Welcome to Crochet Maze!

ElaineI’m Elaine, the founder and publisher of Crochet Maze. I’m an Internet entrepreneur and blogger with a passion for crochet. You could say I’m an addict and I’m actively avoiding the cure (if there even is one!). Since you’re reading this, perhaps you’ve got that crochet passion too!

I started crocheting was I was eight years old and I’m at least the third generation of crocheters on both sides of my family. I have fond memories of being mesmerized as my grandmothers and my mother turned yarn into beautiful doilies, table runners and afghans.

I’m no expert in crochet, believe me, but I’m always happy to find creative and innovative patterns and tutorials and I love to share them.

I update the site daily because there’s always something new and awesome out there in the wonderful world of crocheting. I also love to investigate new products and services that will help you in your crafting journey.

I hope you’ll visit Crochet Maze again and again. And be sure to subscribe to our twice-weekly newsletter so you’ll never miss out! And please feel free to share, Like, link, Tweet and Pin anything you find here!

  8. Do you have any crochet patterns for gloves? For men? I’d sure appreciate it if you did, because my husband keeps asking why I can’t figure out how to make fingers on fingerless gloves. But, after a stroke at 53, a five week coma at 59, where I was on life support and a feeding tube, because resuscitating me 27 times a day just wasn’t an option, then a severe concussion, when I fell in the washroom and hit our cast iron tub with my head and shoulders. I moved the tub 1 and 3/4’s”. It had never been moved in 37 years. I was sent to the city for emergency MRI’s twice, in the ambulance, sirens and lights all 50 miles, because the Dr thought I had bleeding on my brain. Then, this past April, I had pneumonia so bad, oxygen was forced through my nose. I couldn’t breathe and my body was rejecting the antibiotics. After 4 runs of different antibiotics, my Dr had one more antibiotic to try. He didn’t think I was going to live. 99.9% sure I was going to die. And, after 7 days of the last antibiotics, on May 11, I started to improve, and was released from the hospital May 18th! I was unaware that I couldn’t breathe. God in His infinite wisdom, put me in a state, that I was blissfully unaware I couldn’t get a breath! I kept telling my husband that every night, My Precious Mom came and held me all night. She had died in that hospital on June 12, 2015. When I was getting better, my husband told me, I was in the bed My Precious Mom was in when she was diagnosed with Stage 4, aggressive uterine and ovarian cancer. That was May 17, 2015. And, I was in her bed. God made me feel Mt Precious Mom hugging me every night! I know He did. The same as I know He let’s me and my husband smell her favourite perfume in the room. Our Gibson, our 14 year old puppy, has looked in up in the stairwell at My Precious Mom, ever since we came home the night she died. She had lived with us for about 18 months. Gibson loved her to pieces. He still looks up at the stairwell, for up to a minute at a time. He’s never looked like he was looking for something, he’s always looked like he was looking at something. And, he’d smile. He still goes and sleeps on her bed… I don’t have a website. Sorry.🤷🏻‍♀️🙃😎

    Hi Elaine, I love your bunny C2C pattern. I have made two of them one in blue and the other in light purple. Your pattern was so easy to follow. Would have liked to send you photos of them
