Hello! I'm the Founder and Creative Director of Nattypat Crochet. At Nattypat you'll find Crochet to Collect & Cuddle. I specialise in patterns that are quick to make, realistically shaped, and lovingly designed to mimic nature's cutest critters. I founded Nattypat in 2010 when a slightly obsessive urge to make cute things became unbearable. In all honesty, if I didn't share my creations with the world I think I'd currently be buried under a massive pile of yarn and crochet hooks. You can contact me directly at I'd love to hear from you for anything yarn/crochet related, or for any graphic design opportunities. Until then, happy crocheting!
