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 26 year old Crochet Amigurumi Artist and voice behind Yarn Punk. What I do isn’t revolutionary by any means of the word, but it sure is fun; I crochet! But my goal is to make it something it hasn’t been.
I began my crochet career 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 followed the natural progression of things; I looked up how to crochet on YouTube! Making Pokémon 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! A self-proclaimed Yarn Punk.
Although I started off with Amigurumi I have had the opportunity to try my hand at many different disciplines in the field – ranging from wearables (sweaters, cloaks, scarves, etc.), to home décor, and still maintaining a dominant focus on Amigurumi. With that knowledge, I offer free crochet patterns and tutorials. By clicking the links above in my menu, you can find all of these on my blog as well as my Etsy shop!
I have had some amazing opportunities and articles I am just so excited about! Here are few that I’m proud of:
I was in a National Commercial for JOANN!
