Hi and welcome to my page.
My name is Katja Simončič. I am a stay at home mum of a baby boy. We live in a small town, Krško in Slovenia.
Since I was a little girl, I always did something with my hands. I have been crafting and creating jewelry and toys as long as I can remember. My passion was making beaded jewelry, but when I got pregnant, I had to lay down a lot, and you can not work with beads that way. I just have to create something, so I fell in love with crocheting again. Especially amigurumi and tapestry crochet, but I like crocheting hats, baby blankets, shoes, dresses, everything.
Crocheting is a big part of my life now, and as we all know, crocheting, buying yarn, and collecting patterns are three different hobbies.
Why I created this blog?
I created this blog because I wanted to share patterns, that I love to collect so much. My goal is to connect crocheters and make a page where we could help each other, get to know each other and form a community.
I will post a lot of free patterns from different designers; I will interview successful designers so that we will get to know them, their story, and what inspires them. Because I know that crocheters don´t have time to read, but we do like background noise, I will make video interviews. So that you can enjoy them while you crochet.
In my blog, you will read about yarn, yarn shops and suitable substitutions for different types of yarn.
I respect pattern creators.
I think they are really inspiring. That is why I will link to their page in my posts. I will not share patterns that are payable for free.
Join our community if you want to enjoy our company. You are welcome here.
If you want me to introduce someone, please write in the comments, and I will gladly interview them. If you want me to present you and your work, write to me at Katja@bestofcrochetpatterns.com or comment below, I will do it with pleasure
Have a nice day,
