Did you Know?

The Blue Crab AKA the Chesapeake blue crab or the Atlantic blue crab also has the Latin name Callinectes sapidus. It means “beautiful savoury swimmer”. They can be found along the coast of America from Canada and the USA through the Gulf of Mexico to Brazil and even as far south as Uruguay. Sea turtles and cranes appreciate well dressed Blue crabs as much as we do.

    I haven’t had a chance to actually make one of these hilariously adorable door stops but I’ve looked over the patterns and I’m very impressed by how well written they seem to be! Pictures and terminology are all there to help beginners with the patterns. I’ve been crocheting for years and these are some of the best written patterns I’ve seen.
    Thank you for share your talent and patterns with us!

    This is my first make of a Cottontail and Whiskers design and it certainly won't be my last! Every part of this pattern was easy to follow and clearly illustrated. So happy with the end result and very reminiscent of the gulls trawling the bins near where I live.
