Rohn Strong is one of the most passionate crafters you’ll find. He’s an author, designer, instructor, and broadcast personality in the knitting and crochet world. He specializes in crochet, tunisian crochet, hand knitting, and loom knitting.

Rohn is most well-known as the author of The Heritage Collection: WWI and WWII, the first book to study the impact of knitting on the American home front during both world wars. He is also known for his best selling crochet books and his accessible, inclusive, and patient approach to nurturing the crochet community via print, video and social media.

He has continued to build his design portfolio becoming an internationally recognized blogger, designer, and author; a designer for major brands like Lion Brand Yarn, Red Heart Yarns, and Premier Yarns, and as the Crochet and Loom Knitting Expert on PBS’ Knit and Crochet Now!. 

Rohn strives to motivate and inspire people to do what they love without the modern pressures of everyday life through education both online and in person – most recently authoring the resource guide Step Into Crochet and beginning a new online loom knitting class catalog.
