And She Laughs

I’m Chrisandra from And She Laughs Crochet and Stitch Together Official. I live in Canada across the river from Detroit, Michigan with my husband and our 8-month-old son. I’m a busy baby mom but love to squeeze in crochet time every day.

I learned to crochet in elementary school and come from a family of crafters. I picked my hook back up as a hobby in University. I started crocheting amigurumi gifts for the kids in my life about 6 years ago and fell in love with my little-stuffed creations! I now make a mix of wearables, accessories, and amigurumi.

One of the best parts of being a crocheter is the fiber arts community! As an introvert, it is great to meet friends online and eventually make real-life friends in my own city and across the world! It’s one of the reasons I am happy to be part of the Stitch Together team. The design team includes an amazing group of designers and the Stitched Together group is filled with incredible crafters. I love meeting new crochet friends. My favorite place to interact is on Instagram. Say hello to me @andshelaughs.

Billy the Buck

Billy the Buck was originally made for a friend who is a hunter and was having a baby. I later added the red nose and it’s now part of my annual Christmas tradition! You can make it with a black or red nose and the pattern includes instructions to make a nose cap just like Rudolph had in the movie to change the red nose black!

  1. What would we do without our grandmothers’, in my case. She made sur could cook, sew and crochet plus garden. I too have an extremely large collection of fiber both material and yarn. Thank you for makng me feel not alone in my addiction.
    Happy Holiday’s

  2. Thank you for the patterns. That I could knit. It seems that crochet is now the choice of handiwork. Meaning that those of us who knit are left flying in the wind. Anyway, I’ve been working on my Mock Cable Cowl and enjoying the feel of the Woodland yarn. I got the kit and love the pattern so much that I got 2 more Woodland in another colour to make another cowl! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Happy Holidays! Or bah humbug to those that need it!

    1. Hi Sue, we understand. Thank you for the holiday wishes and we are so glad you’re enjoying our woodlands yarn. Unfortunately more of our US customers are crocheters vs knitters and we have some really good relationships with the crochet community. That’s why we very deliberately matched knit patterns and crochet patterns together with only a few exceptions, usually for amigurumi artists. We hope you were able to take advantage our our Christmas Countdown downloads.
