About MakiCrochet

Hello my dear friend!


I am very happy that you found your way to my site!


Let me tell you something about myself! 🙂


My name is Maja (my husband call me Maki :)) and I live in small town in the center of Croatian coast. I have a daughter and a son and, of course, a husband hehe. He helps me with the “computer stuff” and I am more up in the clouds making designs.


So, … my mother taught me how to crochet when I was about 12 but I didn’t seriously crocheted until several years ago when my niece asked me to crochet a cellphone purse for her birthday and since then I crocheted baby afghans, baby booties, scarves, hats, bags....about anything you can think of, and as you can see a got “hooked on hook”. 🙂 


After a while I decided to open an Etsy shop because at the beginning of my crochet adventure I sold a lot of baby booties and they soon became a huge hit so I sat on my computer and started writing patterns. I realized that writing patterns is soooo much fun and I am so happy that I can share all my ideas with the whole world! Thanks to the internet, of course!


I had a day job, eight hours of office every day, even more sometimes, and didn’t have much time to do my “fun stuff” so I decided to quit and spend my time on the things that really matter, my family, friends and “the almighty Hook”.

I hope you will understand why all my patterns are not free. I have to pay the bills somehow, we all do hehehe!


All my patterns are made by me with much patience, love and positive energy. I really am very positive person! I do LOVE crocheting and I really hope you will enjoy my patterns.  I try to explain everything because I was also a beginner once. 🙂


Patterns are PDF files available for download through Etsy or Ravelry and I have some free on my blog which will be updated frequently.


So, don’t be a stranger and come by from time to time!
I love what I do and I will continue doing it! 🙂
