About Sheryl

Hi! I’m Sheryl, also known as The Whimsical Hen, and I love crochet. I love it so much I decided to devote a blog to my passion for hooks, yarn, and the magic that happens when the two meet.

I learned to crochet as a Girl Scout and never really looked back. There were the natural ebb and flow of activity that correlated directly to other life factors. But now, I am free to crochet when, what, and where I want. It’s a beautiful thing.

During the most recent crochet revival I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time to have patterns published in Interweave Crochet and by Leisure Arts.

So, what will you find here? A little of this and a little of that…all focused on the things I decide to make. Sometimes there will be a pattern, sometimes a tutorial, sometimes a link to another designer and sometimes just my ramblings about history, technique, trends, etc.

I sincerely hope that something I share here is enough to spark your interest and creativity. Whether you choose to create with a hook or any other medium, I feel creating is one of the most important things we can do for our emotional and mental wellbeing.

Until Next Time,
