HKN Redefining Crochet, One Stitch at a Time

They say fashion is a language. For me, crochet and knitting are the dialects I speak. It's not the grandma's Afghan squares. My designs are bursts of color and texture, meticulously crafted to challenge expectations and celebrate self-expression.

Hooked on Crochet, Sharing the Craft

Fashion has always fascinated me. As a kid, movies like Clueless sparked my imagination, and I'd spend hours sketching clothes. Fast-forward to design school, and I stumbled upon crochet—a whole new world opened up! It felt like discovering an ancient 3D printing technique, where yarn and needles became my tools. Crocheting allowed me to sculpt garments, and I was instantly hooked.

From Personal Expression to Design Exploration

Growing up in a culture that valued traditional masculinity, I sometimes felt like I didn't quite fit the mold. Crochet became a way for me to explore my own creativity and express myself authentically. It wasn't about challenging anyone but rather about discovering who I was and what I wanted to create. Each stitch became a small step on that journey.

One area I found particularly intriguing was lingerie. Here, I could push the boundaries a bit, experimenting with textures and revealing silhouettes. Pieces like "Crochet Wrestlers" were inspired by vintage photographs, while "Rococo Fever" was a playful exploration of color and details. These designs weren't meant to be for everyone but rather a reflection of my own journey and a celebration of individuality.

Finding Inspiration in Everyday Beauty

Inspiration truly can come from anywhere. Vintage finds whisper stories of the past, musicians like Rihanna push boundaries, and even my own heritage adds a unique thread to the mix. It's all about keeping an open mind and seeing the beauty in everyday things.

This is your invitation to explore my world, a place where crochet sheds its traditional labels and embraces a bold, beautiful future. Join me on this journey. Let's rewrite the rules, one stitch at a time.
