About Cottontail & Whiskers

Bea learned to crochet in 2013 by making a granny square (as you do)! Once she picked that hook up, it never really got put down again. Granny squares just didn’t cut it anymore so she self taught the skill of amigurumi, pattern writing and counting… a lot of counting!!!

It has grown from there and we’ve never looked back. Once the house was filled with animal heads and toys we decided to open this shop so others can enjoy Cottontail & Whiskers creations.

We live in rural Aberdeenshire in bonnie Scotland with ever wavering attention, passionate disdain and a challenge on the specification of every fact and none at all, simultaneously. We do however love one another, our 4 children, 2 dogs, 3 chickens and an unhealthy an amount of yarn. We are crochet creator Bea King and technical beardie Jim Buchanan.

Tell us more about Cottontail & Whiskers you ask?

Colour is a huge influence, which is why you’ll find a menagerie of wavelengths absorbing each passing gaze. Starting out with basic animals body shapes, our designs have grown with confidence. Now sanity is constantly eroded by creating ever more vibrant and detailed imaginings. The challenge is half of the journey and a warm glow of satisfaction when a piece is complete pops a cherry on top.

We absolutely love what we do and the best praise is being told it makes people smile. Job done! If you ever get crochet curious and pick up one of our patterns, we’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

There’s always a crafty challenge around the corner, so if you have any knotty ideas why not get in touch.
