I’m Brianna!

My name is Brianna and I am the Designer behind Life and Yarn! My blog, Life and Yarn, came to be in late 2016 after I had my first little boy! From wanting to make a few simple pieces for the baby I was growing, to making crochet pattern design my job, Life and Yarn has grown into more than I could have dreamed! 

Taught by my Grandma at a very young age, I really don’t remember not knowing how to crochet! It was a hobby I had picked up and put down many times in my life from middle school, to high school and even college! Before I became pregnant I was actually making jewelry, but sadly I had to stop because I developed pregnancy induced carpal tunnel! I didn’t even know that was a thing until it happened! Anyways, I’ve always been that person that needs to be doing something, always needing to keep my hands busy! 

So, I picked up a crochet hook that had been in my desk draw for years! I quite literally found myself hooked! With my hands not doing what I wanted them to do I was frustrated, but I could do this craft without pain! So onward I went to relearn a craft that I discovered was so natural to me!

I started out looking for simple beginner crochet patterns to make and began making weekly trips to the craft store. I had been working from home as an Architect at this point in my life so there were days I didn’t have to leave the house! Going yarn shopping was a bit of a treat! Quickly, I became bored with the patterns I found online and started combining my own stitches and Life and Yarn has really just grown from there!

Now, I have been building my blog to be filled with free crochet patterns that are easy for beginners but satisfying to seasoned makers! I try to create modern crochet patterns for all skill levels using simple crochet stitches in fun combinations! If you are just learning how to crochet I promise there is a free crochet pattern here for you!
