“I just want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares.”
I’m proud to say that I am the creative designer behind the patterns here at B.hooked Crochet. I’ve never been one to follow along with provided instructions. In fact, I typically do just the opposite. I love to draw inspiration from all around me and figure out techniques and designs on my own. I absolutely love this aspect of my hobby and passion! Sharing my designs and love for crochet through each and every item is my ultimate dream. I have an overwhelming sense of joy each and every time I hear a B.hooked Crochet viewer’s success story.

Why B.hooked Crochet?
Whilst driving to the yarn store one evening, yes the yarn store, my favorite place, I had this wild dream to begin my own website to showcase my creative crochet patterns. “This couldn’t be just any ol’ website” I thought, “it has to be amazing; it has to instruct; it has to inspire”.
So where exactly did the name come from? Well, anyone who crochets knows just how addicting it can be. It’s quite fitting that crocheting is often referred to as “hooking” because of the tools we use and its addicting qualities. I was quite certain at this point in my life that I was, well, hooked. Alright, hooked it is. But it needed a little more and hence came the idea of the B. I thought “my name is Brittany, and just about anyone who picks up a hook will ‘be hooked'”, and there it was, B.hooked Crochet was born!
