I’m Claire! Welcome to Once Upon a Yarn, home to my crochet designs and writing. Here you can find lots of free crochet patterns, as well as tutorials for beginners. I’m an ardent fangirl, so you’ll see your fair share of fandom-inspired crafts – I also occasionally blog a book. Click here to visit my blog. I hope you enjoy your stay! 🙂


As an English major who’s also studying creative writing, I’m almost always found writing or with my nose in a book, so of course that makes its way to my blog. 🙂 I’ve blogged two books here, posting a chapter a week, and occasionally post essays and other bits of writing.
