Hello, I’m Vicki.
Thanks for stopping by to my little world which seems to contain a lot of crochet!
I do try other crafts too, but my absolute LOVE ❤️ is crochet – which I tend to go back too every time.
Here you can find all my free patterns, get tips and hints and find out all about yarny things.

A little bit about me……..
I live in Hertfordshire, UK, with my husband, and two little people, known here as “the pink one, and the blue one”, 2 lurchers and 6 chickens and 2 wiggies (aka Guinea Pigs).
My crochet journey started back in 2014, when I was determined to make an angry bird hat for the blue one. Roll on one whole day sat on Youtube rewinding, constantly on pause and failing miserably before making what I thought was a hat for 3 hours the next day (it turned out to be a doily – I was so off the mark), but then luckily (and finally) Crochet clicked!
The Angry Bird hat was made, very quickly followed by an Owl hat for the pink one (can’t have favouritism), and I haven’t looked back!
I completely understand the frustration of crochet not making sense, thats why I now teach crochet to others at The Makers’ Cabin. I don’t think there is anything more rewarding than when it “clicks” – and to be honest this varies from person to person how quickly that Eureka moment happens.
To say crochet has taken over my life is pretty much an understatement. Aside from a crochet teacher, it wasn’t long before I was making my own patterns, and then onto the road of being a published designer in Simply Crochet and Crochet Now magazines.
