About Me


My name is Amanda and I am the owner of AMK Crochet!

I love working with children and am excited to have finished my BA in Early Childhood Education. While working at a local child development center and as a nanny, I realized how much I loved working with children, making crafts, and baby shower gifts. After making my first diaper cake for my aunt’s first baby, I became addicted. Then, I discovered crocheting and couldn’t stop. Through the support and inspiration of my husband I have branched out into creating and writing my own patterns. I love that I am able to continue working as a nanny while also continuing my love of designing and writing patterns.

I crochet items for the whole family, but have been focusing on newborn items lately. I branched out into writing my own crochet patterns at the beginning of 2015, on Ravelry and Etsy, so I created this blog to be an additional resource. I want this blog to have everything you need to know to successfully create my patterns and any other item you choose to make! Starting in 2016, I will be reworking my site to be selling patterns here and also on craftinoo and craftsy. That way you can choose your favorite location to access my patterns. 🙂 I am also going to be adding more free patterns as I go, so make sure to check back and follow me on Instagram or Facebook to get updates.

Thank you!
