My name is Kim Guzman. I am a freelance designer and technical writer of knit and crochet patterns. I have written over a dozen hard copy books for various publishers, have had hundreds of designs published in a variety of magazines including Crochet World, Crochet!, Interweave Crochet, Creative Knitting, Knit Simple and more, and have also started selling individual self-published patterns online and through Annie's Crafts.

My newest books are Tunisian Crochet Stitch Guide from Leisure Arts and Learn Drop Stitch Crochet from Annie's Crafts. Both are available in hard copy or PDF download. They are also available in other retail and online shops.

You can see a complete listing of my books here with links to check for availability. And, visit my Portfolio page for more information about other designs.

My free crochet patterns can be found at CrochetKim.com, my original website which has been online since 1998!


In my designing career, I like to use some more unusual stitches. Because I use unusual stitches, whether I've found them in vintage books or made them up myself, my goal is to ensure your success in the pattern. I've created free online videos to assist you in reaching that goal. The videos are now conveniently located at YouTube. You will find the greatest number of Tunisian crochet videos than anywhere on the internet, including both right- and left-handed orientations. Here is an example of one of them.


In addition to my videos, I frequently teach online classes to teach new techniques and help with my designs. Visit my blog here for my current teaching schedule.
