Hello! I’m Mareike and an avid knitter and crocheter. I never thought designing patterns could be so much fun! To turn a vague thought into a finished object (that is useful or wearable) feels still like a little wonder to me.
My knitting adventure began eight years ago when I received a pair of knitted socks as Christmas gift from my aunt. I fell in love with these socks – and I wanted to make my own pair! A lot of youtube videos, browsing through books, cursing and frogging later I finally had a pair of wearable knitted socks. And it didn’t stop there. A year later, I had many little balls of leftover sock yarn – and I learned to crochet to make myself a snuggly blanket with double crochets. Since then, both crafts have been a huge part of my life.
Still curious? Let’s list some things that I like…
Favorite book series: Harry Potter (Always!)
Favorite movies: Watchmen, Lord of the Rings
Favorite TV series: Star Trek Deep Space Nine
Favorite video games: Silent Hill 2, God of War 2, Batman Arkham Asylum
Favorite Superhero: Batman
Favorite Supervillain: the Joker
As you can see, I’m a full-time nerd — not only when it comes to the yarny arts!
I see myself as a yarnadventurer! I like to play with texture, different stitches and shapes! And I try to make my patterns customizable so that you can use your favorite yarn.
Your knitting or crocheting experience will tickle your creativity and allow for your unique style to shine through. Let’s play with yarn!
