About Gumnut Crochet

Crochet and crochet design is a hobby, with the aim of promoting Australian ideas and sparking ideas in others. All the patterns on this site are free patterns. My aim is to focus on Australian iconic animals and characters.

I continue to be in awe, that a piece of yarn, can be turned into so many different and amazing things.

I am based in Perth in Western Australia, work full time and have 2 much loved grandsons. The boys are always happy to help count stitches, cut off weaved in ends and unravel discarded pieces. I am also fortunate enough to know 2 other children who whilst not my grandchildren, are a much loved and welcome addition to my life. All 4 of my dear little ones are pictured above – 3 boys and a little girl.

Also very happy to promote your Australian themed pieces. Please email me if you wish to put an item on this blog. Whether it is one piece or more, happy to share your ideas.
