About Us

...a girl that loves to craft and share her passion with the world!

Hello and greetings everyone.  I am Cassandra, the creator of this blog and I just wanted to take a few moments and share a little about myself.

I absolutely love to crochet.  My mother taught me this much-appreciated life skill when I was around seven or eight years old.  She used to crochet baby blankets for all of my older cousins as they were growing up and having children.  
I am one of the youngest in my family and most of the children that received those blankets are now in high school.  Growing up and watching my mom craft has really made me love and appreciate handmade things.
I started CassandraCae Crochet in June of 2014.  The website started as a place where I was going to share all of my crafting and cooking adventures but after a while, I ended up writing about crochet. While I do feature other crafts on occasion, CassandraCae Crochet is dedicated to the classical art that is crochet.
That brings us to now.  This is a re-branding.  This is the That Crafty Girl From Ohio.  A blog that is dedicated to the art of crochet and the different designs and projects I come up with. I also love to see work by other people, if you have something to share make sure to scroll down and contact me.

Along with my crochet hobby I share here on this blog, I do lots of other stuff too.  I am a college student at Kent State University and I am finishing up my Bachelor of Science in Conservation Biology.  I enjoy camping and walking around in the woods.
I am married to the love of my life and we have two of the most loving and handsome cats on the entire planet which are Earth. They were both rescued.  When we found our Herman, he was nearly dead and wounded badly.  Now he is a fat and happy 15-pound ball of love.  Our Ravage was a runt, wild, and way to young to be away from his mother and now he is the sweetest cat anyone could ever ask for.

But I am back and I have a new crochet pattern to share, it's called the Pink Pineapple Doily The original pattern appeared in 1951 in the publication Star Book No. 87, Doilies, Doilies, Doilies. For a printer friendly and editable version of this post, scroll down to the bottom and click the button that says "Print Friendly." I am absolutely in love with this doily.

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
