Hi! I’m Melissa, the designer behind the free crochet patterns that you’ll find here on my blog, Lovableloops.com. I started crocheting in 2017 as a form of therapy. It quickly turned into my favorite hobby and now it is my job! I feel very fortunate to make a living doing what I love.

In addition to designing patterns for my blog, I have also designed for Lion Brand Yarns, Crochet World magazine and am a regular contributor to AllFreeCrochet.

I am currently working on another exciting project- a corner to corner crochet course that should be available mid-February 2022. Corner to corner (C2C) crochet is my favorite crochet technique.

You’ll probably notice that most of my more recent patterns have been C2C.

It is so much fun! For sneak peeks of upcoming projects, follow me over on Instagram. If you don’t know how to crochet C2C and don’t want to wait for my course, I also run a YouTube channel where I have crochet tutorials. Go check it out: my channel.

When I’m not crocheting, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my three kids Aidan, Ashley & Marky. We like to do movie nights & game nights. We have recently been playing Texas Hold’em and it is so much fun! Take a look around while you’re here. I hope you find something that inspires you! And if you make any of my patterns I would love to see pictures. You can share them with me on Facebook or Instagram.

Happy Crocheting!

Melissa
