Junior Ava Richmann begins to crochet her next project. Richmann has been crocheting since her freshman year.

The first crochet pattern ever created was around as early as 1829 and junior Ava Richmann is still using those techniques today.

“I crochet because it’s a way of coping for me and it’s very relaxing plus I like to craft. I do consider it more of a hobby than a business, I tried to do a business but experienced burn outs frequently,” Richmann said.

Richmann has been crocheting since her freshman year and is self taught. She continues to crochet because it’s fun and she loves the community.

“I hyperfocus a lot so I crochet on and off and I do like to do it quite often until I have a burn out and eventually go back to it a while after,” Richmann said.

There are over 30 different crochet styles and all of them are unique and different. Richmann’s favorite stitch is treble but she mostly uses a double stitch. She crochets a variety of different things, such as blankets and tops, but her favorite has to be her blue hat she’s made or her green checkered bag.

“My step sister inspired me to crochet because she started doing it before me and I thought it would be cool,” Richmann says.

Richmann continues to crochet and inspire people with her creativity, as well as encourage people to create art themselves. She has taught many other students and even a teacher how to crochet successfully and she says she enjoys teaching others.

“I enjoy helping others. I love to crochet and want to teach others how to do the craft,” Richmann said.
