Hi everyone!  If you’ve made your way to this page that means you may want to know a little more about me right?  My name is Kathy Lashley, and I’ve crocheted on and off for over 30 years.  A long time ago my 7th grade teacher taught me how to crochet and I’ve never really lost the passion.  As my children were growing up, I didn’t have as much time to crochet but now that their grown, it’s been like a wild-fire has grown inside of me.

In December 2012, I wanted to officially start a small business but wasn’t sure what to call it.  To make a long story short, ELK stands for Emory Lashley Kathy and yes, I know the proper etiquette says KLE, but I liked ELK and it seemed to flow and sound better.  I married Emory in 2009 and since then every dream that I’ve ever had he has supported and given me encouragement.  I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for him and wanted him included in my business (although he will NEVER pick up a hook and yarn……

I hope you enjoy hanging out here with me and my Southern Alabama accent.  If you have any questions or comments, let me know.  I would love to hear from you!

Here is a picture of me and my hubby.

  2. Hi I just want to say that your website is beautiful, your patterns are perfect, you are beyond inspiring and I’m so happy to have come across your across your work 🙂


  3. Hi Kathy,
    I’ve always wanted to learn to crochet, so you have inspired me to finally do it!! I love, love the boot cuffs and want to make my own, as a beginner, who has never hooked:), what pattern would you recommend I try first?
    Thanks so much & wish me luck!!!

  4. Kathy,
    I love your patterns. Do you have a pattern of your basket weave bootcuffs? Or can you tell me how many stitches you started with and I can do the rest. Also, what is the circumference of your cuffs? I belong to a charity group where we make blankets, hats, scarfs. etc for different organizations and the military. We are going to be part of a craft fair so we can raise money for our group and since cuffs seem to be popular now and they are easy to make, I thought I would try a few different patterns.




    • Tricia,

      Thank you! It’s been over a year since I made the basket weave boot cuffs and I never wrote the pattern. I think I still have them, so let me look at them and I can get back with you.

      As far as the circumference goes, all my boots cuffs were custom made, so there wasn’t an exact size because I would get the measurement from my customer and make them accordingly.

      I think it’s great that you want to make some to donate but the size of a person’s calf can vary so much that it may be difficult to gauge. I agree with you that they will be popular. It was my best seller last winter. I’m sure you could just make some in varying sizes and it would work. I know I’m not much help…sorry.

      I would love to see some of your finished projects from my patterns if you want to show them off!!
