Hello! I’m Ellen, the maker behind the scenes of Crochet by Ellen!
Welcome to my crochet blog where you have access to tutorials, free patterns, and insight into my journey as a maker mama.
After having an Etsy Shop for about a year, I’m excited to share more about my journey as a shop owner and maker with you.

I started my business as a crochet artisan in 2017 after my oldest daughter started preschool and I found that I had more time at home to indulge in the things that I love. Truth be told, creating a business that fulfills my soul is one of the best decisions I ever made.
I’m obsessed with anything crochet related whether its yarn, hooks, patterns, other makers in the community, and so much more.
I published my first pattern, The Arcade Infinity Scarf, in September and let me tell you, I’ve caught the design bug! You can find this and many other patterns and items in my Etsy Shop and on Ravelry.

I’m so excited to share more with you, including some free patterns!!!
