videos that step you through the entire making process.

What are the videos like?
