Have you ever met one of those “crazy” cat ladies who has an array of cats in her home, but also has cat statuettes, designs and patterns of every kind? Those who love their pets that much really have something special about them. Today, I’m introducing you to one of my favorite crochet designers Sara Sach. Now by no means am I calling Sara a crazy dog lady, I think it’s the cutest thing ever!
Sara has two chihuahuas that she just adores with a passion. Most of her crochet patterns are dog-related and has her little cuties posing for the photos. She began crocheting about 25 years ago from books that she got at the local library. She learned to knit too, but did not love it like she did and does, crochet. About 2 years ago she rescued a Chihuahua which she named Maximo. He was always cold and she decided to crochet him some sweaters. She then got another Chihuahua named Rosie Bell. As she continued to crochet them sweaters, hats, blankets and things, other people started wanting her to make things for their dogs. Her husband and son encouraged her to start a web page to sell the sweaters and items she was making and eventually offered free crochet patterns.
