Crochet Pattern Design

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”I keep this famous Willian Morris quote in mind when designing and I think it sums me up pretty well!

My style is simple, colourful, modern and playful. Life is too important a thing to be taken seriously after all!

I especially love designing practical, wearable crochet clothing. I’m on a personal mission to help people grow their confidence enough to make their own crochet wardrobe so if you’re interested in crocheting garments, you’re in the right place!

Crochet Resources

As well as tutorials and patterns, this site contains a resource section to help develop your crochet skills whether you are a beginner or budding designer!

This includes a Stitch Directory, a Tips and Trick section (for all those epic hacks!) and a space for all the technical bits and charts.

I’m a firm believer that there is always something new to learn and I hope this will lead you to agree!

Crochet + Wellbeing

A self declared crochet addict, I started my blog, Doralosophy, to share my crochet designs, tutorials, tips and tricks but very quickly it became more than that. I began to write pieces about thoughtful living, mental health, personal growth and I realised how crochet has helped with all of the above.

Crochet has definitely saved my mind!

It is my goal to share these benefits with you and help you discover how creativity can build your confidence, reduce stress and improve daily wellbeing.
