Hello and welcome! I'm Kristi, a crochet enthusiast living in Tallinn, Estonia, the capital of a teeny-tiny but thoroughly wonderful country in north-east Europe.
I studied genetics and bio-engineering for many years, but never became a scientist. I think my heart just wasn't in it. So now I am self employed and have plenty of time for my hobbies, one of which - toy making - I would love to share with the world.
How I got hooked....
As many things in life, it started with a beautiful baby girl - my niece. I was looking for a small and unique gift for the baby shower, but didn't find anything, until I stumbled upon a photo of a few tiny crocheted animals and thus found myself in the wonderful world of amigurumi. I didn't know about Etsy then, and a good thing I didn't. So I decided to try making them myself. And then I made some more and now I don't seem to be able to stop.
I've been dabbling in amigurumi making since 2012 and have learned a few things - mostly how not to do things. But I have acquired a few bits of useful knowledge as well and now have made it my mission to share everything I know about crocheting toys with all of you. All my patterns are written with beginner crocheters in mind - I always include detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.
So, settle down, take a little look around and I hope you will feel inspired to pick up a ball of yarn and a crochet hook and create some crocheted cuteness yourself. Go straight to browsing my PATTERNS and if you feel you need to brush up on a technique, take a look at the LEARNING CORNER.
Thanks for stopping by!
