crochet top

Hello! My name is Leire Villar and I am a professional crocheter. Here, at my personal label Ameskeria, I create content for different clients from the craft and publishing world.

This likeable crochet doll with googly eyes is full of colour and raring to go outside after the storm. “And what is Willbe O’key doing whilst the storm continues? Well, the…

Short flared skirt:

My name is Laura, the knitter and crocheter behind Knit and Pepper. Thanks to Coco, a short flared skirt knitted on circular needles, I am here to present myself. For some time now I’ve been based in a country house in the Madrid Sierra. This is where I share my location with my vocation for pattern design and knit and crochet classes. I can’t deny it’s an amazing adventure! I do tend to have a preference for knitting, although I also admit that crochet can produce better results depending on the project. Above all, I love to investigate, learn, mix…
