“Crochet Hooks You!”
Hello, I’m Paula Daniele – Former Crochet Designer, Teacher, Video Producer, Webmaster and Creator of the Crochet Hooks You Website and Youtube Channel.
Even though I have now retired from Crochet Hooks You, I still share my patterns with you on this website and you can access all my how to crochet video tutorials on the Crochet Hooks You Youtube Channel.
My designs are mainly for the beginner and easy skill level crocheter but you will find the occasional intermediate design thrown in every now and then. You will also find that the majority of my projects are small, quick and achievable. Each design of mine that is made into a video tutorial will have the written pattern within the video tutorial itself and print my patterns free from this website.
Permission is allowed to use my video tutorials and patterns to sell items made from them.
I taught myself how to crochet when I was a young girl and quickly picked up how to crochet the granny square and got hooked. At that time I had no idea that stitches had names nor did I care. I just wanted to crochet! And so I did.
Crochet started in our family by my Great Grandmother, Vera, who would crochet doilies, edgings, etc. I somehow ended up with Vera’s crochet kit and it all started from there.
I did eventually learn what the crochet stitches were called so I could read and design patterns. I have learned from both U.S. and U.K. pattern books now but I prefer writing and reading crochet patterns in U.S. terminology. There is a wider use of the U.S. stitches and terms which means there are more patterns and videos available to you.
I particularly love the giving side of crochet. It’s nice to hand something special to someone just because.
Thank you for visiting Crochet Hooks You. Do well!
All the best,
