Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Anne, I’m 23 years old, and I’m from Aarhus in Denmark. I have never really been that creative, but it all changed when I decided to learn how to crochet. I’ve tried to learn knitting several times, but I never really got the hang of it so crochet was an easy choice as I would only have one stitch to focus on at a time, haha.
What made you start your company?
I started crocheting in November 2020 out of Corona boredom. I started out by crocheting Christmas decorations which turned out very far from how it was in the pattern (see photo). I got better and slowly I got the hang of it. It makes me relax and I can really just go into “the zone” and it’s so calming.
Tell me about your products?
I mostly crochet bags. I like to crochet stuff I can use – opposed to small figurines and teddy bears. I’ve also made blanket and some sweaters, but yeah, bags are my favorite thing to make. Also, because I’m sewing in the lining which mixes two types of craft (crochet and sewing) I feel like I’m expanding my horizon.
What struggles have you faced when getting into the industry?
I didn’t know how to crochet, I guess. I also didn’t know if I would keep doing it or if it was just a phase. But I ended up loving it.
