High Desert Yarn is getting a much needed update this Spring! Please be patient as these changes will be rolled out through May 2022. All previously published blog posts are still accessible – even free crochet patterns! However, you may see images + text that is not crochet, yarn, and outdoors related. Kindly ignore those.

If you need any help navigating HDY.com during this remodel, please email Joanna at hello@highdesertyarn.com

Welcome! I’m Joanna!

Avid Adventurer – Crocheter – Indie Yarn Dyer – Mom

These are a few titles I passionately hold. My kids and I try to be outside as much as possible. We love to explore new trails as much as we explore our back yard.

Here at High Desert Yarn you’ll find crochet patterns + hand dyed yarn inspired by nature.

In everything I create, I want to inspire women to keep crocheting and exploring. Take a look around in the free crochet patterns for your next project!
