“Crochet Changes Lives. I want to play a small part in that change.”
Crochet has changed my life in so many ways. It all started as a way to occupy bored hands and mind. It didn’t take long to develop into a passion that occupied all of my free time. I wanted to share my new found joy with everyone!
I began my journey as a crochet instructor by sharing my knowledge with friends and family – any one who would listen. Once I realized I loved teaching just as much as crochet, I decided to merge the two. B.hooked Crochet was born.
I have dedicated the past four years to YOU, a fellow (yarn) hooker who wants to be inspired and learn new things. I’m so grateful for your love and support over the years! As I move forward in this journey, I’ll be taking a new approach to B.hooked Crochet. It is no longer a passion project but rather, my full time job.
I’m here for you as an instructor, as a mentor but more importantly – as a friend.

Why B.hooked Crochet?
Whilst driving to the yarn store one evening, yes the yarn store, my favorite place, I had this wild dream to begin my own website to showcase my creative crochet patterns. “This couldn’t be just any ol’ website” I thought, “it has to be amazing; it has to instruct; it has to inspire”.
So where exactly did the name come from? Well, anyone who crochets knows just how addicting it can be. It’s quite fitting that crocheting is often referred to as “hooking” because of the tools we use and its addicting qualities. I was quite certain at this point in my life that I was, well, hooked. Alright, hooked it is. But it needed a little more and hence came the idea of the B. I thought “my name is Brittany, and just about anyone who picks up a hook will ‘be hooked'”, and there it was, B.hooked Crochet was born!
