Jennifer Dougherty

Jennifer Dougherty has been a lifelong crocheter, but she didn’t find her true calling as a pattern designer until her mid-thirties. Within a few short years, she had built up a thriving online business, Crochet by Jennifer.

Jennifer has several pattern stores online, including Etsy, Ravelry, Shopify, Craftsy and LoveCrafts. She has an active Facebook page for Crochet by Jennifer and also manages several crochet groups online. Jennifer’s patterns have been specially featured by Etsy and have also appeared in crochet magazines and on blogs worldwide. She has won several design competitions in Happily Hooked Magazine and has been featured by The Crochet Cafe. Jennifer added knit designs to her portfolio in 2020.

When not crocheting, Jennifer enjoys reading and spending time with her family—a husband, two daughters, a son-in-law and two adorable grandsons.
