About Me


I’m a 7th grade math teacher at a rural school in St. Albans, WV.  I am married to a wonderful guy and have an amazing son.  I learned to crochet by watching Youtube videos one summer while at college.

  1. Hi …just curious about the Chansey crochet pattern…I am unclear about round 4 …is that a single crochet then 2sc and then 2 scs ?

    Could you possibly email me and let me know ? ….thanks , I am making this for my daughter who is going to supernova on the weekend 🙂

    • Round 4: *sc 2, 2 sc in next sc* around (24)
      it means to sc twice, and then in the 3rd sc have 2 sc or what some people call an increase, then keep going around. so if I were crocheting it would be like single crocheting in each sc as follows 1 1 2, 1 1 2, 1 1 2, 1 1 2, 1 1 2, 1 1 2 If that doesn’t help I can try to re-word it for you! 🙂

  2. Hey i cant nit but can purchase haha. I love your work!!! Are u interested in selling? Please contact me

  3. I accidentally stumbled upon your site while perusing afghan patterns and just wanted to say that you are incredibly talented and I loved seeing all of the characters you have created with crochet. Simply wonderful!

  4. Would I be able to make the Yoda with size 10 cotton instead of yarn do you think? Thank you for sharing your work! ❤ from Canada

    • You could, it would be a lot smaller and you would have to use a different sized needle. I’ve never gotten used to working with such small thread, but you could always try. I hope it turns out well 🙂

  5. I just love Yoda! Thank you for the pattern & the great video. I’m currently working on the jacket back. I’m confused as to wear to start but I’ll get it. Wishing for more videos! LOL

  7. hi i am doing the yoda an am abit lost on sewing the rest of him together as i cant seem to find the photos the folow to sew him together thanks leanne

  8. I’m a little late to the party….am making Bowser for my 6 year old grandson who just loves all of those characters. One quick question…….is there any part of him that is NOT stuffed? I have made many “stuffies” for my grandkids and most directions let you know when and how much to stuff each piece. Asking before I get too far into the pieces. (Hope I’m not too late to get an answer.) Thanks Betty

    • Hello, I made this pattern years ago! The hair spikes, tongue and claws are not stuffed. Everything else is. It’s a big project and I hope you enjoy making him 🙂

      • Thanks for the help. Another question about round 10 on the feet. “Round 10* sc8, slip stitch” Is the first * a mistake or should there be another * at the end. Do I continue the pattern around the row or just do it once and F/O
