Knitting with Chopsticks


I created Knitting with Chopsticks to share my creations and help you make your own.

It’s thanks to blogs like this one that I have learned most of what I know about knitting and crochet. My mom taught me the basics of knitting when I was a small girl, bored on the beach (yep, that’s possible when you are 10) and since then I haven’t stopped. Always looking to learn, do more, do better and share my love of yarn, I created Knitting with Chopsticks to make knitting and crochet as simple as it gets so YOU can create what YOU want the way YOU want it.

Engineer by trade, crafter by passion, you will usually find me playing with some yarn while watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and probably eating some chocolate, I’m from Belgium, what can I say?).

My Journey


I’ve never imagined myself launching a blog or a crochet business. I’ve never been on any social media before. I’m not an internet person. But I was snooping around on Pinterest looking for inspiration for the placemats I wanted to knit for my sister’s wedding (you can find them below).

You probably know how it goes you start looking for one thing and end up reading a lot of posts you were not looking for. Turns out I was reading a big blogger’s income report when my husband looked over my shoulder. And he just told me, as if it was the most obvious thing in the world: “Seriously she makes that much from her crochet website, but you can do the exact same thing”.

That was it, he planted this little grain in my head telling me “Why not?” “Maybe people would enjoy what I make?”. So I decided to gift myself my website for my birthday last year and it turns out people actually enjoy my designs and what I make. And the best part, I’m having SO MUCH FUN growing this little website of mine. Honestly, I literally wake up at 6 am on weekends without an alarm just because I’m excited to work on it.

I strongly believe crochet and knitting don’t always get the reputation they deserve. Yes, most of our grandma’s used to knit & crochet, yes, you can make pretty beanies and scarves but it’s so much more. And you don’t have to be an expert to make pretty, modern items. You don’t have to know all the crazy complicated techniques and stitches.

My patterns are all about helping you make something you’d find in a trendy boho shop, something that doesn’t look like your grandmother made it 30 years ago (not that those items are not great too!), and all of that with basic stitches and techniques. I always say: ” If I can’t make it in front of Netflix, I’m not doing it”.

I add a lot of extra explanations and step by step pictures with arrows and schematics to make sure everyone can follow along. If you’re self-thought like I am (and a lot of us are) you might not know something that seems basic for classic trained crafters. I’ve for example never done a granny square.

I aim to help you grow your craft and skills to go beyond the basic beanie or scarf without it looking like rocket science.
