My name is Catalina, also known as Katerina.

I am a Romanian living in Netherlands and I became “friends” with this craft and all yarn related crafts, when I was feeling overwhelmed with so many changes in my life: having a child, moving to another country, being a stay-at-home mom.

I learned to crochet many years ago, back in my childhood from my mom. It got to a point where everyone used to joke and tell her that I had become a better crocheter than her. I rediscovered this beautiful craft 2 years ago and I am so happy I did.

Back in my childhood I always loved to design clothes and I used to recreate the ones that I wanted to buy, but couldn’t afford. Now I love to create clothes in crochet and love to share and to show others how to make them.

I design crochet pattern in association with Hobbii, which can be found for free on, but I also design under my own label, ByKaterina Crochet

I started ByKaterina Crochet because I wanted to show everyone that with this “old fashion” craft you can make really beautiful and fashionable clothes.
