Spoiler: I Crochet
My name is Vincent Green-Hite and I currently reside in the great Pacific Northwest! To be even more precise, Portland, Oregon. I am the 24 year old behind this brain child and Yarn Punk. What I do isn’t revolutionary by any means of the word, but it sure is fun; I crochet! I began my crochet journey in August of 2015 after deciding college wasn’t for me and leaving my luxurious job as a delivery driver at Dominos Pizza. After quitting school and my job, I found myself in my parents basement, so I did the next logical step and I looked up how to crochet on YouTube! Making Pokemon was what my heart wanted to do. I directed my focus on an art form known as Amigurumi, the Japanese art of knitted/crocheted stuffed animals. Just trying to distract myself and focus on my mental health, this was an outlet that was working for me. Thanks to Instagram, I started getting noticed and realized I could make this a full time gig- So here I am now!
There’s endless things you can do with yarn and I’m having fun seeing what I can do – Here, you can find Free Crochet (& Knit patterns soon!) ranging from fun doll making, known as Amigurumi, to Wearables, Home Decor and tutorials for Yarn Punk. (Head HERE to find the patterns and tutorials!)
My platform will be used to tackle various political and humanitarian issues. If you would like to read more on my policies, you can head over to Yarn Punk’s About Page.
Oh yea, and Fuc* racism. Read my stance here.
