Pushing the limits of what you can do with crochet and creating easy to read patterns that everyone can finish!

Welcome!

Hi! I’m Ana!

I live in the quiet and sunny country of Portugal.

I have been in love with amigurumi since 2010 when I discovered by accident that you could crochet 3D animals. I fell immediately in love, grabbed my grandmother’s old hooks and yarn and taught myself how to crochet right there and then.

Soon I started to create my own designs and to write my own patterns and today you can chose from dozens of fun designs available.

My passion is to push the limits of what you can make with crochet and coming up with new techniques to do it! I like to make amigurumi inspired by nature like animals, cacti and succulents. I also like to make whimsical and fun crochet cat beds.

My mission is to make crochet and amigurumi accessible to everyone by creating detailed and easy to read patterns so that everyone can enjoy the pleasure of handmade.

Since 2010 I have published dozens of my original designs as written patterns on my website and online shops.

In 2023 I published my first Skillshare class “Amigurumi Basics: Crochet Your First Amigurumi” where undreds of students (and counting) have taken the first steps into the amigurumi world. I’m already working on the next class and I’m excited to show you what it is!

There are many more patterns, tutorials and classes coming so make sure you don’t miss them!

Some feedback from clients

This is not my 1st pattern from BuddyRumi. I think I told you in the past and I repeat myself: your patterns are worth much more than what you ask for. (…) You really can’t get it wrong with your patterns….They are like books!! Absolutely one of the BEST!!!

These turned out so great! The owner of the patterns also emailed me promptly when I had questions and she helped me figure it out. Thanks!
