Ciao, I’m Kate!
I’m an enthusiastic Italian crocheter living in London. I love to design crazy creatures coming from fantastic worlds, like ’Tipo Strano’ (Oddball), who always comes along.
I believe that crocheting and hand making it’s funny, creative, rewarding and also helps people being happier. That’s the reason why I design patterns and tutorials to make amigurumi, unique accessories, simple projects to learn new skills and enjoy crocheting
I learnt to crochet when she was 6 years old from the grandmother, now I design accessories and crazy creatures coming from fantastic worlds. I collaborate as a freelance designer with yarn companies and magazines in Italy and UK.
I’m the co-founder of Magliuomini association (the name is an Italian wordplay that means ‘men who knit’). The Facebook group has more than 4500 followers and the scope is to aggregate men with the passion for textile arts, it’s also open to women and our mission is to share our love and knowledge for those amazing arts. Myself and the other founders organise events in Italy across different cities.
Since 2009 I have been proudly publishing my adventures on my blog madebykate.me. I love to share my creativity as I think it’s the main way to receive back powerful emotions and growth myself.
Let’s get in touch!
