Meet Crochet Designer Maria Bittner of Pattern Paradise

Maria Bittner of @patternparadise learned to crochet when she was a child, after watching her mother craft, and she has been a crocheter (and now crochet designer) ever since.

She elaborates on Craftsy, where she sells more than 100 crochet patterns:

“I have always loved to create. I can remember making Barbie Doll clothes out of scraps of fabric as early as 6 years old. I was fascinated by my mother’s friend who could make fabulous clothing out of odds and ends. I would watch her crochet and try to memorize how her hands moved.

One day I picked up a hook and some crochet thread that my mother had laying around, and I started to crochet. The first thing I made was a crude doily, but it was enough to encourage me to continue. I bought pattern books with my allowance and tried to follow the diagrams to learn different stitches.

  1. Hello,
    I am wondering if you can help me find a video on your website. I did not bookmark it and now I cannot find it. It was a short video on how to make a baby’s hat. It was either white or cream in color and it was started at the top with a few chain stitches. I would love to find it again as it was really well done.
    Can you help as I have searched and searched and have been unable to find it.
