Hi! I’m Jessica

I’m the Owner, Designer, and everything else at Herr Stitches. After learning to crochet as a teenager, I fell in love with the craft and the wonderful garments it produces. Recently, I have decided to share that love with the world, starting Herr Stitches out of my home in 2019. During the day, I’m a neuroscientist at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

Modern, Size-Inclusive Sweaters

Herr Stitches focuses on modern crochet and knitwear designed to be both stylish and comfortable. I’m constantly seeking inspiration for fashionable new designs, scanning both the high-end boutiques of Philadelphia’s “Main Line” suburbs and the late-for-class styles of university students with equal appreciation. My designs are size-inclusive (XS-5XL) and created to be worn by anyone.

Beautiful, Handmade Yarn Bowls

In addition to designing patterns, I also make my own high quality glitter yarn bowls. Each is handmade with the finest resin and mixed to perfection with luxurious holographic glitter. Because I believe your WIP should sparkle as much as your finished project! 😉

Outside of Yarn

When I’m not in the lab or crocheting, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercising, and trying new restaurants.
