Dendennis is still working on his site



Creative being

I am a graphic designer and live in Amsterdam with my wife, adult daughter and young son. I’ve started to learn crochet in 2012, just to relax… but I couldn’t find the right patterns I wanted to make, so I had to start designing, soon after I learned the technique. Within a few months I’ve designed several patterns including Molar, Bill the Black Rooster and my Bunny Bust. And soon after releasing my first patterns I was contacted by a Dutch publisher who wanted to make a book with me, after that everything was a rollercoaster and I’ve turned a fun hobby into a succesfull business and I still enjoy every second of it.

Now I am exploring other fun crafts, like cross-stitch, papercraft, felt, fabrics and hopefully so much more. Thanks to the help of close friends and some great producers my fun characters are ready to conquer the world.
