About Me

Hannah Cross

I’m the designer, creator and blogger behind HanJan Crochet and I’m so happy to meet you!
I’m a Mum to two young boys, wife and also a trained midwife in the UK where I live on the sunny south coast.

How it all began

I learned to crochet about ten years ago and found that I couldn’t help but change every pattern that I made.

I have a complete inability to follow any kind of instruction (just ask my husband) and so I began to design my own patterns instead of changing others!

In 2012 I launched HanJan Crochet and started to publish my patterns and was lucky enough to be featured in some international publications such as Mollie Makes and Simply Crochet (who I am still proud to work with).

From there I launched my blog and in recent years have loved being able to share my patterns, tutorials and articles here on with you all.

My Designs

Over the years my design style has evolved but I have never settled on a crochet niche –

I am always too excited to try new things and design anything that inspires me.

I’d love for you to browse my free crochet patterns and find something you love!

Here are some examples of my favourite designs:
