About the Designer
Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Martin began his crafting journey after moving ‘up north’ to Sweden in 2010. He crochets to keep his hands busy between stints outdoors capturing the beauty of local nature with his camera. Designing gives him a sense of balance, “the contrast between the freedom of wilderness and the wish to control my hook and stitches gives me inner peace”. He often incorporates geometry, texture and a range of techniques into his designs. Martin has previously designed the successful Get Connected and Landscapes Scheepjes Make-A-Longs.
