CARD BY JANA POLAK


Who are you?

I am an illustrator and designer from Slovenia, living in Berlin. I have a small textile design label called Jenny Rotten, where I crochet home decor items, toys and accessories, mostly fruits and vegetables.


How and when did you learn how to crochet?

I have had a big interest in textiles and making already as a child, so my grandmother tried to teach me crochet one day after kindergarten, but it did not go far. Years later, in highschool I got motivated again and learned the basics on Youtube. It is amazing how many things you can learn thanks to people sharing their knowledge.


What’s your favourite thing to crochet?

My favorite thing to crochet are my huge fruit and vegetable cushions. The process is

meditative and the finished project very satisfying.


What’s your favourite yarn?

100% wool yarn, by a small Slovenian company. It is quite rough in texture so it hold shape well for bigger sculptural items. Also the colors they offer are nice and natural.


What’s your favourite hook size?

I like hook size 4 for my woolen projects and hook size 3 for cotton ones.


What’s the most annoying thing with crochet?

Tangled yarn. This is probably the only annoying thing about it.


What’s the best thing about crochet?

The best thing about crochet is that you can take it anywhere! Once you are in it, you will never be bored again. Also being able to enjoy the finished project that you made yourself is pretty great.


If you had all the yarn and time in the world, what would you make?

I would make a sofa sized turnip.


If you had to choose only one thing to crochet for the rest of your life what would that be?

I would crochet my giant fruits and vegetables. They make a unique cushion, brighten up your home and are a great couch companion. They seem to make everyone who encounters them happy, so I don't think I will get bored of making them any time soon.
