Michelle, aka Dora (she/her) set up Dora Does in 2017 to share her crochet patterns and record her journey as a crochet designer. Dora Does looks at the fundamentals of crochet, as well as crochet design and serves as a resource for crocheters of all levels. It’s place for Dora to blog about all things crochet, including the benefits it can have on mental wellbeing and personal growth.
Based from her home in Cambridge, UK, Dora designs practical, modern garment, homewears and accessory patterns. Each with an added hint of whimsy, joy, and a splash of colour here and there. Her aim is to dispel the myth that only advanced crocheters can make their own wardrobe. Crochet wearables are for everyone and Dora wants to help crocheters build the confidence to start that journey.
