About Krista + Easy Crochet

Hello – I’m Krista and I love to crochet, collect yarn and shop for yarn. I started Easy Crochet to share all the crochet patterns and tips I’ve learned throughout my decade of crocheting.

If you would like to see if any of my patterns would work for you, you can check out my massive archive of free crochet patterns (there are over 700!).

Most days you can find me at home in front of the computer, sipping on a cup of hot coffee, working with yarn, designing patterns, taxiing my children to all their sports or cuddling with my pups.

I live in a small town just north of Pittsburgh, PA with my husband Chris, our three children and always-barking-at-a-squirrel rescue dogs Penn, Clyde, and Henry.

We also love traveling as a family, and some of our favorites spots are any National Park and Walt Disney World!

Find Me

I’ve designed for companies like Lion Brand. You can find my crochet kits and other patterns on my Lion Brand page. You can also sometimes find me on the various platforms owned by the CGOA, Yarnspirations, Boye Yarn and Ravelry.

Share Your Projects

I operate a private Facebook Group for crocheters that I encourage everyone to share their projects inside. I am always hopping into the comments and helping others become the best crocheters they can become!

Some Random Things About Me

Warning – absolutely none of this has to do with crocheting…

  1. Bon Jovi is my favorite music group of all time! 
  2. I met my husband three years before I started dating him and didn’t even know it!
  3. I love coffee! (a strong brew and in multiple quantities is best!)
  4. My husband and I run our own business full-time.
  5. If you have a dog, chances are I will pet it. 🙂
  6. You can also find me over at makingaspace.com, ohshecooks.com and occasionally, my husband’s sites parksandtrips.com and beermaverick.com.

Anyway, let’s connect if you also have a love of crocheting. You can find me on Pinterest, Facebook, or Instagram! Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter, so you’ll never miss out on a free pattern release.
