I’m not a huge fan of spiders. To be honest I really do my best to avoid them. But with Halloween coming up it was about time to create a spider I’m very happy to share my house with. So happy that I made the spider even move houses with me! You actually might recognize Scotty. I made him as part of my contribution to Craftaholics Anonymous last year and now I finally got around to update the pattern (including UK crochet terms).

Scotty – The Crochet Spider

I’m San and I’m the voice behind Loopsan. I’m a scientist by day (oh-no nerd alarm ;-)) but at night I turn into a crafter with heart. I love to crochet, bake, travel, keep memories in photographs and love everything DIY.
