about the author

megan kreiner, designer

Hello and welcome to MK Crochet! My name is Megan Kreiner. I grew up on Long Island, New York in a household where art and art projects were a part of daily life. Coming from a long line of knitters and crocheters, I learned to knit and crochet at an early age from my grandmother, my aunt, and my mom and started to explore the wild and uncharted waters of toy design and pattern making in 2012.

I have a fine arts degree in computer graphics and animation from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and am currently pursuing a career in the feature animation industry in Los Angeles, California as an animator at DreamWorks Animation.

I live in Altadena, California, with my husband Michael and son James and daughter Emily.
