This is my story

As long as I can remember, I have been crazy about animals. I still have hundreds of stuffed animals in my bed; I am a lifelong member of WWF and travel the world to see the most exotic animals.

Before I started designing my Amigurumi creations, I searched the internet for crochet patterns of animals I like, but I often left disappointed. That is when I decided to take matters into my own hands and started to design my first crochet pattern, Julian the ring-tailed lemur. It was so much fun that I couldn’t just stop there. By now, my to-do list for making new designs never seems to become any shorter. My collection of amigurumi patterns grows steadily with the most exotic animals and animals close to home.

A few things about me: I am married, a mom of two, and I have an overexcited Labradoodle. Also, I am a lefty with everything except crocheting! My mother has taught me the art of crocheting. She helps me design patterns and is the best mother and grandma I could wish for. Oh, and if there ever is a competition for speed crocheting, she will definitely win!

My aproach

Amigurumi Patterns

Our goal is simple; to make all imaginable animals available to you as amigurumi patterns. We offer patterns in different styles, but one thing is certain, they are all animals.

4 free CALs per year

We organize 4 free CALs (crochet-a-longs) per year, one every quarter. Our CALs can always be followed at your own pace, because I think it is important that crocheting is a hobby and there should be no pressure on it.

Easy to follow

All our patterns are easy to follow for beginners as well as the advanced crocheters. Our patterns are always easy to adapt so that they become your own beautiful creations.
