Hi there,

Knitting with Chopsticks profile picture

I’m Hortense, a passionate knitter, crocheter and yarn addict. 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?).

Any questions, comments, are you just want to say hi, I’m happy to hear from you and will do my best to get back to you asap! Send me an email : [email protected]

If you want to be the first one to know when I release a new pattern or tutorial, signup below!
