The Crochet Dude, otherwise known as Drew Emborsky, learned to crochet at age five. After studying fine art in college and doing the "starving artist" thing for years, he began crocheting for charity. During this time with the charity group, he became known as "The Crochet Dude", which then led to the launch of his wildly popular blog, Since then, Drew has published numerous patterns in magazines and compilation books, and his own full-length books, has appeared as a guest on various TV programs, and is currently the crochet expert on the hit PBS show "Knit and Crochet Today."
