Welcome to Crochet Junction!

Welcome to Crochet Junction!

Crochet Junction started out as FreshStitches – a sister city run by Wendi’s friend Stacey Trock. When Stacey decided to retire from the crochet pattern business, Wendi bought FreshStitches and made it part of Shiny Happy World.

All of our crochet patterns for for adorable stuffed animals – and the very occasional cute hat. 🙂

On this page you’ll find a roadmap to everything about crochet.

Shop for Patterns

Every single pattern (including the free ones) include links to tutorials teaching every skill you’ll need to make that project. That means every pattern is really a workshop! Jump in anywhere and pause to watch any tutorials you need as you go.

With both Stacey and Wendi designing patterns, there are a LOT to choose from. Too many to just have them all in one section!
