About

 

Hi, my name is Lou and I am a self-taught crocheter and a newbie knitter. Although my mother taught me the basics of knitting when I was a child, I didn’t pick up my needles again only after I learned how to crochet as an adult.

I first started crocheting at 2012 and immediately fell in love with it and started writing my own patterns. This blog is my creative outlet to share free patterns, with the new or more experienced crocheter, and all the projects in my busy mind that I could not share otherwise in my handmade business.

When I was starting out, free patterns was my go-to source. I didn’t want to invest in something that I was unsure If I could make. Now, I am hooked! Give me all the patterns in the world! Free, paid, I really don’t care. I want to try them all! This is the place that I want to give back to all of those people that are coming after me on this new adventure. I like to make new crocheters feel confident enough to try everything they like.
