Hi there! I’m Claire. Welcome to Once Upon a Yarn.


I learned to crochet in the spring of 2011 because I wanted to make dolls and stuffed animals. When I discovered amigurumi, there was no turning back. I started blogging on October 20, 2012 because I wanted to share my crochet patterns with the world, and here we are now!

I’m a Hufflepuff, introvert, fangirl, and vegetarian, among other things. I have a 6-year-old pet chicken named Harriet. I’m usually buried in books and yarn. I sell cute crochet things in my Etsy shop, BaleineCrochet, and am always up for a custom order.

I write novels. Sometimes people publish my stuff. I’m also a writer for Crochet Spot and PSU Chronicles.

    Just found your blog and will be making some of the doll dresses. They look awesome! But your chick cosy was the best thing ever. Certainly put a smile on my face!

      🙂 Thank you, Frannaz! I just love crocheting things for guinea pigs and chickens – glad it made you smile. (I’d love to see pictures if you make some doll dresses!)

      I’m so glad you like the pattern, Happy Cheeseburger! I’d love to see a picture when you finish BB-8. Let me know if you run into any problems along the way, and I’d be happy to help. I, too, am rather obsessed with BB-8; he’s adorable! Have fun! 😀
