About Brittany

I started Just Be Crafty back in 2012 shortly after learning to crochet.  I quickly started making my own designs, and figuring out new techniques.  Just Be Crafty became my creative space to share all my tips, tricks, resources, and free patterns with other crocheters or those just learning.  I’ve loved knitting since I was a kid so I enjoy sharing helpful resources and patterns for that as well.  In January 2019 I took the deep dive and quit my day job to pursue designing on my blog full time!

Just Be Crafty Pattern Tester


What you may not know about me is that I have a BS in Sport & Exercise Science from Gannon University of Erie, Pennsylvania.  Obviously nothing yarn related – shocking, I know lol!  But I like to think my years of experience with knitting and crochet translates to a Doctor of Yarn – so let’s just go with that!


I live in North Carolina with my wonderful husband Trisden, Jake our beagle and Tiny One our cat.  You’ll most likely find me on the couch surrounded by [an embarrassing amount of] yarn while watching reruns of The Office.  If I’m not there, I’m at the movies!
