Four Designs for Men; The Minneapolis Collection

We’ve moved!

We are still The Firefly Hook, bringing inspiration to crocheters, but we changed sites.

We are now at, but we’ve got a new look.

Come on over!

Click here to visit site.


Our latest eBook release:

The Minneapolis Collection: Eight eclectic crochet designs for men & women inspired by portraits of a Midwestern city.

Our model Corin committed to this project while we were still in the designing stages with Nerd Girl Yarns. It was very difficult to winnow the choices for Corn’s designs down to four.

We are so excited about these designs for men! Click on the links for more info on Ravelry.

Stone Arch Bridge Scarf

This scarf celebrates the cool breezes coming off the Mississippi

and the beautiful old railroad bridge that still spans its powerful waters.




Nicollet Ave Tie

We can’t wait to dress up and take this tie out for a night on the town,

listening to a local jazz band or admiring

the fading light over the skyline while dining on an outdoor patio.




MIA Ascot (Minneapolis Institute of Art)

The versatility of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Ascot

can lend itself to a highbrow afternoon of art gallery perusing

or a down-to-earth evening of burgers and brew.




Franklin Street Beanie

This beanie is a true celebration

of the warmth and comfort of Maria’s Cafe

and the diverse culture alive around Franklin Street.

Our new site will be more of a portfolio and tutorial hub rather than a blog.

    • Hi Susan!
      Thanks for letting me know – it wouldn’t let me type on the form either. I’ll look into it and see if I can get it working.
