Wholly Hooked

Well hello there, I’m Mary-Lynn! I live in Northern Ireland with my husband, our baby boy and our Patterdale terrier, Sadie. When I'm not crocheting, I work full time as a dental nurse.


I started crocheting in 2014, and at first I thought I would never get the hang of it! This was followed by a lot of trial and error until started making headway - I even crocheted my wedding bouquet less than a year later!


I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2019 and was off work for a few months into early 2020 due to my illness, so I decided to make the best of this time by delving deeper into garment making. This in turn lead me to pattern testing, which has been the most amazing journey and has taught me so much. I had always hoped to be able to design my own patterns too, and now I am finally starting to make that dream a reality!
