Spoiler: I Crochet
Hi! Thanks for taking the time to read this part of my site and learn a little about me!
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 23 year old behind all of Knot Bad! 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!
Growing up, I never thought I had an artistic bone in my body. Who knew crochet would be that perfect medium for me to express myself! After many years of searching for my “calling” and a few years of college that made me incredibly worried about my future, I couldn’t be happier with how my life has unfolded and where I am today. However, that doesn’t mean I have it all figured out! As a person, I will still be growing forever, and this blog and business of mine is sort of my “Thank you” to all my supporters who allow me to live out a dream I could never have fathomed.
Here, you will be able to find free patterns and keep up with all the other yarny fun I find myself doing! I’m very active and love hearing from all of you, please feel free to contact me and show me what you’re making. You all inspire me so much!
Some of my work!
Some things you will find on my website are the charities I run; I am a firm believer in giving back. Also, on my Instagram, I really do enjoy community, so I have made it a point to lead some community events, which I think are very fun! Feel free to hop on board with us! You can even find some free patterns, and I will add more over time! This will also be true for my Blog!
