MEET THE DESIGNER: JUFFROUW HAAK
Marloes, better known as Juffrouw Haak, learned to crochet and knit at a young age. She loved watching her mom make the most beautiful things. As a kid she mostly made small projects and all different kind of squares.
It was later on Marloes started sharing her crochet-journey on Instagram, where she can be found as @juffrouw_haak. She makes detailed photo’s of different process steps of all her projects on Instagram. Most things Marloes makes are her own designs. She often combines her crochet work with fabrics behind her sewing machine. As she says herself: I’m never out of inspiration!
What does ‘Juffrouw Haak’ means, you ask? It means ‘crochet teacher’ in Dutch, because the Netherlands is where Marloes is from. In daily life she teaches Kindergarten and as you can guess – she also teaches the elder kids from Elementary school to crochet.
For the launch of two of our new yarns, Serene and Cheerful, Marloes started to design our Yarn and Colors Winter Essentials Lookbook. She made six different patterns that will keep you warm this winter.
