Hi there, welcome to crochet ‘n’ create, let me tell you a bit about myself.
My name is Heather, I’m a designer, writer, crocheter and blogger, crochet has been a passion of mine since I was 12 years old, the art of which was passed down through the generations from my great Grandmother, I remember as a child sitting for hours making one granny square after another (my poor Mum had bagful’s to contend with)
After many years (and blankets) I started to make baby outfits as gifts for my family and friends, no two outfits were ever the same as the pattern was always out of my head and never written down, people kept asking me “can you make me a baby set like the one you made for so and so”, I always said yes, never letting on that it probably wouldn’t be exactly the same as I didn’t have a pattern to follow. I decided then that it might be a good idea to write down the instructions as I crocheted an item.
So around 2006 I thought perhaps I may be able to sell my written patterns and went on ebay, from there in 2008 I started my first website www.justcrochet.com offering a variety of baby outfits.
As my site grew and after doing some research I discovered that there was 2 formats of crochet stitches (UK and USA) so decided to offer my patterns for sale in both formats.
As the crochet pattern industry grew with more and more free patterns becoming available, the idea that people maybe interested in making crochet gifts for the home or to sell at craft fairs came to mind, so my second site www.patternsforcrochet.co.uk was created.
Today both sites offer patterns for many projects, I hope you find something you like.
