Meet Crochet Designer Maria Bittner of Pattern Paradise

Maria Bittner of @patternparadise learned to crochet as a child, inspired by watching her mother craft. She has been a crocheter and crochet designer ever since! Maria says:

“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.

Over the years I have tried various crafts but always return back to my first loves, sewing and crocheting!”

Maria has come a long way since that first doily. Her Ravelry and Etsy stores are packed with a huge range of patterns for everything from doll clothes to decor. If you’re looking for a crochet pattern, chances are good that you’ll be able to find what you need among Maria’s designs.

  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.
