About me

Wilma Westenberg is a crochet designer and shares free crochet patterns


My name is Wilma and I am 25 years old. I live in the Netherlands with my fiancé Koen. In 2016 I finished my MSc in Communication and New Media. After that I worked at a communication and PR department for a few years, but decided to quit my jobs in January 2018 to become a fulltime crochet blogger.

So that’s what I’m doing now! Turning my hobby into a career is a dream coming true. I am so grateful for this opportunity and can’t wait to share all the free patterns I’m currently working on for you!

How I started with crochet

My first creation

My first creation

I grew up with a mother who crochets, knits and embroiders. Actually my whole family is very creative. I could not stay behind.

It all started in December 2014 when my grandmother crocheted the CUTEST christmas trees ever. I felt the urgent need to learn how to make them. With my mother’s crochet hook I started making christmas trees.

After finishing four Christmas trees it was time for a bigger challenge. I found a great Minion pattern which was my first big project. Luckily I had two weeks of free time since the Christmas break had just begun. My addiction to crochet was born.

Why I share free crochet patterns

I have always admired crafters who make their own patterns and books. As a starter I learnt a lot from the crochet patterns that were available for free. I am extremely grateful to these wonderful designers.

Therefore I decided to offer all my patterns for free as well. Through my website I hope to inspire other crafters and make my crochet patterns available for everyone by providing them for free.

Let’s become friends

I would love to become friends on social media! You can find me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. If you would like to send me an email, you can contact me on info[@]wilmade.com.
