I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

  1. love the colors you used! Granny squares are so versatile and great scrap busters. You can make anything from a toy to a king sized blanket and best of all, you can't have too many patterns on them! Thanks for sharing 🙂
